We are battening down the hatches and bracing ourselves for the arrival of Frankenstorm Sandy! She is slated to hit the Jersey coast sometime tomorrow evening but the impact of the wind and rain are going to be felt in our neck-of-the-woods much earlier in the day. There are several rivers and creeks here which flood out roads with storms of much less intensity, so schools, churches, places of business are closed for tomorrow. Wind gust of 70 miles per hour are expected with Sandy and power outages are expected for our area. Store shelves which normally house bread, water and milk were completely bare as of yesterday. Gas stations are reporting that they are out of gas and it appears that we may not see the sun or blue sky until possibly Friday.
For everyone who will be affected by Sandy please stay safe and God bless all of us!
