How is everyone set to vote? Because on top of everything, today is the presidential election. Several governors are taking measures to make sure that both storm victims and the rescue workers who have traveled to help them will still be able to vote.

But it's impossible not to wonder what effect this storm will have on the election, with so many people out of power, just getting it back, or just struggling for basic needs. Also, the areas affected by the storm have some of the highest population densities in the country, which is why this storm has been so incredibly devastating. But it also means a large chunk of voters may have an extra challenge in order to vote.

Past doorways, where lovers meet
And huddle in the night

We were able to vote whether it was amarked ballot where there was no power for the electronic vote and in some places we had the electronic booths. I managed to get there and vote. I think what got Obama, excuse me, President Obama the late votes was not only good champaign, but the fact that he took time off the last couple o fweeks to come to the East Coast right after Sandy blow through hear. He could have used that last couple of weeks to plan his election like others did. but he showed he cared, so he got the majority votes in the East Coast from PA CT NJ NY MD VA OH FL for caring enough to come here and make his presents know. That touched allot of us. and thoses undecided actually decided in the heat of the moment. Like Fantasia say we made it through one storm and now we have this Noreastern storm hitting us. My Job closed early, and I made it home among the icy and raining and yes snowing with winds at about 30MPH and getting faster and it is not suppose to stop until Thursday evening. So if I lose power again I will hola at you folks when I get back on line. What a mess. continue to pray for us okay. Fantasia where are you located, Me I am in New Jersey with a cople of inches so far. :cry: :? :( .

((((((((fantasia)))))))) ((((((((sprinkles)))))))) ((((((((everyone else in the storm))))))))

This new storm is the last thing people need, with snow rain and wind, for people without heat, or possibly walls. :( And they said on the news that they were expecting a 3-4 foot storm surge this time, but that the beaches can't absorb that now because the protective dunes were already washed away! :shock:

Please stay warm and dry everyone! :bighug:

Hey everybody!
Sorry it took me a bit to reply, I just came back this morning from Orlando where I spent the past 6 days and managed to catch the last three performances of "Race"....and btw, it was lovely seeing you again Fantasia.

Sprinks, glad to hear you guys made it through this last crazy batch of weather alright. :D

Natalie, Keith is fine. He was in FL during Hurricane Sandy and the snow storm, so he managed to dodge both. His place and family came out from them in one piece too, which was a great relief.
So, nobody concern themselves too much on this front, all is well in our Actor Fella's life!!!

Thanks for asking Natalie 9. The worst thing that happened to me is that my boots got soaked during the snow storm. Like Sprinkles said, it didn't stick for long.
