Things are still pretty calm here (Salem, Massachusetts) – I even went running this morning. Work and school were cancelled, so I'm home with my son. Salem is right on the water, but luckily we're about 3/4 mile from the harbor and atop a hill, so we don't expect any flooding.

Stay dry, folks!

Was in Salem a few years ago. There is a little diner just down the street from the museum that has the best chowder in the world! I hope all goes well but it looks like it's going to be a long week.

Hmm, wonder if you're talking about Red's... There are a couple other "traditional" diners in Salem but they're not quite down the street from the Peabody Essex.

Funny thing is, the last couple of weeks have already been pretty long, since Halloween is our big tourist season (not complaining – the businesses need the money!). Hopefully things will be close to normal by October 31st.

Hey everyone, stay safe. It's already getting kind of rough here in Maryland. Not looking forward to tonight. When my power goes out I'll be on my phone playing games. Too bad that only last a few hours 😞

Whew, just got home 20 mins ago and was a very difficult drive from work. Wind with the rain kept pushing the car to either side of the road to the point that my fingers felt like they'd sunk an inch into the steering wheel.
Now I'm only hoping the power stays on.
