Up here in Hartford it isn’t a big deal yet.

Light drizzle and a gentle breeze.

It’s supposed to pick up around noon, after which we’ll have 55mph gusts until tomorrow noon. We might lose power and perhaps some branches. Maybe. Its a different story on the coast.

So Sandy will knock the rest of the leaves off the trees and I’ll only have to spend one weekend raking instead of the usual four weekends.

Here’s a link to the Syracuse online that contains snippets of articles from many other sources.

I’m not sure about copyright restrictions for WSYR, so I’m posting the link only.

I'm in the middle of MA and my situation is similar. Leaves will come down. I'll get some rain. I live on 6 acres of trees, and I might lose a few. Worst case scenario, I might lose power for two days.

I feel bad for folks on the coast -- but, I used to live on the coast. I made the decision not to.

I live in north central CT. Currently we have some gusts of wind, but nothing major yet. WFSB just reported that a Substation in Bridgeport was compromised by water. Scheduled shutdown by noon affecting approx 35K.
