I'm on the 25th floor, and I've felt my building sway a few times. I can totally do without that.

Every single time I've looked out the window, I see people walking around outside. People are dumbasses. Do they want to get decapitated by a flying street sign?

Otherwise, things are holding steady. I work in insurance/risk assessment, so I've been building storm surge models with NOAA data all afternoon.

It is kind of scary that since I moved to Florda, NJ has gotten 2 of these and I've had 0.

I'm watching the news, looks like the worst in CT is along the coast. The southeast corner of the state got the highest wind speeds and therefore the most fallen trees and power outages, and the southwest corner has the worst flooding. The interior of the state (where I am) is apparently doing ok. I'm guessing (and hoping) that if I don't lose power tonight, I probably won't at all.

My dad has worked on the Parkway for 30 years now. He said he might get called in at 6am today, and he wasn't here when I woke up at 11 so I assume that's what happened. Obviously he's gone in plenty of times like this over the years, but can't help but be concerned. Hope it's all going well for him.

Local news station just reported that the Delaware River (when it crests in Trenton, ~6 miles south of me) will be 5 feet below flood level. And I still have power. I hope this is all I get here...

"HURRICANE SANDY'S DEVASTATION IMMINENT"

Seriously, Weather .com?

Could you POSSIBLY go with a more hysterical, exaggerated, panic-indusing headline?

How about, "HURRICANE SANDY WILL KILL EVERYONE IN ITS' PATH"?

I think that would be about all they could run with that would be worse.

I used to work on the top floor - 40th - at 101 Hudson Street, during summer T-storms we'd all run to the bathroom and watch the water slosh around in the toilets from the building moving so much. ****ing scary ****!

Been seeing some very sad videos today - my two favorite beaches in Bay Head are completely gone - Karge Street and North Street. I really hope my parents house in Point is okay and I really hope the worst is over for us here in Monmouth County, winds have been really steady lately but the gusts are slowing down.

Winds are picking up in NYC. Heard Con Ed. may cut power sooner or later. Just hope not for me.

Clearly the hurricanes are just scared of you.

I'm watching the news and the entire street-facing facade fell off a building in Chelsea (looks like 14th street, but I'm not positive). It looks like as if you're looking at a doll house.

90mph gust recorded on top of World Trade One, and the h2o level down by Wall Street just broke the all-time record recorded in 1821.

Been talking to friends in various parts of the state, but not much from friends in town. Just talked to one who lost his power about 10 minutes ago... He's about 2 miles down the road. Lets hope that stays by him and I don't deal with the same. Wind is pretty damn audible outside though. Would be nice for to hush up a bit.

If conditions are not safe on Wednesday for Trick or Treating, I will sign an Executive Order rescheduling #Halloween.

My hometown, where I lived before moving to West Baltimore, always trick-or-treats tomorrow night. Feel bad for those kids if they miss it.

God. I may be coming back down to bail some of my friends out. How's everyone doing... My home town supposedly is being submerged... by trees and powerlines. Anyone familiar with Old Bridge?
