This image from NOAA is really good because not only can you see how big Sandy is, but you can clearly see the cold front coming from the West that is
going to merge with her.
Again, for those that keep trying to say that this is not a potential danger because she is not a major hurricane, you MUST forget the stupid
Hurricane Categories, and simply look at the facts.
LOOK at the picture. Sandy is huge. The cold front sweeping through is uber strong. Yesterday it was 79 here in my neck of the woods in Michigan,
right now it is 53 and has been dropping all morning. That is a lot of energy!
The timing of this storm, with the converging fronts, plus the moon and tide situation is serious. Delaware is right now the target for landfall, but
that can change of course. Even though she will be only a Tropical Storm when she hits, the energy from all of those elements is tremendous. And
remember that the NE quadrant of a tropical system packs the most punch, which right now is looking like Long Island. That NE quadrant brings in the
heaviest tidal surge, winds and rain.
I have not once said this is a doom and gloom end of the world storm, but I have been urging observation and tracking of this storm to everyone in its
The responsible thing to do is to not be someone that goes "No worries, be happy". The responsible thing to do here is to keep watching this
Monster of a storm, update your emergency supplies now, and prepare for the worst.
Peace and Stay Safe
