not really. West side is elevated. Aside from the wind blowing shiat around, today just looked like a crappy, rainy day. Coastal Bklyn and Queens and the LES are really fooked and Long Island is cut off with no bridges or tunnels open. Subways might be out for a week tho

ThrobblefootSpectre: Fista-Phobia: Top speed 45 mph??

It was downgraded to tropical storm about 4 hours ago.


For the record, that's not correct. It was not downgraded, per se. Even on the latest 11 pm EDT advisory, the NHC still says the maximum winds are 75 mph, which would make it a hurricane. However, Sandy no longer has the structure for a tropical cyclone, so it does not fit the criteria for a hurricane. It is now, as was as of early evening, "just" a very intense extratropical cyclone -- think more Nor'Easter and less hurricane. The available computer models show that it will weaken rather quickly overnight, but it'll still be plenty windy tomorrow See www.nhc.noaa.gov for more information.

Union county, NJ. Winds picked up considerably around 7pm. Not too much rain all day. We watched a 50+ foot pine situated between our apartment and our neighbor fall safely to the ground. Another shorter one toppled and is leaning on their porch. Our place faces due east so we've been getting the full brunt of the wind gusts.

Power's still on but has flickered about 20 times. Been seeing transformers pop to the east and north for the last 4 hours.

Big piece of siding is hanging off like the One57 crane making a racket. In for a noisy night!

/so, how you doin'?

epoc_tnac: majestic: Not to downplay anyone's personal situation, but this is the weakest "perfect storm" I've ever seen. And I hope it stays that way.

Really? This storm has exceeded the expectations of the media, and they were hoping for the worst.

So, really?


I agree. The total cost of all this is phenomenal - and at a time when no one can afford it. The only reason it's not way worse in terms of human life is all the money already spent on infrastructure getting ready for such things.

Be interesting to see how a strapped economy is going to deal with cleaning up after this. Even if only a 500 mile swath experiences outages, debris, fires, dead cars, flooded housing, that's a helluva lot of insurance claims.

The rain has been far less than anticipated in NYC. The storm surges from the wind are what is farking everything up.


Anticipation means nothing. It was always the surges that were predicted to be the troublemakers - and that's not over. The southern shores of some Great Lakes will also have damaged housing. I don't know about you, but being homeless is not my cuppa.

I mean, it's New York. You all have been through worse and there's not much you can do other than sit there and work off of preparation. I'm from the Midwest, so there is a bit of the regional "who gives a shiat about them" factor, but that's something they have for us as well, so it's an ethical draw.

My building is apparently hooked up to a temporary generator. I just realized that must be the buzzing I hear outside.
It's kind of eerie seeing the streets dark, except for the occasional lights of an emergency vehicle. I was out of town during the northeast blackout of 2003, so I've never seen a blackout here before.

Again, I'm sure a lot of people are going through some tough stuff. I am sorry for them. But the forecasts for death and destruction where I live were of the Day After Tomorrow scale. I'm seeing news dudes standing in front of strip malls with a foot of water running by. Oh the humanity!

I live in the Midwest and I can't judge the East Coast for this. We don't have hurricanes (outside of getting remnants of hurricanes from the Gulf).

Sure we have severe thunderstorms with strong winds, hail and tornadoes, but they only last a few minutes to an hour. A hurricane can last for half a day with a lot more wind and a lot more rain over a much longer period of time.

thanks - luckily, so far the biggest impact Sandy has had on me personally is my second unplanned off day coming tomorrow so it's been kinda nice. Lots of people are gonna have lots of cleaning up to do. Thankfully only a few serious injuries reported so far

Going from "hurricane" to "post-tropical cyclone" is NOT a downgrade. It's the change between a storm having a warm core (hurricane) to a cold core (similar to most mid-latitude storms). The energy that was there as a hurricane is still there.
