The Great NorthEast "Frankenstorm" .....

I certainly want to be on record as saying that my thoughts and heart are going out to over 65,000,000 people located in the path of this quite possibly a once in a generation storm. Hurricane Sandy's 90 turn and West path toward the New Jersey ("vicinity") Coast allegedly will be devastating.

The danger will not lie in the wind and rain but the tidal surge. Already the surge heights on Cape Hatteras and north is greater than Isabelle from last year. The millibar ratings this morning have been seen as below 953 which would mirror Isabel or some of the worst hurricanes ever.

Keep all those folks in your prayers, I hope that all the 1st responders and safety officials stay safe and please stay home OR evacuate on demand to a safe place.

I have already read a street closure notice from our former town in Connecticut. When I was working there, all the streets listed were the same once that I saw before and flooded. No change.

Please take these warnings seriously and please stay safe.

At this time the storm is making its way to the northeast and has not made its turn west.

We've lived where we currently call home for almost 28 years.
About 1/4 mile away from Lake Erie in N/E Ohio....
This is the first time we've been warned of possible lake flooding from rising Lake Erie waters and a "storm surge"....
This is gonna be a bad one for sure.
I never dreamed we would see this type of event from Lake Erie.

Best wishes to all in the path of this storm... Living in "Tornado Alley ", please don't take this for granted... At least these storms give you a few days warning...

We thought we moved out of hurricane country when we moved to MA from NC, we went thru Fran and Floyd there, the damn hurricanes followed us up here!

We're ready though, went around the neighborhood and cleaned out the storm drains, got the portable generator working and gas cans filled, filled the RV with water and will move it in the AM to a sheltered area by where I work for the worst of the storm, (too many trees over it's parking place by the house).
