Is it wrong to complain that it was 48 degrees this morning while Frankenstorm is hitting the Northeast?

I thought Tuesday (today) was supposed to be the worst of the storm, but is that still true?

Have at it. 34 here now, not sure what it was when I left for hockey at 5:30, but there was no condensation on my car, thankfully. Might have to think about breaking out the winter coat soon.

They're predicting 10-20 inches of snow to fall today out there. My weather guy said "But this isn't light, fluffy snow. This will be heavy wet stuff in strong winds, which will be plastered to everythign like wet concrete."

In better news, Minnesota kids will be able to go trick or treating in 45-degree weather!

Anyone have anyone affected by Hurricane Sandy? Jess posted on Facebook 10 hours ago that the power was out but her family is fine & they have a generator.

I haven't been in touch with my parents but I assume they have no power, and I know cell service is spotty.

Work-wise, we have many sites with issues but no injuries or anything that I know of.

In Minnesota they're predicting that?

Guess it's time to get the winter mindset in place.

No, sorry, in West Virginia and other East Coast places.

Thankfully not like the East Coast but it's pretty windy in Chicago today. They're keeping a close eye on the lake b/c they're expecting the Sandy winds to make the water go over Lake Shore Drive and then they'll have to close it.

While I am not endorsing beating your kid with an electrical cord, some of the people against her sound like idiots.

"Someone should take a giant cable cord and hit her. This is just out right wrong. If she does not want her child on FB, she should have just talked to him and explain why she don't want him on FB. This is so crazy. Love our children they're our future."

Yes. Its so simple. Just explain to him why you don't want him on facebook and he'll automatically fall in line. Kids never disobey their parents. All they need is a good explanation.

I haven't read the comments yet, but she's 62. How on earth does she have a son who's a minor?

Kid just texted me to remind me she had been swimmer of the year at summer camp so all would be good.

Great.

AT least she has a sense of humor about it all!:)

They did say on the news this morning that East Coasteres were being asked to text rather than make phone calls, to relieve the demands on cell service.

By having a kid when she was older than 44.
