Given how wrong the weather forecasters generally are (particularly when they play CYA in predicting a HUGE storm), I'm wondering about Sandy.

I'm not. I'm recalling how spot on they were about the blizzard of 1996, starting a full week out. That was the storm in which it started snowing on Sunday morning, and my office was open only one day the following week.

I'm on high ground, so my only concern is loss of power. Our lines are underground, so I'm hopeful that we'll have a repeat of the results of the derecho, when my power just flickered once at the height of the storm, while friends were without power for days.

The uncertainty of the timing is also a nuisance for me. I'm hosting a dinner party Sunday evening, and I have a doctor's appointment downtown Monday morning. I got caught driving in a tropical storm once, and I'm not about to have people risk that, even for one of my faboo meals.
