Exclamation Sandy

ABC News said tonight that the Fantasy was really rocking in the storm. The pictures they showed depicted a big mess on board with water out of the pool and stuff scattered around--Angie

I know, I saw the same clip on cruise critic. Kinda scary...But at least everyone seemed to be safe. Will see what happens here. The waves out of Lake Michigan are pretty big...they are closing area's around there. The winds are going up to 50mph sometime tonite...just heard starting at 1am...

So I guess most of us are getting hit with this storm...

later

Hope everyone in the firing line's doing okay. We've had lots of coverage on tv here. If anyone cares to get a map of Australia the size of the hurricane if it were here would stretch from the Sunshine Coast, north of Brisbane in Queensland, to Wilsons Promontory which is South East of Melbourne in Victoria.

Cyclone Yasi, that we had here last year where I live, was about half the size of Sandy but twice as powerful wind speed-wise, so that would give you some idea of the size in relation to Australia. Scary, huh! Fortunately we are nowhere near as heavily populated as those affected by Sandy.

The thought of all of the people in America who will be without power, combined with the coming cold front, is too horrible to think of. Are the homeless people looked after in situations like this?

Take care and prayers to all. I'm now hearing 13 are now confirmed dead which is so sad to hear.

We came through pretty much unscathed. It's still dark outside so can't check the trees on the hill out back, they sheltered us pretty well from the winds, though they were HOWLING last night. We went to bed. the winds are still blowing, but not as strongly. I've got another pressure headache which means the pressure is beginning to rise again, which is a good thing!

Hope everyone else did as well, it was a horrible storm and I've no doubt that Sandy will join Andrew, Hugo, Ike and Katrina on the list of memorable storms.

Hopefully daylight will reveal things aren't as bad as they seem. Yasi crossed at midnight and when I got up at sunrise I was in shock at all of the damage here, and we were a couple of hundred kilometres south of where it crossed. I got all teary watching the footage on tv today of the hurricane, too many memories of last year. Glad you are doing well though.

IT is horrific. My niece lives in NYC, Thank God she went to home to Buffalo for her Grandpa's birthday and got stranded there. I would be worried sick if she were in the city.

Still waiting for the sun to come up here. I've been through a few storms, but they were in the normal area where hurricanes hit. This, following the Derecho is just unbelievable for an area not used to this.

Atlantic City, Ocean City, all devastated. New Jersey, New York....
