Waiting for Hurricane Sandy


That vortex off North Carolina is Hurricane Sandy, and it is heading right for us.  It should make landfall tomorrow, perhaps in Southern New Jersey, perhaps closer to us (the location of the landfall of the eye doesn't matter much -- the wind field has a radius of 300 miles!)   It could really mess things up  --- lots of water, lots of wind, and it will collide with a cold front moving in from the west.  Yuck.   There is a good chance we will lose power.  I have pulled out my trusty Heathkit HW-8 and my solar-charged gel cell battery, so I am ready to go.  Good luck to all those in the storm's path.

  1. good luck to you, your family and everyone in the path of Sandy. we are as ready as we can be here in Cape May NJ. Finally broke down and bought a generator since we always lose power. Gel Cels are charged and ready to go.

    Thanks, Shawn N3ZHP
