Hurricane Sandy has crossed into the Atlantic. The Forecasters are predicting that it may be a Hurricane Category 1 when it hits the East Coast and their best guess as of Friday Morning is that it will make landfall Sunday evening/Monday morning somewhere around Eastern Maryland/Delaware/New Jersey. Add into the mix, there is a Cold Front approaching which will become a Nor’ Easterner that is expected to be here about the same time we will be having the western side of Hurricane Sandy. They are calling this convergence a Super Storm or nicknamed “FrankenStorm.”
The DC area rarely gets a direct hit from hurricanes, but does frequently get some affects – wind, rain & power outages. We were in Charleston, SC, in 1989 when Hurricane Hugo hit, so we are always a bit on edge when we hear a hurricane is coming.
So, yesterday, I got gas in the car. Mel is heading out to get gas for the generator & propane for the grill. His other ‘Honey-Do’ list contains things like clean-up outside, tie down yard items and check out the Generator.
Hunker Down & Be Prepared!
