Can we wait and see what Sandy's gonna do before we scare the heck out of people. Being prepared is good but causing unneeded anxiety ain't.

Fear mongering is a tried and true method of getting people to watch the news, in this case we have no idea which direction this storm will take much less its intensity when it might get here.If we were on the coast thats one thing, here in the sticks is all together different.

I hope that this storm wiii not affect Virginia as predicted. I have a lot of family and friends there. It never hurts to be prepared in case it does come. It is a scary thought. We have had problems here in the state in which I live now,(fires). And a husband and wife died in their home because they would not leave. It is better to be safe than sorry. Most material things can be replaced, but a life can not be. Bless you all.

This, and 29 sucks di(c)k anyway, it's sad when you have to go to other locations to get the "real" weather. Why don't you people just close down, you suck !!
