There was no over hyping or overestimating Hurricane Sandy. This thing is a beast. A lot of Atlantic City's boardwalk is gone, Ocean City's piers are gone and there is already flooding everywhere. The worst is still 6-12 hours away too.

Right now Silver Spring MD (where I"m currently at) is pretty crazy. Cold, very very rainy and very very windy. People who didn't remove things off their balconies are going to have to scour the streets to find them.

Somehow my internet is still holding out though. I don't expect that to last much longer. 

In some good news, I have a couple party packs of pizza rolls, beer to last me a week and enough liberal propaganda to keep me occupied for hours! (haha kidding on the last one). Be glad you're away from this storm though! I'll put a picture on here later if I can take a good one.

Please keep us posted. This may be an historic storm.

I just spoke to my friend in Ocean City, MD and she said it is very windy right now, the pier is gone and the boardwalk is underwater.

In case you haven't seen this floating around the internet. Sandy might be a bitch but there are some people out there who are tougher than her. #ussoldiers

Matt, while I'm very glad to hear you're surviving Sandy, that's not exactly what I was wondering.  What I've been wondering is how you're coping with Obama's freefall in the polls and the massive momentum shift in Romney's favor?!  Tongue
If it matters, seek the truth.

Haha! Let's revisit this "massive momentum shift" on November 7th. How long until someone tries to get a political advantage from this storm though. 10 seconds? 30 seconds? a FULL minute? haha, that'll be the worst part of a major event during election season

Sorry to point it out, but that photo of the three soldiers wasn't taken during Hurricane Sandy :(

But there are other photos of the guard at the Tomb that WERE taken during Sandy.
