Looks like Boston is going to stay warm. Weather.com has it as a high of 59 on Monday, despite rain/wind.

I think I'll be fine in Binghamton - we're kinda used to bigass storms around here. As long as it doesn't cause any serious flooding of the Susquehanna River... and I'd love for it to snow enough that I could justify working from home for a day or two.

My parents in Central Jersey... I'm a little worried for them, but they ought to be fine too, not being near any water.

MelGoesOnTour: I'm in the South of Florida and we've been getting some pretty good wind for the past few days and the storm is no where near us. I feel bad for the easterner's who aren't used to a REAL storm and might likely blow it off (no pun) and be unprepared.


Dude, we get storms. Hurricanes even. Right now I am trying to figure out how to wire a generator to my gas burner so I will still have heat if the power goes out. Which it will, for days...

TrollingForColumbine: If people are snowed in or without power for a long time how could this effect the election?


Being without power means no TV, which means not having to watch constant campaigns ads. It might mean a stronger turnout from the people-fed-up-with-campaign-ads demographic.

The republicans will lift themselves up by their bootstraps and trudge off through the snow to cast their ballots.

The democrats will sit at home, whining about why hasn't Obama sent busses, cabs, boats, trailers, and dog sleds to pick them up and take them to the balloting station.

I was thinking the old and infirm (republicans) would stay home cowering for fear of roaming snow vandals, and the young and hip (democrats) would ride their solar charged electric snow mobiles to vote.

Sandy wasn't enough, they had to go out and give the storm another, more hyperbolic name.

I moved from South Florida to Pennsylvania (Newtown Square) this year to avoid all this crap. And because I'm located closer to the office than anyone else, I'm on the team who gets to come in after the storm blows over.

CNY here. I'm on the opposite end of the Halloween spectrum - it occurred to me today that I don't have all that many Halloweens left where my kids want to go Trick or Treating with Mom and Dad. :*(

Last year's storm was epic, 10 inches of wet heavy snow on still green leaves. Power was out for 7 days, had commuted to work from the inlaws 50 miles away. Never again.

I really hope that is not the same forecast this year. Last year we had a tornado pass half mile from our house, a hurricane, an earthquake, and a freak snowstorm.

Well, I'm on the south-western side of the mountain range (and the weather has been really, REALLY, WEIRDLY warm). If this thing is spinning counter-clockwise (as someone's picture upthread suggested?), it looks like we may be partially shielded.

Eh. This house has lasted over 200 years. It will survive.
We have lots of food in dry storage and a gas stove/oven. Granted, it's for 20 people, but it'll last a few days. And if the power goes out, we'll probably be the first part of Boston that gets restored.

reklamfox: FreakinB: I live on the south shore of Long Island (a block from the water), I commute to work in Manhattan, and my girlfriend's place is inland in NJ but right next to a river. So I could be super farked if this storm is bad.

People keep saying this may be like the 1991 storm. I was 5 years old in 1991 so I don't remember it.

I was also 5 when that storm hit. I remember looking out our living room window 3ft off the ground and the snow was right up to the screen. We couldn't get out the door, so we all climbed out the window. It was cool!


I was eight in the blizzard of 1991, 1978, and we had to dig tunnels to get out of the house. It was full of wintery win.

Damn kids in here. Off my snow covered lawn, I've got onions to belt.

Shadow Blasko: Of course I meant GFS. Oh well


GFS hasn't had a good handle on Sandy over all. ECWMF has been the more accurate model this go-round, but they're all having trouble handling Sandy's extratropical transition in a couple of days. And the models are still out on how strong the trough plowing through the midwest will finally end up being as well as the strength of the ridge over the Atlantic. She's stuck between a rock and a hard place, it seems.

Hopefully the next few model runs will have things sorted out since all the WFOs are doing extra radiosonde launches and it looks like the NOAA Gulfstream Gonzo jet is out doing samples.

This was a terrible storm! 1.2 to 6.9 billion in damages. Between 9 and 7,211 injured. Rainfall totals of 1.5 to 91 inches. This was certainly somewhere between the 3rd and 125th worst storm ever.
