    Hurricane Sandy

    Is anyone here in the path of this hurricane? From all accounts, it's a doozy and has the potential to become one of the "perfect storms" as it wends its way north up the coast. Apparently the potential lies for it to collide with a "nor'easter" as well another storm system coming from the west. If that happens, we could see a truly freak storm causing untold amounts of damage if it touches the coast.

    As it stands now, they're telling us in south/central Virginia that sometime on Monday we'll have 35 mph winds and about 3 to 5 inches of rain. That's mild compared to what will hit the coastal regions.

    As always with the weather predictions, the only thing certain is that they will change hourly.

    True ... but at the rate she's going, she'll be flinging sand everywhere and leaving things very sandy.

    Yikes!

    I don't remember conditions like this when I was a child out east.

    It must be that global warming thing...

    Yes, I live at the beach in Noo Joisey and will probably have to evacuate. I will evacuate if I have to, but I hate leaving my home. Our gov put a scare into everyone along the coast, and we did evacuate. Nothing really happened in my area, but we weren't allowed to return home for 4 days. That annoyed me as we could have returned sooner. There were no major issues in my town.

    The front that is moving eastward is set to meet up with Sandy, and create some interesting adventures.
    Could get messy.

    I hear surfs up down at the beach, and that little old storm is coming this way. They say 50-80 mph winds, and 6" or more of rain due here.

    I just know every leaf in the neighborhood will fall in my back yard.......

    Interesting to find out how Sandy will affect the election.

    Yes, I am in the Flood Zone. Last year, my close friend who lives a few streets away, had her home flooded out as she lives in an old fishing cottage on the Bay. She has not even finished getting her whole first floor back to normal. She had to buy all new kitchen appliances, floors, walls, name it. And now again. I live in a six story building on the 4th Floor. Not a bit worried. Last year for Hurricane Irene we kept the electricity, etc.
