What's more interesting is what the models have this storm turning into once it reaches the eastern US seaboard.

Somewhere between Storm of the Century and The Perfect Storm is more like it.

well she did get friendly down in the sand.

Down in Jamaica, they got lots of pretty women
Steal your money then they break your heart
Lonesome Sue, she's in love with ol' Sam
Take him from the fire into the frying pan

On and on
She just keeps on trying
And she smiles
When she feels like crying
On and on, on and on, on and on

Poor ol' Jimmy sits alone in the moonlight
He saw his woman kiss another man
So he takes a ladder, steals the stars from the sky
Puts on Sinatra and starts to cry

On and on
He just keeps on trying
And he smiles
When he feels like crying
On and on, on and on, on and on

When the first time is the last time
It can make you feel so bad
But if you know it, show it
Hold on tight, don't let her say, "Goodnight"

I got the sun on my shoulders and my toes in the sand
My woman's left me for some other man
But I don't care, I'll just dream and stay tan
Toss up my heart to see where it lands

On and on
I just keep on trying
And I smile
When I feel like dying
On and on, on and on, on and on

On and on, on and on, on and on

On and on, on and on, on and on

If that song stays in my head any longer than 10 minutes I shall be very cross with you.

We go together, like a tourism-based economy and rampant poverty!
We go together, like drunk college girls and wet t-shirt contests!
Chang-chang, changitty-chang-che-bop, We'll always be-ee together!

By turning into you mean turning away from, right?

I was hoping that it would head to Asbury Park NJ.

Wait, Sandy? How did we get all the way to 'S' without there being a single significant storm all year?

Other usually reliable models, such as the ECMWF (European model) are not included on that plot.

There have been a ton of storms out in the Atlantic this year that haven't hit anything.

Also, Isaac was significant.

THIS. And it's the ECMWF that keeps slamming a monster ET event into the coast, which is the superior model guidance when compared to the GFS.

/works with the GFS

Maybe Sandy will meet Dexter, Dexter St. Jock.
