A Hurricane Is Coming. Oh, Hooray . . .
But Hurricane Sandy is threatening to knock the socks off a fairly large swath of the eastern seaboard, with the effect being worsened by a full moon and consequent high tide. Things are shutting down: Schools, transit, businesses, so on and so forth. People are being warned to make sure there's nothing loose outside, to have food, and to expect power outages--I'm sure those of you who live in areas prone to hurricanes are used to all of this, but it feels slightly surreal here.
Just wanted to say that if anyone else is in the path of Sandy, I hope you (and your homes) make it through the storm okay. Stay safe, everyone.
