Reports On Sandy

Postby Denob » Mon Oct 29, 2012 1:22 pm

OK, so Sandy has begun her westward push and we are all as prepared as we can be.
Let's report here as to what we are all experiencing throughout the storm.

Right now, everything for me is calm...almost too calm (the calm before the storm).
A bit of light wind, but nothing more than flag waving strength (12KPH from the NE)
Thick cloud cover, but no rain yet.

Ouch!!! Hope you still had the shovel by the door :?:

At 12.50 AM it is still 5 degrees C here, winds have switched.. they are out of the north at 14KMpH, barometer is 101.3. Rain quit.
Ottawa radio station is reporting that New York and New Jersey have shut down.. the City of Ottawa is suggesting you bring in the Halloween Decorations or they MIGHT get blown away. :lol:

1:15pm here - high winds and a little rain. Grey and miserable looking. I'm all finished outside and glad everyone is home today!

7pm, pressure started dropping around five, the critters started reacting, blood moon came up tonight, and the wind has been picking up over the past two hours, the day itself, calm, warm and even had some blue sky's at times,..but we have already had flickers on the power and the county folks came by and put out the flood/road closed signs already, just that they are laying down, guess they figure that it was worth putting them out.. hmmm

At 8:45 temperature is still +6 C, Barometer has dropped to 100.3 KPA, winds out of the North at 22KM/H and we have light rain. Satellite TV is dropping out every once in a while due to the heavy cloud cover...That's upsetting my Wife :(
