Up here they are still watching that mess to see what it means for us. They are just talking wind and rain at this point. It's been an active hurricane season but not much has come up the coast so lets hope our luck holds.

I heard we are having something coming. After reading that report, you would wonder if the East Coast will still be there after next week. We'll see what comes.

I've always found (at least usually) that the more they talk about it, the less we actually get. I've seen everything from nothing to significant snow fall for my region (western PA). Basically, I'll prepare and believe it when I see it. I guess we just have to wait and see how the storm tracks. The weights and chains are on and I'll install the plow tomorrow just to be safe. Right now it looks like it will be all rain from tonight through next Saturday. That should bring down the remaining leaves.

Yeah, like Dave, I wasn't really worried about it, but the article now has me second guessing. I guess time will tell.

Folks out in your neck of the woods will likely see more action than we here in the Pittsburgh region. The mountains usually stop a lot of this stuff from hitting us. They do say that the snow in the mountains may be measured in feet and not inches. Again, we'll see.

I'm still puzzled by the forecast I saw this AM. The forecaster said that the American forecast is that Hurricane Sandy will continue up the East Coast and out to sea. The so-called European formula says the storm will go partway up the Coast and make a sudden left hand turn and go for Ohio. ??? How weird is that? (This is where the scratching head smilie goes.)
