Tropical Storm Sandy to hit NYC and East Coast

Just started seeing more coming out about this. Speculative right now, but every outlet is saying this will move out to sea, and come back to come right at NYC and the east coast.

Just wanted to inform everyone to get a jump on things, from food to back up plans, etc.

The weather channel stated there could be power outages for millions that might last "weeks". Let's hope not.

It has to do with the storm meeting and joining a severe cold front. Once they collide... Things turn violent.

the problem is , and it's unusual , is that the cold front would push it to the ne, but ,there is a high pressure system aloft, not low,above mass, this spins clockwise, the cold front is a low which spins counterclockwise

so basically the storm has nowhere to go but nw

they are saying this could have the lowest mb pressure of a storm this far north ever, worse than the perfect storm of 91

gonna suck 2 days with no power that's for sure


looks like a female is gonna ruin some lives again

Irene did massive flood damage to my area, and they are saying this will be far worse if it actually hits. Time to empty out the basement....again.
