No name with a U ???All joking aside, they are calling this a major storm. Combining Sandy with a cold front and coming
in off the east coast. If you have generators, I would suggest filling some gas cans. And be sure
you have some canned food too.
We got lucky here - school closed 3 hours early yesterday and all day today as school buses
can't run if the winds are to be above 35 mph.
Stay safe everyone!
As for the name, they alternate. The next named storm would be Tony, followed by Valerie and then William.
I don't know - it's been pretty warm, so I wouldn't count on it.They didn't use Q, U, X, Y or Z. I forget how they change the naming when they get past W.
Okay, after Wilma in 2005, they went to Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon and Zeta.
I would be happy if this was the last named storm to threaten the FL coast
It wasn't quite that windy out this way, but it did Snow for the first time this year..Had 50-60 MPH winds here, storm surge off lake Erie closed down sections of I-90 and also got about 4 inches of rain since yesterday. Didn't go in to work today either, all the schools had no power... still about 150,000 in the area without.
Glad your made it through ok Joe. Drink a pumpkin ale for me it'll be alright. :tongue:I just got the power back about an hour and a half ago. A tree came down up the street and took all the lines down!
A bit of a mess to clean up but nothing like what the NYC/ Jersey area got hit with! Hope everyone is safe and sound!
Safe travels Darren. I hope your back by Thanksgiving for the meet.Glad to hear you are fine up there Joe, I will be on a plane tomorrow to Philly for some work in jersey (had a feeling I would be ). Was very windy here as well .
