NEWSLETTER NOVEMBER 2012
issue of the WEATHERFUN Newsletter
|Jerry is still having computer problems, so I have to do Jerry's Words this month. I want to welcome Dianne email@example.com from Logan, UT to WEATHERFUN.|
The weather news in October was Hurricane Sandy. For the second year in a row a tropical storm has hit the East Coast. Last year it was Irene. Sandy was the first storm that turned west and went straight into New Jersey around Atlantic City. She was a huge storm and was felt from North Carolina to Maine and to the west into Ohio. Not only did she bring wind, rain and water surge, but also snow.
One of my sisters lives further out east on Long Island in Center Moriches. Here house is by a canal that flows into Great South Bay which gets it's water from the Atlantic Ocean. Last year I couldn't get her to leave her house with Irene, but this year she did and it was a good thing. Water came up to her house. If it was a foot higher it would have gotten into her house. As it is, she got 4 foot of water in her basement losing her washer, dryer, oil burner and other items. Thank goodness she has flood insurance. It took over 24 hours for the water to go back to the canal and of course as I write this she still doesn't have any power, which is the case for about 80% of Long Island. I was lucky and never lost power, but as you know I did have a large branch come down that just missed my house.
On a sad note, Lynn from Elkton, MD lost her sister-in-law at the beginning of the month and then her brother 2 weeks later. She is very thankful for everyone's thoughts, prayers and support. Some good news is that her son's wife will be having a baby any day now.
Until next month when I hope Jerry's computer is working, get ready for Winter and that white stuff.
