Good luck with the storm. I am south of you in MD and we are getting ready as well.

If the power goes out I will be cooking all of my meals in the wood fired oven  ;D

Besides the inconvenience of no power, that doesnt sounds too bad!...lol I dont have a WFO, so I will be doing my cooking on a grill. :( I think I know of someone who might know where I can get a WFO in the near future though  ;)

Too Funny. I always keep a couple extra of the Neapolitan WFO at my house. So if someone needs one at the last minute, lets say power is out for a while, they can just drive up and I load one in their car  :-D

Good luck with the storm.

P.S. you may want to write down my address before the power goes out :)

Should fit on the back seat!  That would definitely weight down your car so it doesn't take off with the high winds :-D

Good luck with the storm.

Hey guys, Im still in Toms River NJ and hunkering down for now. No mandatory evacuation here (yet).  But I have seen pictures that are pretty bad and Sandy is still 400+ miles away! Not good.

Chaze215, I hate to be the one to say it but remember katrina? They didnt issue mandatory evacuations till it was too late. If you got family or friends in safer locations i would advise you to take a vacation.

NJ isn't below sea level, nor does it have levees (or the incompetent engineers that built them).

Chaz, right now, the storm is projected to touch down near Atlantic City, with 80 mph winds, but you're a bit North of that, which should drop your wind speeds a tiny bit.  How close are you to water?  If you're not on high-ish ground, then you might want to evacuate, although the area is shaping up to see less precipitation then it did during Irene.  If you saw 6" during Irene, you might see 4" for Sandy.

As far as the storm surge goes.... the East section of Tom's River has a 10% chance of hitting 10 feet and a 50% chance of hitting 5 feet. Like I said, if you not at any kind of elevation, I'd hit the road.

One other thing to consider is that the storm is supposed to take a turn, and that turns can be a bit trickier to predict than straight courses. It could end up a bit north of the  current target (bad for you) or south (better for you). They're also predicting a slight strengthening (75 mph now, but 80 by landfall), but that could, imo, change as well.

A lot can happen between tonight and tomorrow morning, and, if things take a turn for the worse, there should still be plenty of time for you to evacuate.  On Friday, Toms River was pretty much in the predicted path's crosshairs, but, as I said, the target is now AC. It also seems to be a tiny bit weaker than they were predicting. Hopefully it will end up being even weaker than they're expecting by the time it reaches land.

Sandy is my wifes mothers name that passed away a few years ago and her sister lives near the shore in NJ. We told her she could come here but you know how people are, there like captains that want to go down with the ship.  ::)

Thanks for the update and concern Scott. My Dad is staying with us and my Mom went into work (medical/essential personel) since they had a mandatory evacuation by 6pm last night. The winds and rain are starting to pick up this am and isnt supposed to get bad around here til 8pm-12am. I am about 1-2 miles from the bay and the biggest surge is not supposed to be until late tonight and tomorrow. We shall see. Thanks again all!

The creek is near ready to over flow the bank. There's a great blue heron in the back yard.

Steve, I suggest you move to higher ground.  The water is only beginning to rise, and there is a lot more rain to come.

Way too soon to leave yet. The water is still in the creek and I still have power.
