I believe we’re going to lose power. In my mind it’s only really a question of when. Our neighborhood doesn't do well in storms. Almost any storm worth its alert results in some sort of power outage for us.
This morning I asked Mama Wordbones when she thought we’d lose it.
“I don’t know but you’d better bring the coolers up from the basement today.”
That’s just another one of the things we’re doing for Frankenstorm. Yesterday we secured the outdoor furniture and cleared off the deck. I weighted down anything that had the potential to become airborne.
We will begin to feel Frankenstorms footsteps today. According to last nights posting by Foots Forecast Central Maryland team, Hurricane Sandy “will be approaching from the southeast, cloudy skies with rain mainly in the afternoon with highs around 60 with northeast winds 15 to 20 mph with gust up to 30 mph. Sunday night rain with north winds 20 to 25 mph with gust up to 40 mph.”
The meteorological monster is now expected to arrive on Tuesday.
It’s still pretty calm here at WSw. The current temperature is 55 degrees with 64% humidity. The relative pressure is currently 29.51 inHg but it has been steadily dropping since Friday. Winds have begun to register at 2 mph.
