Re: She's coming

Shouldn't that say "inconvenience"?

As I was filling my tank yesterday they were putting up similar signs.

Ugh, this is going to be horrible, even if it isn't as bad as they say. Gas stations will be out of gas, foods stores have no food. What a mess.

Sun'10pm analysis of the storm by an actual expert, not a TV ratings whore;

»www.wunderground.com/blog/JeffMa···rc=sandy

Sandy's storm surge is expected to be at least a foot higher than Irene's. If the peak surge arrives near Monday evening's high tide at 9 pm EDT, a portion of New York City's subway system could flood, resulting in billions of dollars in damage. I give a 50% chance that Sandy's storm surge will end up flooding a portion of the New York City subway system.

noon monday forest hills - i just came back from my walkabout to the post office, and it was interesting to see what was open closed etc.

CLOSED: housewares, clothing, office supply, resturant, bakery, coffee, anything that caters to mass transit commuters.

OPEN: major drug store chains, major banks, fast food chains, bagel shops, major grocery chains, fruit/veggie stands

it's just a windy drizzle thus far, so many people are out jogging, getting groceries, and it's like a sunday morning traffic flow. people seem to be in good spirits - we had plenty of notice so whatever we could do has been done already, so for now it's C'est la vie.

Holy Hurricane, the winds just picked up incredibly---we had a short power outage and everything came back, but with winds like this, it's just a matter of time. con Ed says the majority of their customers without power are in Westchester, so I'm not real optimistic.

Stay safe everyone, and see ya on the other side.

VERY windy up here in Warwick, with strong gusts. Rain. Power is flickering occasionaly. Lost internet for a few minutes, but it came back.

Waiting on the creek directly next to my building parking lot to overflow and flood the lot, as has happened before with much lesser storms. As the high tide approaches, it will probably happen. We all moved ours cars to the Burger King parking lot next to our building.

I was just on the phone, looking out my window when the sky lit up like noon time. Seems a transformer went about 3 blocks from me and took power out for a significant area in Fleetwood Mt Vernon.

Please check in folks...as you are able.
I'm sure it affected some of you more than others..and perhaps some not at all...but it would be nice to know you're all ok & made it through..

I know the media here had a field day with predictions & broadcasts...as usual, weather is a big network draw
