So far, recorded gusts from nearby weather stations have topped out at 45 MPH. That may double as Sandy makes landfall. I heard a loud crack before. Turns out a branch in the neighbor's back yard snapped. Hope that's not in store for us.
Power has gone out briefly several times already. Marianne has called to inform me she might be stuck overnight at the dialysis clinic where she's an RN. Seems that some of the local roads have been closed.
