THE ‘OTHER SIDE’ OF SANDY NOT SEEN ON TV OR IN NEWSPAPERS. Sandy also struck CUBA, HAITI AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC Images that you will not see in the newspapers or on TV. There are now many more homeless people in Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic suffering from the ravages of hurricane Sandy passing through their respective nations, prior to the hurricane also pummeling the east coast of the United States. In solidarity with all people, in light of the loss of their homes and loved ones, we must also speak out for them. Pain and suffering does not care about borders and true compassion has no flag to wave. Our hearts are with all who are impacted by this international tragedy. Please become more informed and support the efforts of groups attempting to help lives everywhere, who know no borders.

Currently cooped up in my hotel room, waiting for Hurricane Sandy.. so I wrote a song about it. lolz.
tryna stay dry
i just wanna explore
but instead i’m bored
out of my mind
i just hope you understand
you have ruined all of my plans
why you messin with me
come on and let me be
you stand in the way
& i don’t have a say
as i watch you play
in skies of grey
EVERYTHING SHE SINGS IS GOLD.

Hi. So, I was currently reading up some things about how bad the storm may get. For those that don’t keep up with the news or are curious to know why it can get bad, here’s a few things:
1.) Extratropical Hurricane
- Unlike tropical storms that get their power from warm waters, extratropical storms will be driven by temperature contrasts.
2.) Early Winter Storm & Arctic Air Coming from the North
- While Sandy transitions to being an extratropical storm, there is also the expected wintry system that will come from the West. This comes just about the time in where this may turn into a superstorm. Not only that, it’s also expected that the air from the North may be taken in by Sandy, further strengthening the winter storm conditions that might be there in the storm’s path.
3.) High Tides
- To further complicate things: a full moon will be out, bringing the tides to be higher. This will make it easier for the storm’s powerful winds to push water into low-lying areas. & that’s on top of the threat of several inches of rain.
4.) Snow/Wind Combo Increases Risk for Power Outages
- Two possibilities that power outages will happen. One, hurricane-force winds may send tree branches into power lines, or even topple entire trees & poles. Two, those left standing may succumb to the weigh of snow & fall after.
So yeah, just some things that I’ve read up on the storm. I don’t mean to scare people but, I think knowing what is to come won’t hurt anyone. o __o)b
