    I was looking online of photos showing flooding already in parts of Queens and Manhattan, and read that the Hudson may surge up to 11 feet. This storm is a monster that is sure to devastate the lives of many people.

    Many of us live on the outskirts of this giant storm's path (I live in Cambridge), but some of us live right in the storm's path or have friends and family in the storm's path. I thought a thread where people could post about this storm would be appropriate -- their experiences, their best wishes for others, their prayers.

    I consider myself an atheist, as many of you know, but in times of real trouble I always say a prayer to God. While the likelihood of God is remote in my view, I know there have been men and women far smarter than me who believe in God, so dear God let this storm pass over us quietly without taking lives and homes. Amen.

    Doesn't hurt Patters to say a prayer -

    it's always possible there might be some good notes on you in the heaven database.

    Be careful Patters, they've planted trees all over Cambridge, God Willing you will avoid falling branches.

    Ding Dongs use the trees for looking in bedroom windows, they climb up then hide in the brances and watch people undress.

    Bless Thee

    Well in NW Jersey we are getting winds of ~40 mph gusts 50-60, highest winds for the next 4 hrs getting up to the 45 mph, lost power for 5 minutes.

    Reports are unconfirmed that the NY Stock Exchange floor is flooded 3-4 feet.

    If so, and if major trading grinds to a halt for a week (low estimate)... might we call Sandy somewhat Biblical?

    I have no idea if that report is true, and I will try to check on it in the morning.

    But I'm not sure if I even do hope it's not true.

    Might be a nice excuse to reset. Wash the system. Start anew.

    But Romney won't ever have that. Wall St. must be maintained in its current incarnation at all costs. About as likely as Gollum tossing the ring away.

    In our neighborhood 35 miles west of Boston, Sandy delivered a sloppy wet blow job. :singing:

    Whatever that means.

    Why don't you start a thread and tell the forum what Hamar would do from the Oval Office after next week.

    OK, Letterman has no audience, and CBS obviously said "do the show anyway." ... He's got Biff Henderson out on the street providing the Late Night coverage. ... But mostly, I feel bad for this new band on his show that just came out to no applause. Strangest night in a long time.

    dunkin was open despite a 45 minute wait. Gas heat so warm showers and can cook on the stove. Luckily no damage at home or office. Dodged a bullet....no telling how long power will be out. We'll be grilling our entire freezer tonight before it goes bad

    Power has been out at home for 24hrs now, may be a week before it is restored. Will post pics of downed trees when CPU has power.

    Can't complain we have water and we can cook.

    A week without power? Wow. As bad as it was around here a year ago, although I am in a commercial area so I had it back after 3-4 days.

    Stay safe (and warm).

    Just asking ... where is the outcry over the plight of the homeless due to Sandy?

    Is it a quiet subject because it is not political red meat?

    Does anyone remember this from the old days.
    This is now a current scene in NY due to dead cell phones.
