Default Hurricane Sandy

Just saw where they say she's about to make landfall in about 30 minutes, looks like along New Jersey coastline, and that hurricane force winds will extend out 200 miles. They are saying people could feel the effects as far as a 500-1,000 miles out from the center. My thoughts and prayers for all those in her path and all who will be affected by this monster storm.

Atlantic City and a lot of the other coastal towns got slammed. I live far enough inland and have been fortunate so far. We got some water in the basement but otherwise OK. Should be all clear by tomorrow afternoon. Until then, still strong winds coming through but I'm hoping the worst is over.

That's good news, Mike. Have you lost power at all with the winds? I bet Mark (Llama) is grateful he moved from New York City!

I saw where Gov. Christie was angry that the Mayor of Atlantic City didn't evacuate the area. The thing is even with mandatory evacuations there are people who will not budge, unfortunately, some end up paying with their life.

My house lucked out completely. Lost electricity for about one second (just long enough to make the TV go out and have to be turned back on). No damage at all. Trash cans are even where I left them. I've seen some pictures of the coastline though, and it got trashed.
