Sandy Update.

As of Sunday morning, the center of Hurricane Sandy
is over 200 miles away from Cape Hatteras,
with tropical force winds extending 520 miles
from its center.

We've been experiencing rain and winds since
Saturday morning,
with conditions increasing overnight.
The forecast calls for Sandy to pass
around 150 miles offshore
sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning.

I hate that.
I hate it when a storm hits at night
and I can't see what's happening.

It is expected late tonight
the winds will shift from northeast to west-southwest
as the storm passes by the Outer Banks,
creating a very good possibility of sound-side flooding.
A 3-5 feet of storm surge is expected.
This is not good.

For more information on Sandy,
check out the Outer Banks Voice.

And stay tuned for more Sandy Updates.

We haven't even had any rain yet, here near Baltimore, but they say it's going to be bad. Stay safe, Rosie! I've been thinking of you and hoping all is well.

Grr. Sound like things will be a mess from NC to Boston to Pittsburgh. Damn storm.

We're thinking good thoughts for you and all of our friends on the east coast.

Stay safe.

That bitch Irene did enough damage. Stay safe from Sandy.

Hey all,
So far so good.
Worried about flooding when this passes,
but we've done everything we can do to get everything up off the ground.

And for those who don't know, all housing in this area is on pilings. We don't worry about the living area getting flooded, just the detritus of our lives, which sits in the garage and utility room. Everything is 3 feet high.
