    I will not be down the shore for Sandy, but I will be Tweeting to share information from @byJenAMiller as long as I have power. If I get thrown into Twitter jail for Tweeting too much, as I did with Irene, I will start Tweeting from my former handle @jerseyshorejen.

    If there are any other accounts you suggest our readers follow, tell us in the comments below.

    Stay safe, everyone.
