The latest hurricane coming is Sandy and according to most news reports, it could be a monster when it hits U.S. coast and it will probably grow into a “Frankenstorm” that may become the worst to hit the U.S. Northeast in 100 years if current forecasts are correct.
Listening to the newscasters here in Florida one would think that this Hurricane was about to knock us over and plow away with us. I mean the Northeast of the US is where the most impact will be. Also, it is right now probably doing some serious damage over the Bahamas, but do they tell us about it? Not really all we hear is about these "serious" rains and the eroding beach.
Right now there is a shopping frenzy going on in all supermarkets and this is the best time for stores like Home Depot. Most of their supplies will be sold if not sold out already. Yes, no wood is left. No more bottled water in the stores and you're lucky if you find a spot to park your car at the grocery store.
Panic has settled in. When we live in Chicago, unless the news was worth reporting it was not news. Here a minor wind storm occupies the news 24/7 and it's all about Florida and the damage some wind could do, but has not done as yet!
Yes, it was windy yesterday. The skies were black and yes it rained. There is damage happening in other parts, but all we hear on the news is about the Florida Beaches eroding.....
Pretty much sums up what's happening here right now. My thoughts are with our friends in the Bahamas and all the others that have been hurt by Sandy. Hope my sisters and everyone in the North East remain safe. Hurricane season lasts 6 months and
Hurricane Irene...the storm was huge news. In fact, the Weather Channel reported something they haven't seen in years. Viewers...
