    The storm surge in the Bay near Stevensville is supposed to be about 4-5 ft. That's not good for most of that area. I'd be surprised if the factory is open today or tomorrow. Gov. in MD is being pretty clear that he wants things shut down and buttoned up across the State by this afternoon.

    Home and dry for now. No more victims - er - patients today. We'll see what tomorrow brings. Everything here is soaked and the winds aren't at maximum yet. Rain outside starts and stops in heavy bits.

    I hope folks are staying safe wherever you are. I've got family in Queens and Long Island but so far so good for them as they ride the storm out. How are things in MD? Power still on?

    Man, that is looking bad. Unbelieveably, when they where showing the seafront of Ocean City on the news there was people stood there! You could see that at any time a huge wave could come in. Crazy.

    JMintzer and rugerpc - Cancel those appointments and go home, not worth it, things will start to deteriorate quickly this afternoon. Looks like peak winds starting to kick in but early evening tonight.

    Stay safe.

    Not to worry. I've been home since 1:00... Snug and dry...

    There is no better perspective on this thing than (edit) a pic like this. I was about to whine a bit about our power flickering on and off. I think I'll just shut up for a while and give these men my respect.

    edit: not sure now if the pic was this week, so I'm not passing the pic along. I do still respect these guys who suck it up and work hard during adversity.

    Just been reading there's some 'fake' Sandy photos being posted on F'book and Twitter.

    Not sure if this site is referring to the one above:

    http://mashable.com/2012/10/29/fake-...-sandy-photos/

    It looks like that one 'may' have been taken in September, with this one being today:



    Not too imporatant in the grand scheme of things, those guys still deserve a lot of respect!

    Not too sure if this is a genuine one or not, not looking great for NY's subway system...



    Wouldn't be too surprising if true as I heard the storm surge was pretty much as high as they feared.

    Cool photo for sure, but it's been photoshopped. I've seen that storm on APOD (Astronompy Photo of the Day). I was going to get it to compare but the site is down, server must be located in NY. The real hurricane is 800 miles wide.

    My daughter lives on 78th and 1Ave. in NYC. She still has power, though tomorrow's commute will be a little tough.

    OK, THAT photo is real. I know a guy who knows a guy who knows a kangaroo and this is real. Besides it is on the interweb and you are not allowed to post anything there that isn't true.

    BTW- I'm a French model.... (belch, "bonjoir")
