Our plan “A” had us moving down to Jersey City yesterday to spend a few days checking out New York City but as Sandy advances we all agree that “discretion was the better part of valour” and we will sit here outside Boston and let the storm roll through. Based on today’s forecast it looks like so far, we are calling it right. While yesterday’s map had us just on the edge of all the action, today’s has it missing us all together. Let’s hope it stays that way.
Actually the locals in the know don’t seem to be too worried about the rain or the wind, what they are concerned about is the storm surge from the Atlantic that could bring in ocean waves of up to four feet that will cause major flooding. We should be OK there too.
In the interim, as an additional bonus, we are seeing a lot more of this area, and what a neat area it is.
The local weather forecast says we will have another good exploring day today before we get into a couple of days of heavy rain.
We are ready for a couple of good rain days, our e readers are loaded, we have lots to eat and drink and lots of fuel for the generator.
Wish us well.
