Here in Syracuse, NY we will get the worst of it Tuesday. Winds up to 50 MPH and up to 5 inches of rain. That was this morning forcast . It all depends where the thing turns inland. People on the coast are going to get whacked though.

Sigh. We could really use some of the rain here, but it looks like a clean miss to the North.

As I live in east central Florida, Sandy has already passed me by. The center of the storm was a couple hundred miles off shore and consequently even though the beaches took a bit of a beating all that happened inland were some heavy wind gusts and a few hours of heavy rain. I just read that the HMS Bounty replica got caught off the coast of North Carolina and has sunk. The USCG has rescued either 14 or 16 survivors depending on which news feed you read. It was also reported that the captain was aware of the storm's pressence but had thought they would be able to sail around the storm on their way to their winter home in St. Petersburgh, Fl.

Lots of wind and rain bands in Philly towne. Atlantic City and other towns in New Jersey already under water. Do we have anyone is West Virginia or Virginia who live in the higher elevations? I would like to know how they are handling the blizzard, which I understand could get up to 2+ feet of snow out of this? NOAA just announced Blizzard warning in ten counties in that area.

Currently watching the news. They're saying that Sandy will hit Southern New Jersey in approx one hour.

Hope everyone has taken cover in a safe & secure location.

Good luck guys.

We are getting pounded here in New Hamnpshire. I finally got my home made generator cover all painted, and ready for assembly. The power has flickered heavily for several hours, and I did a lot of work to get things ready. I have 27 gallons of generator fuel, and I designed the cover so rain or snow won't get into the electrical outlets or generator wiring.

The rain keeps coming in bands, and the wind is the same. There have been several times when the whole house shook, but we are as prepared as possible.

It was a huge relief to get that cover ready! I already have tomorrow off from work, and I can finally relax through the rest of the storm. We are at 750 elevation, with no chance of flooding. I'm sure there are parts of New Hampshire that are damaged, but Rose and I, the 5 cats, the 13 snakes, and the iguana are just fine.

Syracuse dodged the bullet. We only had winds up to 50MPH but My rain gage is not even at the 1/2 inch mark. We had some scatterd power outages but not many. However a line fell off of a transformer and affected 3 houses. Mine was one of them. But my 10K generator kicked in.

Blurf you got it worse then we did. Hope you made out OK.
