    I'm in the North East and it seems like we'll see "the storm of a lifetime" when Hurricane Sandy meets a huge cold front in the upcoming days. It's so unusual that all the "experts" that I've heard in both Canadian and American media have never seen anything like it and can't really predict what's going to happen. All they know is that the tropical storm will "blow up" when it meets the cold front from the north.

    I usually like extreme temperatures but this one could be devastating. Sandy has killed more than 40 people already. We'll see.

    Anyone been in contact with our dear friends on the East Coast today to see how they are faring? Haven't heard from Secret yet in NY today.

    Hope you all are safe/well. It's a beautiful sunny, fall day here in the Midwest.

    It's not in NY yet. It's in NC and SC area at this time, tonight will be worse for them. It won't be in NY until Monday. Monday night or Tuesday will be the worst for our area.

    Hi,

    So far, so good but I am dreading delivering on Monday morning. I am going to avoid the tree lined roads as much as possible. I am moving my usual parking place for my van at home (from under my huge oak tree) and parking it in the road.

    I was watching the Weather Channel and had to turn it off to a different channel, it does not look good at all...right now I am watcing 'Pro's guide to Las Vegas' LOL on 'Destination America'. :):eek::D

    Be safe everone and hope you have plenty of batteries, water, hopefully a generator of somesorts...charge up your cell phone now and candles.

    Thanks, Beth for your concern....:cool::)

    The film "Perfect Storm" dramatises one such event, covering the loss of the fishing vessel "Andrea Gale". They are rare, but seem to occur when a hurricane transforms into a "cold core" storm upon meeting the jet stream rather than dying as it moves over colder waters. You are right to fear it, as it breaks the usual rules for both types of storm. Evacuating the coast does not mean you will be safe, even though it will be safer than staying put. It seems most are doing the right thing in stocking up on supplies so that if necessary they can ride out the storm from the relative comfort of home.

    I thought this thread was about a new slot too, till I heard about this "superstorm" on the news this morning.

    I've gotten home from another 3 day "vacation" at the hospital to prepare for this crap :( People here are paranoid as many are STILL doing cleanup from last years Irene and Lee damage. I have to go Wal-Mart today to have my prescriptions filled and it's the LAST place I want to be. My son says they've been crazy for the last few days, my daughter told me the grocery store shelves are almost bare already and none are expected to get deliveries until Wed. or thursday (after the worst of the storm is over).

    I received a text message from my electric supplier stating to expect massive power outages beginning midmorning Monday so they can supply areas which get hit first to aid in rescue, etc.

    To everyone in the path of Sandy, please keep yourselves safe! secret2,BingoT, rockycatt, justplay, LHofsdal and anyone else I've forgotten!...keeping everyone in my prayers that you all remain safe and protected with minimal damage!
