the Sandy effect

Good morning.
Yes, I'm going to talk about Sandy also.  Former huricane Sandy that is.
Here in Michigan, we're really feeling the effects this super large storm as it's spreading through the entire Northeast, into the Midwest.
At 6am this morning, you can see the wind bands extending all the way back into Michigan. The wind started picking up yesterday morning, and right now we have wind speeds of 20 -25 with gusts to 40. It's forecast to be like this all day.
The purple area shows we are under a wind advisory
You can also see that clouds cover the entire great lakes down through the Ohio valley.
So for the last 2 days, it's been cold, cloudy, and windy, and this morning, rain/sleet. Yuk!
I should be happy we have power and no flooding.  :-)
So the last couple of days, I've got a lot of indoor cleaning done. I've finished puting all the mo-ho stuff I brought in, into plastic tubs for winter storage.
I took the mo-ho in for an oil change, generator service, and a 14 point inspection. They said plugs, hoses, etc. all looked good.
I also got Craig's homepage switched from igoogle to Netvibes.
I also picked up a new leaf blower/vac. My old one was getting to be a real hassle to keep running. The new one will be nice.  :-)
Though I won't be using it anytime soon, with another day of wind and rain forecast. Looks like I'll be indoors again today. Maybe next weekend.
That's all I've got for now.
