Chronicling Hurricane Sandy

Right now, Sandy is strong enough to be fascinating but not too scary. We’re having winds of 29mph from the NW, with gusts up to 35mph here in eastern Harford County. We just went through a little lull but another strong band is beginning. There’s not much to take a pic of here in my suburban development. When a gust hits, you can see the rain falling sideways but I can’t capture it on my camera. Otherwise, it’s just a strong rain storm.

Our potential impact though seems to have intensified from yesterday’s forecast. Sandy may turn west and head over the northern section of the Chesapeake Bay, my locale. We may get 8-12 inches of rain, with wind gusts 70-80mph.

I’d love to head a mile up Rt 40 to catch a glimpse of my favorite marshes along the Otter Point Creek.  But I’m not foolish and will stay off the roads and hunker down at home. Here’s a “before” pic that I took on Saturday, with a small flock of Canada geese choosing a place to land.

  1. Stay safe Neita! We’re now getting 42 mph winds with 56 mph gusts. Now it’s getting scary….and dark outside.

    Love your photo, especially that tall snag on the left. I can imagine a few feathered-friends perch there on a regular basis. Would be an awesome photo op for sure! 🙂

  2. Stay safe out there. We have been listening to the weather reports and it is shocking what is happening in your neck of the woods. We are praying for everyone out east. 🙂
