Nor'easter to batter areas beaten by Sandy

Hi everyone.

Thanks for all the kind words on the last post.  We did finally get power over the weekend – but so many others around our neighborhood are still in the dark, and it’s cold at night. 


This is getting to be a very dangerous situation for hundreds of thousands in all of the New York boroughs, New Jersey, Long Island and Connecticut.  And we are now expecting a Nor’easter to move into the same areas that Sandy hit.  



This won’t be anywhere near the strength of Sandy, but it could bring 60-70 mph wind gusts, heavy rain or snow (depending on how cold the air is that wraps into the system), some storm surge and coastal flooding.  For folks that are already vulnerable with damaged homes or no homes at all, this is the worst news possible.  We’re still trying to fine tune the forecast, and we’ll bring you the latest.   For now, I’m just hoping folks can rely on their neighbors, family and friends to keep each other warm and out of harms way.

As for the election forecast,  Tuesday’s weather will be calm for most.  The two exceptions being the Southeast and Florida where showers and a few thunderstorms are possible, and the Midwest will see showers with even a few snowflakes mixing in.  No reason not to get out the vote!



Talk to you all soon.  Thanks for being patient with the blog.
