Northeaster's, guess who's coming to dinner?

Looks like Sandy (hurricane Sandy that is!)

Almost exactly one year since we were slammed by a freak October blizzard

Hopefully the computer models are wrong, and it stays out in the Atlantic, but by the hour/day, it looks more likely that we're going to take a hit.

Icarus, signmeuptoo, might be time to tie up 'yer yachts!

From what I've seen over the past two days, the predicted tracking keeps moving south and west. Yesterday morning, the Tuesday 2AM point was right over NYC; now it's at the Jersey/Delaware line.

Waiting for the track to settle and end up coming right up the Chesapeake Bay. That would make for some real fun.

Everyone is calling this a "Super Storm"!
Expecting everything from Gale-force winds, snow, heavy rain, possibly tornadoes in areas!

Everybody on the East Coast, batten down the hatches, get prepared! Looks like Halloween may have to be postponed!

Please take care of you and yours, ropeguru See Profile. I know you will, but I'm a mamabear, cannot help saying these things.

I suppose what I really mean is, thanks for reminding us if you're in the path so we can all be on your team. Speaking only for myself, I pray. And I am praying for all of you and your loved ones.

Now its looking like its going to hit DC and then die in western Pennsylvania. Really makes no difference to me personally. I could stay hunkered down here for a week without a problem. Generators operational,plenty of gas to run it and theres always food in the house. It is what it is.

Last year I think we went 8 days no power. After three days I finally got a shower, thanks to my roommate of the time, an emergency responder.

This time I don't have that, but I live in the city so maybe my power will be out for a shorter time. What will suck is food going bad. And not being able to check on alain and son. But I'm going to the store today, I'm gonna get some canned foods and bottled water. As I live in the city, hopefully power will be restored quicker.

I will probably be working, too, because of the nature of the job.

Everybody be safe and prepare the best as you can!

One of my sisters is annoyed with hubby, he refuses to buy a generator, and they can easily budget it, he's being stubborn. Why go without power for a week or more when you can generate? And they live on well water, too.

This is from Jeff Beradelli, a (very, very good) meteorologist in Miami Beach:

To my friends in the NYC/NJ/LI area. I've had a lot of calls today so let me just address this here... Most of you know I have been immersed in the weather since I was 3 years old. I've seen just about everything in weather but I can tell you that I have never seen a storm quite like this one before. It is NOT the strongest storm I have ever seen. Hurricanes can be much stronger.
But here's what makes this different... I have never seen a "Nor'easter" this strong before. I have never seen a storm "back up" into the coast after being over the ocean, building seas, for many many days. I have never seen a storm that is so strong over such a giant "widespread" area. Typically the impacts are more localized... Not this one.
Every storm has completely different outcomes. And since we have never seen anything quite like this before the impacts are difficult to predict. But here's what seems most likely... 1. Plan on being without power for at least a few days most areas. 2. If you live close to the ocean or bay expect coastal flooding worse then any other storm you have seen in that area. If you live near rivers that typically flood you can pretty much count on flooding again.
4. Expect it to be several days before "business as usual" is again possible. There will be many trees down and roads that will need clearing.
Please pass this along if you feel it helpful.

This is the aggravating part of living in an (albeit nice) apartment complex!

No option to utilize a generator here. When the power goes, it goes and there are no "plan B" options.

Hopefully, we won't lose it for a week this time around.

Thanks, we may need all the luck we can get. I have some friends and family disturbingly close to the shore. Tried to get my mom to stay with us (she is in the south-east portion of the state, but on reasonably high ground), but she wouldn't go.
