Stormy Sandy

Image by SnaggleTooth Oct 2012

The next few days we're expecting a large n long duration wind n rain storm throughout the NorthEast USA states. It began as Sandy the Hurricane, then downgraded n will mix with the colder elements plus get bullied by two other storms on both sides to evolve into a very large, strong system.

Winds will have a long fetch over the ocean water before the sustained winds expected above 50 mph to 70 mph travel inland all the way from the coast to Vermont n New York State n on.

 The storm surge is occurring during Full Moon phase, n during High Tide the storm surge is expected to be between 4 to 8 feet above normal. The coastal bays are expecting flooding. The line at the boat ramp here has been long n constant the past two days. Everyone wants their boat out before expensive damage occurs.

 I'm paranoid about losing power for a long time again, like the 5 days that happened after Hurricane Irene a year ago. I had bills to pay by this upcoming week, n instead of waiting til the last day as usual, I decided go get online for it early today.

That's also why on last Day Off I spent alot of time clearing plants on the deck n put most next to the house. Also I walked around the block looking for pretty folliage, because usually storms will strip it all down in a hurry. So here's a couple of colorful sights near my house this week- Pre storm.

Hopefully the after storm pics aren't too exciting this round... Also Of course I have to work n travel there in it, if the tree stuff n water lets me.

My internet connection always hates rain, n the storm will last from Sunday to Tuesday probably. So anyway- If I'm not online for a few days, that would be why. Hopefully I'll be updating n filling you in when I can.

Nice that you got some leaf shots. I see the best shots in places where it's not convenient to get out of the car. :) Hope you don't get too much rain!
