Hurricane Sandy. Sounds too benign to be a real threat. It's only a category one at the moment. Nothing like when Juan bashed the family cottage nine years ago. Not like Gustav the year before that knocked down the big old birth at the farm house. But still a big water dump is a coming. Six cm or so by Thursday according to the handy dandy Sandy-app over at The New York Times. Not sure why it needs to take the sharp left turn into Philly. As always, the best information is at the Forecast Discussion at the NOAA. Got all the yard stuff stowed away yesterday. Rolled my ankle on a skittles log and slammed into the ground like only a fat man in his middle age can.
Update 2 pm Monday: Storm now tracking more easterly. Eye no longer thought to be passing over Lake Ontario and may shoot up to Quebec more directly.
