Last news I heard was that the National Weather Center was downgrading this thing from a Hurricane to a tropical depression once it hits land. We will see. Updates on the hour. Yes I know I have a face for the radio. Right hand on ear like old radio dudes.

Decided to assemble my 76 WMP Luds that I got last Christmas. Got the kick and floor tom done. God do I love a 24" kick. Still have power. Still not quite here yet.

Pretty unimpressed with what we've seen thus far. Medium rain, 30 mph winds. Keep checking in...

As of 7:10 Eastern time, Sandy is no longer a hurricane but will still cause major damage. CBS news.

8PM Eastern Standard time I lost power. I expect at least 4 days without power, due to sheer overload on the utility part of things. Generator running, internet unaffected, trees holding, so far, as good as can be expected.

Manhattan got hammered. Water running down the streets. Lower Manhattan lost power. NYU Medical Center evacuated due to loss of backup power.

Hardly any rain but over 2 feet higher storm surges than the previous high set in 1821. The ocean just came roaring in and flooded tunnels, subways etc.

My home and business are safe and sound for now.

Power went out a few times last night but ultimately stayed on. Surveyed the damage this morning and there appears to be no serious casualties. I haven't been following the news that much but it sounds like the storm jogged north a bit and hit Jersey instead of DC?

I barely got any rain, some, not torrential by any stretch, pretty gusty winds though. It's not even rainy or windy here now, just chilly. Power continues to be out 13 hours after losing it, 1 broken branch that is laying across the utility wires in my yard, but the wires aren't touching. One tree went over in the woods behind my house, other trees are propping it up, poses no threat even if it fell. I got spared. I thought it was gonna be like Dorothy in Kansas from what they were telling me. The storm was bad for New Jersey.

Got pounded with rain and wind all night but amazingly didn't lose power in my neighborhood, though many thousands in my town did. Many people on my street has collateral damage from trees falling and wind blowing pieces of houses off so I consider myself lucky.

Not much sleep from all the noise but happy as a clam that I'm in a much better shape than most.

Hope I'm wrong but I'm willing to bet Anthony (Gvd) got hit much harder.

I hope you guys are doing well so far.

The news articles and flashes about the hurricane have been kinda extreme so far.
I don't know how they do it in the States, but here in Sweden a lot of newspapers tend to write pretty extreme and "scary" headlines. Today the headline about the hurricane is "THEY DIED IN THE STORM" and yesterday it was "PEOPLE WILL DIE!"

Some article said that the americans are yet to connect the hurricane to global warming and such. Have there been any talk about global warming, or carbondioxide, or discussions about how we destroy our planet? A journalist wrote that after this hopefully the Americans will "understand" what we're doing to mother Earth. Have the press connected the disaster to global warming yet?

Great that the effects are more limited than the media suggested!

After the Italian verdict you wonder if disaster experts will ever dare say "Is is safe" again. Seems to me that we'll get a "boy who cried wolf" effect. I'm wondering if they have any adjectives left to warn of a disaster of the sale of the Boxing Day tsunami.

Absolutely not. Not even a single word. Amazing. You make a good point. I recall recently that the owner of a popular cable tv channel called The Weather Channel came out against the global warming theory. So their channel won't even mention it. It is so ridiculously political. Dumb. Stupid. Oil companies own the politicians so it seems like nothing will ever be done. We pray for the vicitms of the hurricane of course, but let's discuss why. Frustrating.

This articl;e was from yesterday. There has been discussion for some time,

WASHINGTON — Climate scientist Michael Oppenheimer stood along the Hudson River and watched his research come to life as Hurricane Sandy blew through New York.

Just eight months earlier, the Princeton University professor reported that what used to be once-in-a-century devastating floods in New York City would soon happen every three to 20 years. He blamed global warming for pushing up sea levels and changing hurricane patterns.

New York "is now highly vulnerable to extreme hurricane-surge flooding," he wrote.

For more than a dozen years, Oppenheimer and other climate scientists have been warning about the risk for big storms and serious flooding in New York. A 2000 federal report about global warming's effect on the United States warned specifically of that possibility.

Still, they say it's unfair to blame climate change for Sandy and the destruction it left behind. They cautioned that they cannot yet conclusively link a single storm to global warming, and any connection is not as clear and simple as environmental activists might contend.

"The ingredients of this storm seem a little bit cooked by climate change, but the overall storm is difficult to attribute to global warming," Canada's University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver said.

Some individual parts of Sandy and its wrath seem to be influenced by climate change, several climate scientists said.

