Afphys would love to talk meteorology with you.

Me? It’s been too long since I graduated and sadly have forgotten some of the more pertinent factors affecting storms like this.

All I know is that although we live in an area that tends to get nothing worse than snow (Central NY), I am ready for it and will be spending my off the computer time cleaning and doing laundry so if we DO lose power, I’m not stuck for clean clothes or a warm shower.

Good plan. I think winds won't do a whole lot of major damage...apart from downed trees and limbs on power lines and homes. Won't see a whole lot of structural damage due strictly to winds. But...minor damage will add up to a lot due to shear size of area impacted.

Power and surge are the issues. Already a report out on economic impacts - $30-40 Billion in economic loss. I always think that part is overblown. It's like people boycotting gas pumps on "Tuesday." Doesn't do any good because people just buy their gas on Monday or Wednesday....
