WES...

I'll have a birds eye view of the storm. Seems it will make land fall in Asbury Park
is mere 12 miles from my house. To make matters worse I live within 200 yds of the Manasquan River
one of the largest rivers that is fed from the Atlantic Ocean...

My wife and I have spend the day boarding up the house, getting gas for the generator, putting together
all our paperwork in case we get evaced in the middle of the night. On top of it all it's a full moon and high tide
when the storm will make land fall about 8:00pm tomorrow night.

 Worst case 8-10 foot surge.. (bye bye house), least.. 3-4 feet of water in the basement if the pumps fail.

The effects of this storm will be historic.........

I've lived through a few Hurricanes and Northeaster's but right now I'm shitting in my pants.
There is not enough time to wrap and bag any decks, so it's going to be a long 48 hours for sure.

Everyone should keep those souls in the NJ,NY,PA and the rest of the Northeast in their prayers..

It's going to suck big time.. and on top of everything else I have to work.
24 hour shifts till Weds.. Go out take some photos, video, head back the car edit and transmit.
Then back to another location, and so on... News must get out to the rest of the world.

I haven't slept since Friday, just trying to get everything done before this thing strikes....

Hope to talk with you guys with better news on Weds or Thursday..

My sister is in NJ too on the Navesink.  She's had water up to her front steps before from Noreaster storms.  I'm sure this will be worse.  Major storm surge.  Hope you get a break Mark.  Stay safe.  Don't drive into any deep water.

Reports here are saying that the Raritan Bay area will greatly effected by the storm surge.
Everything is still up in the air as where this thing will hit land.
Reports are that if you are south of the impact area you will feel
less effects of the rain, but more wind...

North of impact area...

well... let's not think about it..

New York City is going to impacted big time.  Since it's coming on shore from the south
NYC is going to bear a big brunt of the storm.

I can't remember a time when a hurricane was a threat to the city.

So if it makes land fall in say Atlantic City, well everything North of that will
be hit really hard.


It will be total Hell for sure

Was this Hurricane geo-engineered?



Hurricane Sandy is a Geoengineered Monster of a Storm “Frankenstorm.”

My brother and his wife are in Brooklyn and they have been moving all their basement stuff upstairs because they are only a block away from the waterfront. They really are bracing for this one as it will hit them hard.

I just got home from working my shift today....

I saw things I've NEVER seen weather do before. It was totally insane
and Hurricane Sandy isn't even here yet.

It has sped up and will make land fall about 6pm between Atlantic City and
Long Beach Island in Ocean County.

 I witnessed surfable 5-8 foot waves in the Raritan Bay. I saw the tidal
surge come roaring up a street in Old Bridge.

The wind is howling at any where between 40-60 mph steady with gusts
over 80mph.  My car changed lanes on the Garden State Parkway....WITHOUT
me turning the wheel.

Parts of the boardwalk in Asbury Park, Atlantic City, Wildwood all GONE.



And the FUN hasn't even started yet.....

Supposed to have 40MPH winds even as far away as here in Milwaukee tomorrow.  Huge waves predicted for the Great Lakes.  Not sure if you could surf waves that big here without dying, but I guess there were some surfers out today, though.


Officials around Lake Michigan are hunkering down in anticipation of waves projected to top 15 feet just off Milwaukee's shoreline Tuesday night.

According to the National Weather Service, gale- to storm-force winds gusting to between 45 and 60 mph are expected over Lake Michigan on Tuesday with windy conditions along the lakeshore and gusts to about 40 mph from Sheboygan to Milwaukee and Kenosha. That could produce waves of 14 to 18 feet.

Milwaukee County parks workers started setting up snow fencing along Bradford Beach on Monday to keep sand from blowing onto Lincoln Memorial Drive. Workers were also preparing structures along the lakefront for the expected storm.

"This storm won't have the same impact here as it will on the East Coast, but we are expected to feel the effects and we plan to be as prepared as possible," County Executive Chris Abele said in a statement.

Port of Milwaukee officials are taking steps to avoid damage to both the vessels and docks.

The National Weather Service Monday issued Great Lakes gale and storm warnings in effect through Wednesday. It says waves on Lake Michigan could be 10 to 18 feet by Monday afternoon, then build to 20 to 33 feet on Tuesday before subsiding. Waves on parts of Lake Superior and Lake Huron could top 20 feet. On Lake Michigan, the southern lakeshore is expected to be hit the hardest - from Chicago to northwest Indiana and southwest Michigan.

Dangerous conditions are expected along piers and breakwalls. Snow linked to the storm could fall in parts of Michigan.

Projections from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration were more modest but still show 20-foot waves.
