Despite the hurricane warning I did wonder whether some idiot surfer, unaware of his limits, would go out and try to ride the 6-10 foot high waves we are getting in Rockaway right now, so I couldn't resist a sneaky peek from a very safe distance via the surfline beach cam.
Here's how it looks at 8am, 4 hours before the predicted height of the storm and thankfully there are no surfers, but as you can see there are a couple of intrepid spectators.
|Hurricane Sandy comes to Rockaway. 8am, Monday October 29th.|
It's a fairly boring looking rainy day on the upper east side. I'm using the tree across the street as a barometer for how windy it is and the leaves don't even look to be moving. The calm before the storm perhaps. My friend just emailed to tell me that the gym at 91st and 3rd IS open and she is heading there now. I think I'll stick with working out at home, she's just across the street from that gym, but I am significantly further and have no wish to be caught outside when the weather turns. I don't need to get hit with any flying debris.
