These storm tracks are starting to look pretty bizarre!

Great, my daughter brings west coast Earthquakes to New England and you guys counter with a 'Perfect Storm' for her. She is looking forward to it, let's see what she thinks when she loses power on the 15th floor of her dorm for a day or two.

I'll bet a lobstah dinner this "storm" isn't much more than a nasty thunderstorm with some downpours when (if) it visits New England.

I may have to end up raking some leaves again.

Way too vague. "New England" is pretty large... those of us near the shoreline in CT will get a much different story than someone in Springfield, Mass, and it might not even impact someone in Caribou, Maine.

That's like a "heads I win, tails you lose"-type proposition.

I was going to make a big bat to hang in the front yahd with 20' of re-rod and landscape fabric. I'll leave it on paper for a dew days to see what happens.

Speaking of leaves... I was looking at the yahd today and my next door neighbors commented on the leaves ("They won't rake themselves"). I said I was going to wait out the storm so they would blow away. They didn't see the humor.

From what I'm reading, the likelihood of landfall in New Jersey seems to be increasing, and the likelihood of landfall in Cape Cod and points beyond up through Maine is increasingly slim.

The European model that was the only one to peg this storm for a US landfall from the start has been pretty consistent with it's New Jersey prediction... and I'm inclined to believe that one over the others at this point.

I live in Springfield, Mass (originally from Iowa, tornado country and Iowa weather formed in Mass last year) and I am ready with a generator and I installed a transfer switch on my side of a duplex. All I need to do when the storm approaches is fill my Jerry cans (I just emptied them of fuel into my car and waiting to refill them until winter blend fuel comes out as it burns better in snowblowers). I also have a cable and lock to anchor the generator to prevent theft of the unit.

Another thing I did is I engraved my driver's license number on the generator in multiple locations to aid police in recovery of the unit in the event the unit is stolen.

There's now a path thru Buffalo, NY and into Ontario
About the only place it won't be going is Hawaii

It often is (nothing) when there is a lot of hype like this.

I hope you're right.
Just don't make the mistake of watching the Weather Channel, like I've been, where they love to constantly use the terms: "historical, devastating, monster, unprecedented, something we've never seen before, extremely dangerous", etc.

It is heading farther south. Yes, we will have wind and rain. But nothing like we are not used too.

Not so fast.. the European model is shifting northward, starting to agree with the GFS model.. northern Jersey may be the final destination for landfall. Here is the model.

Lucky us! Been following the news about the storm and most of the models has my area in the direct path. As bad as we may get it, downstate and other areas will get it worse.
Been thru one hurricane in my life. That was Connie back in 1955 when it hit New York City. I was living in Brooklyn at the time.
