Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?

Tempest.

Good to finally hear from you. I was hoping you would post soon as I know you were pretty much in the bulls eye of the storm. Thank goodness your family is ok. A bonus is the boat being ok also.

I know you will have good stories when we raft up with you this year when we travel north next summer

Stay well and good luck

Dave

Wandering Star...you are in Northport or Mt Siani. Sorry for your damage, but glad she came through it better than lots of others,

Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?

I heard a scary comment from a meteorologist yesterday, something to the effect many houses on the ocean will not be there in the next ten years or so. And it seems to be a consensus that these "freak storms" are not freakish anymore and they will become more common.

Dave Nye (the science guy) said he expects to see more of these north Atlantic hurricanes in the near future. Imagine the cost of making the entire Atlantic coast hurricane ready.

Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?

I fail to see what is so "freak" about this Storm. We've had many storms hit the East Coast, including New England. I believe one brushes every 5 years and plows right through every 20 years. The hurricane of '38 is still considered the deadliest, having killed about 700 people. Did NYC think it was immune?

I have complete passion for those affected. I just find it odd that so many think this was a trend of some kind. A new spot on the East Coast pulls the short straw all the time.

I dunno, in this part of the country we had Irene last year, and Sandy exactly 13 months later. Not sure I recall a precedent here for two near-direct hits in consecutive years.

In a few years we'll have a better idea whether this is the start of a trend. Extrapolating weather observations to climate conclusions is always risky.

I agree, climate change requires a generation to measure, not a couple of random years.

My intuition might suggest the tracks are a bit more westerly, but tropical systems have been a threat out here routinely.
