Pumping and Hurricane Irene

Is anyone in the 'danger zone' for Hurricane Irene? I am in NJ and am starting to worry about the amount of time I might have to go without electricity. I have a pretty ehhh manual pump I can use, but it barely gets anything out. I'm just worried about my supply being affected by it! I just hope things don't turn out as bad as they say...

I have a car adaptor for my Medela Pump in Style. So if we lose power, I guess I'll be sitting in the car. They say the storm has weakened, I'm hoping it weakens more before it gets here (I'm also in NJ).

The power went out where I am, but only for just over 48 hours and not the 4 to 5 days like they said which was really good. I found my battery pack for my pump and bought some batteries. I hope your area did alright and you are safe!

I use rechargeable batteries and charged them beforehand just in case!
