Hmm… I guess I’ve been tuning out the weatherfool these past few days… strange that my wife has not mentioned it, she is much more concerned with weather than me. They jerk you around so much I never trust them anyway.
Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for the heads up.
I live on the east coast about 60 miles north of of Hatteras and have been following Hurricane Sandy. It is still projected to pass fairly well off shore, so I only expected some high waves and minor coastal flooding. I didn’t realize Sandy was expected to combine with another storm which could change the picture to a much worse situation. I still remember the NorEaster that later became ‘The Perfect Storm’ off New England. We had major flooding and coastal erosion from that one.

-Nope…

The furnace still uses electricity for the blower and more likely than not, the igniter.

The storm is an unusual mix of a hurricane and a winter storm.

I’m pretty sure they mean “FORMERLY unusual”. Welcome to climate change.

The good news is that if you want a backup generator, a much smaller one will do.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiight…

The media will call it anything they want…the more sensational, the better.  Winter ‘hurricanes’ are not common, but they aren’t all that rare, either.  Nor are ‘winter’ storms at the end of Oct/beginning of Nov…

Didn’t we go through this last year with Irene? If it’s worse than Irene then we could be in for some real trouble this time. I didn’t get hit so much, but the areas around me were all flooded and power lines went down last year. And I remember looking for batteries last year and paying extra because I waited until the last minute. And of course I used those batteries for other things now. rolleyes
I’m gonna stock up on ramen noodles and seltzer water this time; at least I can enjoy those.

...experienced a “noreaster” when I was in Wildwood years ago.  The beach (which is huge) was completely swallowed up by the surge and water was menacing the hotel where I was staying at (which had sandbagged the ground floor).  Had to stay an extra day as many of the roads leading out of the area were flooded.  Last time I heard winds howling like that was in a strong storm that hit the Washington coast with gusts that approached 100mph.

Fortunately the storm also closed the Philly airport as well so at least we didn’t have to worry about any rebooking fees.

...it’s five minutes to midnight…

I’d rather have a blue sky above me than a blue screen in front of me.
