    IMO, this increased certainty means the Mayor of NYC and other officials up and down the coast will call for Mandatory Evacuations from low lying areas this evening.
    Closing Mass and Public Transit at some point Sunday.
    Should be interesting to see if anyone shows for Monday's NYSE/Stock Market opening.
    Though NOAA's wind model shows a very slight move South.




    Millibars/Pressure even more serious at 958 (from 969 yesterday) and may fall to 949 pre-landfall.

    The media tries to make everything a panic.
    They are talking 40 mph winds. That is not OMG! OMG! like they make it to be. Just a rainy, windy day and little more. The only thing that'd mean around here is the sailboats don't go out.

    The more important thing about this storm, is how do you fix coffee without any power for days...we can use a grill for foodstuffs, but my non-electric percolator won't work on candle power.

    Would you rather people not prepare for the worst? Isn't that the British way?

    Yeh you can still get ready but you dont have to run around like a headless chicken. Keep calm and carry on

    my brother lives in Daytona Fl. and he commented that the storm was a lot worse then predicted when it hit him...he lives on the beach(in a house)
    He has told all his friends who live on the East coast to not take this storm lightly.....that it was a whooper...so those living in the wake of the storm...prepare! DH has his family in NJ on the shore in a town beloew sea level...his mom refuses to leave her home...she is 78 years old and his brother cant force her out...being her town is below sea level right off the ocean and connect to the bay...makes it such that the water will rise with all indications to her floor in her house....her house is above the ground by about 4 feet or so....

    So those that are there...don't wait to batten down the hatches and stay safe!

    Im hoping that the worst of it wont hit the NH seacoast but I think we will probably lose power!

    The worst won't hit NH. it looks Mild compared to NY/NJ, though you don't want to be on the beach.
    millibars 951 as of 8 AM EST.
    Can't believe Bloomberg hasn't yet called for Evacs as he did last year. This is Worse barring a miraculous turn.
    Gov Christie did yesterday.
    Water is going to be PILING up in NY Harbor, LI Sound, etc. Winds higher.
