    For those unfamiliar with the third link just showing the water vapor – here’s the mainpage hurricane site:

    Just click on anything not Sandy herself to pull up the IR – click on Sandy herself to pull up all sorts of stuff. Surge, rainfall, winds etc should be at the top.

    This next is actually out of Norman OK, usually “active” during tornado season but it’s manned right now, click for “Reports” although storm surges aren’t something normally measured:

    I’m “working” just now so here’s a good link:

    Actually, not bad at all here now. I think we’re past the worst of it. Unbelievable that we didn’t lose power.

    Just what, exactly, are you suggesting will happen at 0230?

    Yes, the hardtack’s dry, the beer’s cold.

    They’ve done something here. I now believe that the power in Wellfleet is INVINCIBLE.

    All OK here. Wellfleet was spared. The lovely Nina is in New York, staying with friends (our house is still unlivable due to construction work). Park Slope being on high ground, it was spared the flooding and power outages. (Trees down though, I expect.)
