I know that plenty of folks here are from southern New England .. just want to say I hope you fare well with Hurricane Sandy. Good luck.

Here's hoping Sandy doesn't undo the fixes from Irene in NH, VT, and ME!

Stay safe all.

Agree on the well wishes to all. Made for quite a sunrise this morning though! Haven't seen the sky on fire like that in a while. Red sky at dawn sailors take warn, is that how that goes?

The news I read this morning said, ".....forecasts show Western Massachusetts should be spared the brunt of the storm..." Hopefully, that's true. After the events of 2011 (a tornado, a microburst, Hurricane Irene and the Oct. 2011 snowstorm), we (in Western Mass) don't need it.

Stay safe, all.

 Re: Hurricane Sandy
And the December 08 ice storm which completely destroyed the canopy in the N Berkshires at 1600-2200' You still can barely walk through those woods even 4 years on.

The ?1998? Derecho left a pretty big, long lasting mess too!

Indeed, Marc. A friend and I were up on Saddleball Ridge (near Mount Greylock) yesterday (Sunday) and the damage from that ice storm is still very evident.

Let's hope that Western Mass. dodges the bullet this time around, SilentCal. :roll:

Living in a Newmarket apartment just steps away from the Lamprey river, and wondering if it will rain bad enough that the bottom floor of my apartment building get flooded. We have four buildings in this complex, and the one I'm in (and the section I'm in) is the lowest point in the complex. Apparently it was flooded out before, according to another tenant I spoke to. So I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best, because if it gets flooded I think they will force us to temporarily evacuate, even though I'm on the third floor.

As for work, I was surprised that they closed my building in Danvers MA. Unfortunately I have a laptop so I'm expected to work from home anyway. :wink:

Hope everyone stays safe.

I work downtown Boston and we got sent home a 10:30. I'm on a lap top as well. Getting kind of windy in Lynn I want to check out the beach later. Stay Safe!

I could be mistaken but I thought I heard Lynn has a mandatory evacuation. Maybe just along the coast?

Getting a tad windy here in Ipswich.

Pretty good gusts going on now. Cold too....usually we get that tropical air when these systems pass through.

Gov lynch said I could go home, so we closed shop at 2pm. I am glad because just in the past 10 min (its 5pm) it has become extremely windy and a wind driven rain. I was a bit anxious about the possibility of driving home in the dark in bad weather with possible lines or trees down! I think its going to be a long night! Here I was thinking that it was going to be a dud of a storm!

I live in lynn also. The ocean put on a pretty decent show earlier. Other than that, some downed limbs and my power went off for an hour. Pretty fun day.

It was voluntary for the people who lived along Lynn Shore Drive I think. I took a ride down to 40 steps in Nahant at about 2:30. The waves and the wind were pretty amazing

Took a short ride along the coast this morning to look around and take some pictures. Waves were very impressive but not much damage anywhere thankfully. Power went out about 2 yesterday at home and not back yet. :( I'm amazed there still so many leaves on the trees.
