The hype for Sandy started probably a week or so ago. If this does that, and that does this, and that storm merges with this storm, then this could be the big ONE. We have heard that kind of story many a time. Well this time, apparently this did that, and that did this, and a big ONE looks like it is coming. In fact, the red line next to the last Category One indicator passes right along the northern border of Delaware, or almost directly overhead my gardens. The storm is moving so slowly and is so big, that once it gets started, it will be with us for a few days!
Pictures before the storm:
Hopefully the gardens will still look somewhat like this after the storm.