Scientists in denial. Really nothing on the national news, television networks. Endless hours of titillating coverage and nothing at all. Really sad. They just chalk it up to "it's natural." Climate change isn't meaningfully discussed. Presidential candidates ignore it. Why? Follow the money. While towns are wiped out politicians can rest easy knowing that the oil companies who bankroll their campaigns will always be there as long as they keep delaying and delaying meaningful discussion and action concerning global warming. They can be "inconclusive" forever and just let our grandkids deal with it. Pathetic.

Now back to drumming.

Global warming and its effects and causes will be debated for ever. For every study that says man is to blame, there are three to say it is natural and vice versa. In this election year no one wants to touch this with a ten foot pole.

My understanding is that frequency and severity of cyclones / hurricanes are affected by more factors than anticipated and the projections didn't work out, which is incredibly good news (touch wood).

The bad news is that projections about storm surges are proving to be correct, which means more flooding associated with storms.

Never. We are capitalist pigs. In fact, if the Republicans had their way, we wouldn't even have a FEMA to "help" people. This agency was put into place by President Jimmy Carter, FYI (who, btw, was the president that legalized home brewing).

Still no power. All my neighbors are on but myself and 2 others on my cul de sac. I think my transformer's circuit breaker needs to be reset, as I saw flashes before it went out. Wishing I had a hot stick so I could do it myself. Will try and secure one for future issues. My generator starter motor is not cooperating and the manual pull cord broke a while ago. Takes about a 1/2 hour to start my generator. Ugh. On top of that, my wife is a pain in the ass during a crisis. Everything is wrong and I am to blame it seems. Please PECO turn my power back on!

Haha! You're an electrician right? Climb that transformer! Sorry to hear you're still without power. I know it's getting colder too.

Yea, I'm an electrician. Can't really get my body up near the transformer, have to get past the energized wires first, too dangerous. They reset the breakers on pole mounted transformers from the ground with a big telescoping stick with a hook on the end, the hotstick. Maybe if I cast a 100 lb test fishing line up there and try and hook it....

Let's see she can't sleep because she needs the sound of a fan to sleep (generator is off while we sleep). The smell of the exhaust from the generator is making her sick. Even though I shut it off at night. And it's outside. She was sick all day at work, exaggerated. She comes home from work yesterday, first thing she says, very accusingly, how come the generator is on when the power is back on? (Our neighbors power was restored, I knew this, ours was still off) Nice to see you too babe. I'm not shutting this thing off until I know we are back on because it doesn't like to start up too easily. Washing my hair in ice cold water this morning...after struggling with the generator for a half hour...so she could have power to get ready for work... Hey, watch it, you're dripping water on my clothes...I'm trying very hard to be nice. She has it hard enough.

Yes, both Steve & Anthony are still conspicuous by their absence. I hope you two guys are ok!

Larry, can "she who shall be obeyed" still smell the exhaust from the generator? I mean, considering it's outside, & 24 hours since it was switched off, God help you if you ever brush too close to another woman who's used perfume in the last month ;)

I'm safe from all blame for at least a week. I bought a new Welsh terrier puppy to partner our existing dog.

That's a point, Jules. He's an ex cop and pretty sharp so my money's on a power outage and or water damage.

Larry and Jules, I used to go out with you're wives' brother. Somehow I kept doing things wrong which were never explained - I'd just get the silent treatment.

Sometimes I love being single :)

Steve is too smart to not survive this, and Anthony is just too ornery to let some weather beat him.

And Andy those dogs look so....English to me. They probably bark with an English accent, are overly polite, and have tea at 4. Are their names Origin and Performance?

I still have at least 3 days I'm told before power is restored. Hope my generator can start about 6 more times.

That's good to hear. Anthony's not the tallest of guys, so I was concerned about flood levels ;) Imagine the mouse panic if Disney California suffered the same fate ;) ;) ;)

Thanks guys :) They're Welsh terriers Larry, so not English, but part of the same lump of rock. My older dog's name is Yogi, the 8 week old is Rufus, but Welsh terriers punch well above their weight, so fit nicely into the Origin vibe :)

"Americans" refers to over a nation of over 300 million individuals. Do you think that perhaps describing 300 million people in one grand judgmental sentence might be a tad bit of oversimplification?

Poor dumb Americans don't understand what we're doing to mother Earth. Please.

As a matter of fact, it is being brought up everywhere as a subject. Certainly amongst all but the most staunch opponents.

But let us be clear here. Driving an electric car or recycling a few plastic bottles is like spitting in the ocean. What these coastal areas need is major engineering projects to proof them against the new reality of storms.
