Well I live in NJ about 60 miles NW of NYC, the high winds are forecast to be 40 mph tomorrow, gust to 50.
Shouldn't bee too bad here no snow, lots of rain. The folks on the coast and areas of NJ prone to flooding are going to be hurting.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
ok, so I'm pretty sure I just heard that NYC closed the tunnels... this is an ominous development. ... Couple that with no public transit, and that's 8-10 million people essentially stranded for at least a little while.
People hear "Cat 1" and get complacent, but it's the storm surge that matters. Not the wind. ... NYC appears to be getting very lucky again. Just like with Earl. ... But if it drifts just a bit more north, it's gonna be a direct hit to Manhattan... with the surge as high as it is already, this thing is gonna rape the ports.
At the very least, New Jersey has a significant amount of refinery infrastructure that has to be shut down, and likely heavily damaged. ... Supply is already tight, and this will hurt.
The storm comes as low inventories of refined products, especially distillates and heating oil, have stirred concerns of potential price spikes during the winter heating season.
The precautionary refinery closures are more widespread than during Hurricane Irene in August 2011, when only Bayway - nicknamed the "gasoline machine" because of its key role supplying motor fuel to the New York City area - was completely shut.
While refiners escaped any serious damage during that hurricane, many fear Sandy's massive storm surge - forecast to be as high as 11 feet - could breach plant defenses and cause damaging flooding, which can sometimes take weeks to repair. Abrupt power outages can also damage refinery equipment.
