Two to four hours from landfall
and the winds are picking up. This is the maple in the backyard that serves as the center support for my 88′ EDZ.
So far, recorded gusts from nearby weather stations have topped out at 45 MPH. That may double as Sandy makes landfall. I heard a loud crack before. Turns out a branch in the neighbor’s back yard snapped. Hope that’s not in store for us.
Power has gone out briefly several times already. Marianne has called to inform me she might be stuck overnight at the dialysis clinic where she’s an RN. Seems that some of the local roads have been closed.

Good luck and be safe!
Larry: We hope and pray that you all come through this without lose of life or injury. We can replace our things.
God be with you and your family.
I hope the storm is NOT as bad as forecast!!
Larry: Hunker down with this storm…looks pretty bad viewing from the storm from Queensbury, NY. We’re on the fringe right now…you on the other hand are right in the thick of things. Stay safe!
Thanks, guys! According to Governor Christie and NOAA, Sandy has doubled her speed. maybe she’ll clear out of here more quickly!
