The comments yesterday on storm preparation ideas from the "seasoned pros" were excellent. Be sure to look back at yesterday's blog to see them.
As for Sandy itself, we expect to see some wild times tomorrow night into Tuesday with a lot of folks roughing it for a while afterwards.

With the weather pattern blocked up, most of the South will be quiet through this weekend. But a storm up north will cause a few problems and a Gulf storm will cause a few big problems.
Gonzalo and Ana are moving on while Trudy's remains may spawn an Atlantic development, definitely some wet weather for South Florida. Otherwise, cooler air will stay near the East Coast while other areas are mostly nice.
A couple of waves of cooler air will push into the South through the middle of next week, but there will not be much rain. The tropics, however, remain active with three storms to deal with.
Some unseasonably cool air is moving into the South and will lead to a cool weekend. Temperatures will moderate gradually next week. Eventually, some moisture from Simon should affect the South.
Parts of the Southeast, mostly Alabama to North Carolina and south to Florida, will see heavy thunderstorms Sunday through Tuesday. Other areas look mostly nice, but starting Tuesday a front will cause some severe storms in the southern Plains states.
A storm moving north from the Carolina coast will bring rain and wind to Virginia and Delmarva through Thursday. An old front sitting around in Florida will keep it active there. Otherwise, it looks mostly quiet until next week.
