Just wanted to get on here this week while I can. I live in the direct path of Hurricane Sandy in NJ and don't know if/when we will lose power or get flooded out. We were at a wedding on Long Island last night and just made it back to Jersey as they were closing down all the bridges and tunnels to/from the city. It's really windy right now and even though the rains are just starting flooding is already happening and is expected to get worse with the full moon high tide this evening.
Most schools and government offices are closed today and tomorrow (of course my school has only cancelled for today so far, but probably will be closed tomorrow because this storm will continue through Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning).
I know some of you are also in the storm path (perhaps on the outskirts), I pray that you will all be safe and not suffer any property damage/loss.
