WEATHER REPORTS here are now warnings to be prepared… but we still wait. There will be many other things to focus on if Sandy turns into a Nor’easter, considered the most fiercest of storms. However, right now fall is in full bloom, so I’d rather just take in that view, because if Sandy hits it will be gone.
Confidence is growing that Sandy will be a major threat to portions of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast.
Though we feel that it’s likely Sandy will hit some portion of the Northeast or Mid-Atlantic coast, there remains uncertainty with where this occurs and the exact magnitude of the impacts. The forecast involves a rare, complex atmospheric setup that will allow the system to pivot back to the northwest into the region rather than simply moving out to sea.
[...] Residents from New England to New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia should remain vigilant and be prepared to take action in the next few days.
I’ve been in three fierce storms since we landed in the Washington, D.C. area, one was the worst snowstorm in 100 years. The other still knocked out the power for days, and the last one did too. We take weather very seriously here now.
