Hurricane Sandy NOVA Update

Well, the power just flickered on and off here and the winds are really picking up. If the electricity goes out as I expect I'll be offline for an indefinite period. I took a quick drive around the area about an hour ago while it was still light enough to see any potential road hazards. No flooding here yet and not much in the way of downed trees. I imagine that will change overnight.

Good luck to everyone who is riding this thing out. Hopefully, property will be the only loss. It can be replaced, after all.

Bonus: By reader request

But if you want to go retro and cheesy


  1. they banned truck traffic from the ohio turnpike because of the wind...cant say i recall that happening before...

    & there are storm warnings on lake michigan - 20 feet waves at the south end expected...

  2. The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down to the big lake they call Gitchegoomi. Lake Superior it is said, never gives up her dead, when the skies of November turn gloomy ... That's just life on the Great Lakes. The most dangerous body of water on the planet. Graveyard of ships. Etc. But disasters which happen in the heartland tend not to get as much play as when they happen where the MSM lives. Then the disaster becomes a decades-long obsession ...
