Re: Hurricane Sandy

It's getting a little spooky. Bf lives in a building on the 8th floor so the winds seem louder up here.

Yes it is a real storm but not from Sandy I guess.

Ok, this one is real. lol

Look at those high waves! Wow.

High Tide is almost here too. And a full moon tonight too. Wild stuff!

Yeah we will see what kind of a storm we get tonight in Ontario.  I think I better bring the Halloween decorations in tonight.

That's a good idea!  Or all your goblins and witches may be all over the road. lol

Re: Hurricane Sandy

It's been so windy outside today here in Detroit, Wizard of Oz is nothing compared to this wind

Re: Hurricane Sandy

After Hurricane Sandy, I hope we don't have to worry about Hurricane Spongebob or Hurricane Squidward.

Re: Hurricane Sandy

There are so many severe weather emergencies in Detroit right now from the winds ahead of Sandy.  This is crazy.  I feel like I'm in the movie Twister right now.  My friend in DC isn't allowed to leave his building because of the crazy weather.  I'm so glad most people are being safe.  Prayers with all those in effected areas

Re: Hurricane Sandy

headcount.  I'm still here...

Re: Hurricane Sandy

Oh my god, Sandy is hitting Michigan hard, not the brunt of the storm but we have record winds, it's freezing rain and SUPER windy right now, so many of state is w/o power around me (luckily not me).  Schools are cancelled left and right.  This is the most crazy weather i've seen in years

Re: Hurricane Sandy

Only 3 inches of rain (so far), but I have a 20-foot, a couple of 10-foot, and hundreds of smaller branches down.  None of the big one his the house.  Looks like I got lucky- a town a few miles away had a dozen big trees and utility poles dropping all over power lines and cars.  Still have 30mph winds going with sporadic rain.

Just heard that PA has 1.3million and NJ has 2million houses with no power.  I got real lucky.

Good luck to those west and north of me.

Re: Hurricane Sandy

Been watching this on the news today and I can't believe how insane it is. I really wish all of you who are anyway near it keep safe, and I'm hoping no-one else is killed or hurt during it. Some of the images are quite chilling, I can't imagine what it must be like to be there in it.

Re: Hurricane Sandy

That's it.

I'm not posting ANY more pictures.  The only two I posted were FAKE.

Sorry. lol

Re: Hurricane Sandy

lol.  No worries Mistress...it's easy to be taken in by fakes nowadays..

Re: Hurricane Sandy

Some pics-

To see the difference in the river, look for line that looks like a road about the water behind the trees.  In the 2nd pic see how you can barely make it out.
