    Driving ban in Delaware since 5:00am this morning.

    No work. Waiting it out at home.

    Landfall time has been bumped earlier. 5-6:00pm time frame.

    Hope that means it speeds through the area much faster than predicted.

    Wind is really picking up here.

    Yeah that is what I have heard except it is not going to speed through the area. It is going to be a slow mover with DC, No VA, and PA getting drenched.

    I wrote it before. Media panic-hype to get ratings up. In nearly all areas just a cold, windy rainy day. A typical ice storm up that way like causes more damage and outages.

    WE MUST KEEP UP WITH THE PARTISAN IMPLICATIONS!

    People named Sandy more likely to give to Obama
    By Chris Wilson, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 1 hr 20 mins ago

    Is the National Hurricane Center secretly a puppet of the Obama administration?

    People named Sandy are considerably more likely to have donated to President Obama than to Mitt Romney or another Republican primary candidate this year, according to a recent Yahoo News analysis of FEC records. Of the 353 Sandys who gave at least $200 this cycle, 73 percent gave to Obama. The amount they gave is slightly more equitable, but still favors the president: $134,936 to Obama, $101,172 to Romney et al.

    A casual survey of recent notable storms turns up an insidious pattern. People named Irene also gave to Obama about three times as often, as did Katrina (80 percent), Rita (69 percent), Frances (70 percent) and Andrew (54 percent).

    Tropical Storm Bret, which last struck in 2011, and Tropical Storm Van, which is in next year's lineup, are the two most Republican storms.

    It hasn't hit yet. Do you even know what you're talking about?
