    Part of the Atlantic City boardwalk has been washed away already.

    I'm NE of Washington DC and the wind is horrific. The trees down around the pool are swaying like crazy.
    My job requires me to be a juggler, but that does not mean that I enjoy working with clowns.

    The NJ news is showing different shots of flooding around the state. Judging by one of them from Hackensack it looks like the Ice House is probably surrounded by water right now. Not surprising.

    And it's one tree down, over the fence and into the pool. Kind of makes me glad I'm on the top floor.

    FSUers, and your friends and family...please stay safe. I've been watching CNN and it really looks terrible out there. Here in Ontario we are merely expecting high winds and rain, so not nearly as badly off although we have battened down the hatches so to speak.

    As far as I know, they still haven't rescured the two missing crew member from the Bounty............feeling sick for them, their families, and remaining crew members.

High tide at our place on the bay was 12:30 pm and so far, there aren't any flooding issues. It will depend on whether Assateague washes over at midnight since high tide comes again at 12:30 am. It is windy, but it is coming from the north, not the east. It is supposed to swirl around and come from the west later, which is really good because we will be buffered. Keeping my fingers crossed.
    Isn't Assateague where the little ponies live? (Vague memories since I've not been there since the mid '80's.) I hope the storm surge does not wash them (or any people, of course) away!

    I haven't been there since I was a little girl. We've had a few power blinks. Keeping my fingers crossed. Daughter and fiancé are safe in their condo. My son is home and I insisted his girlfriend come here. She lives alone, and I didn't want her to be by herself. Happily, she came here! Still worrying about my brother, he lives in Brielle, near the water. He insists that, because they are up on a hill, they will be fine. I hope he's right!

    Yes, there are ponies on the MD and VA sides of Assateague. They swim well, every July there's the pony swim from Assateague to Chincoteague across the bay. Maybe they'll go there.

    The Mayor of Jersey City is holding a press conference. Jersey City officials haven't ever seen the water levels this high and the storm still hasn't made landfall.

    I hope everyone on the east coast stays safe! I lived in NJ for 10 years as a kid and I've never experienced anything like this. Still have relatives there, I hope they'll be okay!

    Also, I totally just filled up a giant Sparklett's jug with water, from the reminder of natural disasters. I figure in an earthquake, that's the only thing you can really prepare for if one has a tiny apartment...

    That's scary.

    Read that 70% of the 9,500 residents of Brigantine, NJ ignored the mandatory evacuation order and its really bad there right now. Hope this doesn't turn into some catastrophic loss of life event for those that didn't leave the coast.

    Tree # 2 down - glad I'm too high up to worry about branches coming through the window.

    I hope this doesn't turn into some catastrophic loss of life event for those who have to go in and rescue them.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for the safety of all our FSUers, and everyone else.

    People were apparently thinking, well Irene wasn't bad, how could Sandy be worse? WRONG. If I were on an island where the way out could be compromised, I think I would get out first.

    Hope everyone is safe.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.
