Hey all,

I'm right in the path of hurricane Sandy. If I forfeit any of the debates I'm in, sorry about that.

i totally forgot about the possibility of loss of power. I'm only in RI, so it shouldn't be too bad. Last hurricane we lost power though, so who knows.

What are you guys complaining about? I'm in NJ, that's literally the heart of the storm. The whole state is yellow on the weather map for possible blackouts and all the models pass directly through Southern NJ.

15 miles away from Philly places me in South Jersey.

When's the storm supposed to hit you? We've had dark skies here for about 48 hours. Storms supposed to hit tomorrow afternoon here.

It's supposed to be here by now. They said Sunday night, but all we have is dead placid weather. Last year, Irene wasn't all that bad either...I really hope I'm not underestimating the storm though

Are you too young to remember Hurricane Bob? It's the most powerful hurricane that came through there when I lived there, probably 1990ish.

That is strange. I heard there was supposed to be 100 mile winds.

We don't usually get tornadoes here, well at least not near the Great Lakes.

I'm in the long Island sound in New york...

Winds are pretty bad but not killer... the real bad part is that it's a full moon and the tides are so high.

My house is fairly high up but people down the block have already been flooded real badly.. and tonight's high tide, given how the storm's coming tonight, is supposed to be at Least three feet higher.. probably more :/

I also work at a boatyard (been working non-stop the last 3 days).. and several of the boats jacks are already in the water, meaning they could fall...

and if we get any more than three feet there's a couple of smaller (but still big) boats that'll be floating around...

Further, my boat's shored up pretty low in the yard, and will definitely have it's shores in the water tonight...

Hurricane sandy is a Bitch.

Uh,...they kinda have to. This hurricane spans 1,000 miles and is attacking Americas most densely populated region, America's capital city (DC), and America's capital of finance (New York), while reaching unprecedented flood levels and power outages as well as cancelling thousands of work offices, thousands of schools, campaign events, and suspending the work of the Dept. of Labor, hence suspending the release of this month's job numbers.

Any channel not covering this isn't worth its salt......Oh look! FOX News is prating on about Benghazi

There are plenty of places to get info about the storm, the major networks could spare a few minutes to talk about something else for a while.
