    I see yer in Pittsburg . You'll probably get some of the rain by Tuesday late . I wasin Norfolk Virginia all day Saturday. The Chesepeak Bay was already showing a lot of real choppy water by 9 AM . The Virginia highway department even closed the Hampton Rhoads tunnel, ( I-64 ) for a good time of yesterday . That left the Monitor Merrimack tunnel , ( I-464 ) and of course the WAYYYYYYYYYY out of de way James River bridge , ( U S 460 ). Either way, the IMBICILES were out on the street LOOSE , I might add all week end long . Hell, they must have found themselves from Washington D C .

    It's just comming into Richmond Virginia now . 12 00 noon ............

    It's been windy and rainy here from the storm that sandy is dancing with now... I'm hoping with all the wet ground and the winds that are coming trees don't get lazy around here. Traffic was already awful this morning... Not looking forward to later.

    I'm about thirty miles north of philly and i lost a pear tree that was right next to the house,luckily it fell away from the house and only cracked a slat on the neighbors fence. Lots of wind so far - no heavy heavy rain yet.

    I'm right here in the Raritan Bay area where Sandy has targeted as one of it's central locations. All types of precautions have been made and we are just waiting this out...Other HAMB'ers in the area are locked tight as well. Hope EVERYONE in her path remains safe.

    Ya every one east stay safe, we got wind advisories here in Eastern Ohio, but my question is.... WHats with the tall ship HMS Bounty? didnt they see the storm warnings? WoW.... I was lookin at the stock exchange, sand bags and gates? who knows. Those gates are gonna hold back alotta water. You would think there would be a better way in our century.

    Stay safe brothers and sisters, hope you all post pics after it passes.

    My neighbor has a big old dead oak that overhangs our home that he refuses to cut down. It's swaying right now, crossing my fingers and having a bourbon.

    Hey northeastern Hambers,if you live on the coast,don't play the hero and wait it out. Storm surge is nothing to play with. Take that from experience not B.S. Stay safe !
