Hurricane Sandy 

Here we go again, there's another hurricane headed for the
north eastern U.S.
At least this time we have plenty of notice. I've been prepping
my house all day, cleaning gutters, trimming trees, etc..

To those of you in this area, best of luck!! Hope you make it
through with no damage or power outages!

Could effect over 50 million people.

Good luck, Todd and all others in the way of the storm.

In 1954 Hurricane Hazel came up the Potomac. The storm surge nearly overtopped the seawall around Bolling Air Force Base where we lived. I remember the wall being 12 feet high. The wind took out some of the 80-foot sweet gum trees in the park behind our quarters. The Tidal Basin was well outside its banks the next day.

Hope none of that happens again!

Be safe!

Take care Todd. I also have people who live on the Eastern Shore in Maryland. I'm worried about this surge.

Marta and I brought in the potted plants on the porch of our townhouse and secured loose items that might be turned into missiles by the wind. Last night we went to a play in Washington, DC, "The Goverment Inspector," written in 1836 by the Russian author Nikolai Gogol. Having done all we can to prepare for the storm, I went to a pub two blocks away for a couple of India Pale Ales this afternoon and just returned home. We will ride out the storm, read, play guitar, and hope for the best for the entire Eastern Seaboard, including Washington, DC.

Cheers,

Bill

Take care Todd and everyone near the coast.... up here in upstate NY it looks like we will probably just get a lot of rain and wind and probably power knocked out for a while. I guess I might get a little forced vacation time to work on my Cantiñas by candle light...

Come to Lebanon - you'll get plenty of romantic candle-lit nights.

RE: Hurricane Sandy (in reply to Guest

It is 11:00 AM as I write this, and the entire Washington, DC metropolitan area is shut down. The federal, state, and local government offices in the area are closed, BWI, Reagan National, and Dulles Airports are closed, public transportation (Metro, bus, rail) is shut down, and schools are closed. It actually is not bad right now, raining moderately with no high winds yet. But the storm is expected to begin hitting with increasing force about 4:00 PM this afternoon, and continue with increasing ferocity thereafter, into the night and continuing tomorrow morning. At this point, the prediction is that New York City will bear the brunt of the worst effects.

Cheers,

Bill

hmmm, no wonder it's still raining.

No worries. I bought wine, and luckily these next days are my off days. Hopefully it won't mess up halloween for the kids wednesday.

RE: Hurricane Sandy (in reply to ToddK

so far so good here in boston. the winds have been gusting upwards toward 70 mph pretty much all day and the 6 foot solid wood fence between where i live and park and my neighor is broken but so far it is not air borne. the coastlines have been getting whacked big time--and another high tide is an hour or so away. in chatham where great white sharks have been around for the past few months they had 40 foot waves--guess them great whites had to make a fast exit out to sea.

ok, off to eat supper while i have electricity and can see my food.

RE: Hurricane Sandy (in reply to ToddK

Made it through, but just barely. I have a large dead oak tree
in the yard that absolutely fell apart in the 55mph wind gusts. Huge,
and really heavy branches flying everywhere. I was sure the tree or a huge branch was coming through the house but it never did.
Absolutely terrifying. whew.
No idea how i still have electricity and internet. Its miraculous.

Lots of cleaning up to do, but very happy we were spared any big tragedy.
People in New Jersey and New york got totally leveled by the surge.
