Good Luck. We’re All Counting On You.

Here's the latest NASA photo of Hurricane Sandy taken today at around noon on the east coast. You can view the full size here (it's huge). The storm itself is over 900 miles wide.

Here's a timelapse video of Sandy taken yesterday

And finally here's President Obama's remarks on the storm from today at 12:45 est

If aren't near a television you can watch a live stream of The Weather Channel here.

Sandy is currently on track to make landfall sometime in the next 2 to 3 hours, bringing a storm surge of 6 or more feet, as much or more than a foot of rain in some locations, and in the Appalachians it will bring between 1 to 3 feet of snow with whiteout conditions. The Great Lakes are also expected to see a signification rise in water level.

In other words -- ooga booga!

If you or someone you know is in the path of the storm, stay safe!

    Right in the middle of the great lakes here. It’s just a little bit worrisome.

    Never fear… Rmoney is dispatching his campaign bus (he won’t be on it, but still…) to affected areas even as we speak. It will be simply loaded with canned goods gathered from his supporters. Never mind that this will create logistical problems for responders and divert needed resources. Never mind that cash donations is what the Red Cross wants and needs. No… expired canned asparagus to the rescue!
