Ready Or Not

It always seems like I am missing something or never fully prepared for storms but as they say do the best you can.

The yard is cleaned up and batteries are in charging mode just in case they are needed. The storm still is very strong but might not be a cat 1 when it comes ashore. Either way this is one wicked storm with 50-70 mph winds. With all the tress overhanging power lines in my town I expect power to be lost for 3 days plus, hope I am wrong.

I might even jump on 40 meter CW tonight as long as the stealth antenna stays up. As I cleaned my gutters yesterday it almost came down as I hit it with the ladder.

Here are a few links if you want to follow and see the storms live.
Seaside Heights, NJ
Island Beach State Park, in NJ
Monmouth Beach - check out the sand piled up for protection.
Ortley Beach - this is the beach I go to.
Manasquan Inlet
NY radio stations 1010 Wins and 880 WCBS AM.

Stay safe.


  1. Hi Jim, I saw the weather radar today, Sandy is close. Thanks for the links and cams. Take care... 73 Paul

  2. Hi Paul,
    Looks like a few of the cams are now down.
    The ocean during a storm is amazing.
    Regards, Jim
