Frankenstorm

Anyone else hunkering down for Frankenstorm? Here in MD we are looking to get nailed, so to speak. Kids' school has already be canceled for the next two days. Our area is calling for 4-8 inches if rain with some pretty good sustained winds. We just arranged for 8 kids to come over tomorrow for a movie-thon. I hope the power stays on... this could be quite a few days.

Re: Frankenstorm

You never really know what is media-driven hysteria and what is real. Right?

Hopefully this one isn't as bad as they say...

NYC has shut down public transportation, including the subway. I guess the storm's predicted landfall moved up the coast today... as of last night they were predicting it to hit between Ocean City, MD and Baltimore. That could have been slightly problematic for us marylanders.

Re: Frankenstorm

Is it going to be mostly rain or will there be snow? With that amount of moisture a snowfall could be several feet in one dump!

Some parts of our state might get over a foot if snow... Luckily my area is just rain... Some flakes might come down but nothing major.

Nothing is worse than heavy/wet snow on trees with leaves. Could be a power company nightmare!

Re: Frankenstorm

Yes, thats a big concern. My thoughts go out to everyone. I hope it turns out to be a lesser storm.

Re: Frankenstorm

We live in the northern Va area. Our neighborhood, built in the 70s, has overhead power lines and lots of tall pine trees. It's a good bet we will lose power here.

I live on Long Island and besides home theater, fishing is my other passion. I was at the South Shore Saturday getting some fishing in before the storm. I got hammered by the waves. As of Saturday night all roads leading to the South Shore beaches were closed. It's going to be really bad tonight with the storm surge and high tide combined with the full moon, we're looking at major flooding.
Right now it's not raining much, but we're expecting heavy rain in a couple of hours with increased wind gusts to 75-80 mph! Tonight when Sandy makes land fall the wind gusts are expected to reach 100 mph! They say this is supposed to last for 36-48 hours! Yikes!!!
Our power lines run behind the house and there is a lot of trees I can expect a power outage sooner or later.

Re: Frankenstorm

Stay safe and I also hope it is nowhere near as bad as they are predicting. Always better to be prepared for the worst though. This is one freaky storm - as my mom used to say - its the Russians!
