    It stayed out to sea mainly running up the sea board. The big problem is going to come in the amount of rain it dumps on New England.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Just think.... 9 months from now there is going to be an increase in the amount of babies delivered on the east coast.

    What more do people have to do when the power is out?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Me neither. Which I why I specifically said "MAY come across as alarmist."

    In other news, the number without power has surged to more than half a million. And the first deaths of the storm have been reported, very likely of people who chose not to follow the evacuation orders.

    I took a cab this AM; near noon.

    Regular yellow cabs and livery Cabs are now operating on a 'zone' (Not meter) system, Posted in taxi.
    IOW, higher rates for driving in bad weather/expeditng evac.
    Some, especially the livery drivers (non-yellow) are no-doubt taking advantage.

    Of course when I got in there was only intermittent rain and -0- wind. Dead Calm and overcast.
    Now some steadier rain and light but increasing wind.

    Cameras at Point Lookout: Sea Conditions at Point Lookout, Long Island, New York USA
    Updated every 15 minutes. Each Can be blown up.
    Really only good in daylight.
    I use the above link sometimes for beach Water temp etc.

    Overall location of above: Point Lookout, Long Island - Long Island New York
    South Shore of Nassau County LI, NY. 10 miles East of JFK, 30 Miles ESE of Manhattan, immediately East of Jones Beach.

    others at that link include http://www.lishore.org/shinnecock/webcam.htm

    Local News showing "the crazy" Surfers at another nearby beach enjoying good waves.

    The South Shore of Long Island (from Coney Island east to Hamptons/Montauk) is 100 miles of Low Lying Beach and Barrier Island.
    Most evacuated for miles inland.
