    Chonsi, remember that old Outer Limits episode with the sentient tumble weeds? That's how I imagine the leaves in your neighborhood, all flocking to your yard.

    Re: Hurricane Sandy

    We're about 200 miles inland and this morning we're being pelted with heavy rain and winds. It's still dark outside so I can't see the effects but I can hear the howling wind. The prediction for this area is for the heavy rain and wind to continue through today and into tomorrow with tomorrow being the more severe weather.

    If it's like this 200 miles from the coast, I can't imagine what it's like for those in its direct path!

    Re: Hurricane Sandy

    One amusing aspect to the hurricanes is the intrepid newscaster who either volunteers or is assigned the news reporting of the storm while standing at the ocean front. There's just something comforting about the predictability of seeing the man or woman standing there in a rain slicker being pelted by surf, rain and 100 mph wind while trying to give a serious report on the conditions. It's hard to hear them as they stagger around and try to brace themselves against the wind only to tell the viewer that it's getting ugly out there ... who would have thought?

    The incessant flapping of rain slicker hood is my personal favorite of the sound effects.

    Rain and rain right now, no school or work today for everyone but emergency workers. What a shame I'll have to miss my dentist appointment this afternoon......

    Mass transport was shut down last night, up in NYC and here during the night.

    Yes tabby, they are showing those newscasters in slickers out on the beach, with the high surf. Silly willy people, we know it is wet out there.......

    Now to reach my stash of chocolate I left in the car, to snack on while reading a good book..........

    I've just seen the reports of the path and intensity and a west coast holiday sounds good right now - if it comes to evacuation run as far and as fast as you can 'cos we really do not want to loose you.
