Sandy is the short name for Alexandra

Pretty weird, as Ive been searching for my Stormfront CD for years. "The Downeaster 'Alexa'" is my favorite song on the album. I found it a few days back in business desk drawer as Sandy was forming.

IMO, "Sandy" sounds a lot more like a short for Sandra, which is already too short to be shortened, so it's more about intimacy. Alexandra is naturally shortened to "Alex", I don't know how you came up with "Sandy".

The stormfront album and the cover were really more about a disappearing way of life - the fishermen of the Atlantic.
The flag on the cover is the official "gale warning" flag to alert others to dangerous conditions. Downeaster Alexa is a song about a fishing boat and how they can't survive as the fisheries have been wiped out.
I love the song, love the album but I'm not going to give Billy Joel credit for storm predictions. His accomplishments as a musician and songwriter should be enough.
