Lost juice here in the NYC Jersey 'Burbs around 9 EST.  Transformers just started kersploding, one every 5 minutes or so, around the neighborhood.  Glad I'm about 15 miles inland, though.  The reports coming in from manhattan & the shoreline are just insane.

Keep safe. I'm about to bring the phone into the bathroom with me so if I need my flashlight app I'm ready. Not that I usually don't bring it in there anyway... Still just flickering here. The wind died down to some degree for a bit, but just fired up again. Supposedly law Erie is angry this evening spewing water everywhere.

Just got power back here. My mom was okay last I talked to her, her power held out longer than mine, I think.

Only some superficial water damage. We'll see how long we have power (not uncommon for it to flick off for another hour at a time as they fix things, here), but optimistic that it's "a while".

One of our data centers for work is offline, but fortunately it's the one hosting our test environments. Plus our servers in the Battery Park building in NYC are obviously offline. Pretty manageable impact all around, and I'm thinking the 3rd floor is high enough that there shouldn't be any damage, just a question of when we'd be able to access again. Biggest thing is going to be the sites I visit in NJ, hopefully they weren't far enough south to take a pounding but the fact that a data center is out is worrying.

We have power as of tonight, but no internet, phone or cable.

Still all kinds of grateful, though.

Still no juice at home today, but was able to get to work in Times Square.  Didn't notice any damage here at all.  Considering starting new life as muppet-themed street performer so I don't have to return to Jersey! Will post update if I can steal an XXL Elmo costume!

EXTENDED FORECAST DISCUSSION
NWS HYDROMETEOROLOGICAL PREDICTION CENTER COLLEGE PARK MD
322 PM EDT THU NOV 01 2012

VALID 12Z SUN NOV 04 2012 - 12Z THU NOV 08 2012

...NOR'EASTER POSSIBLE FOR MID-ATLANTIC/NEW ENGLAND STATES BY
ELECTION DAY INTO NEXT THURSDAY...

GENERAL FLOW PATTERN/MODEL PREFERENCE
=====================================
A DEEP CYCLONE DROPPING DOWN THE WEST COAST OF CANADA WILL HELP
AMPLIFY A MID-UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OVER THE WRN US AND MAINTAIN A
NEGATIVELY-TILTED TROUGH FROM THE GREAT LAKES INTO THE
APPALACHIANS AND SERN US.  THE GUIDANCE AGREES ON THESE IDEA.
PRELIM HPC MEDIUM RANGE SURFACE PRESSURES/FRONTS AND 500 MB PROGS
WERE PRIMARILY DERIVED FROM A BLEND OF THE 00 UTC ECMWF/UKMET AND
GFS/ECMWF ENSEMBLE MEANS THROUGH TUESDAY BEFORE SWITCHING TO A
BLEND OF THE 00 UTC ECMWF WITH 00 UTC GFS/ECMWF ENSEMBLES
THEREAFTER.  THAT SOLUTION MAINTAINED REASONABLE CONTINUITY AND
UTILIZED GUIDANCE THAT OFFERED MAX SOLUTION CLUSTERING.

HPC FINAL PROGS THOUGH HAVE BEEN MANUALLY ADJUSTED TO ACCOUNT FOR
12 UTC MODEL TRENDS TOWARD DIGGING ADDITIONAL REINFORCING ENERGY
INTO AN AMPLIFYING BASE OF THE MID-UPPER LEVEL TROUGH INTO THE
SERN US TUE...OPENING THE DOOR MORE TO LINK DEEPER COASTAL LOW
EMPHASIS TO TRAILING ENERGY EMERGENCE OFF THE EASY COAST MORE INTO
WED/THU.  THIS TREND SEEMS REASONABLE CONSIDERING UPSTREAM RIDGE
AMPLITUDE.

WEATHER IMPACTS
===============
AS A DEEP CYCLONE MOVES DOWN THE WEST COAST OF CANADA...PACIFIC
MOISTURE FEEDS INTO THE NORTHWEST WHICH ALLOWS FOR SKIRMISHES OF
RAINS/HIGH ELEVATION SNOWS THROUGH MUCH OF THE PERIOD. A FEW
BATCHES OF LIGHTER PRECIPITATION ARE MEANWHILE EXPECTED TO STREAK
THROUGH THE MIDWEST NEXT WEEK AS ENERGY DIGS IN BEHIND THE
NEGATIVELY TILTED TROUGH.  SHORTWAVES MOVING THROUGH THE SOUTHEAST
SUNDAY INTO TUESDAY ARE EXPECTED TO CAUSE LIGHT TO MODERATE
PRECIPITATION ACROSS THAT REGION OF THE COUNTRY.

GUIDANCE STILL HAVE TIMING/EMPHASIS ISSUES BUT NOW BETTER AGREE
THAT DEEPER COASTAL LOW DEVELOPMENT IS MORE LIKELY TO OCCUR LATER
TUE INTO THU AS A FRONTAL WAVE OFF THE SOUTHEAST MOVES SLOWLY
OFFSHORE AND UP OFF THE EAST COAST.  THIS WOULD BRING BEST
ORGANIZED RAINS FROM THE ERN MID-ATLANTIC TO ERN NEW ENGLAND.  A
TRACK IN THIS VEIN OFFERS POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY SNOWS ACROSS
INTERIOR NEW ENGLAND WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY AS THE LOW WRAPS INLAND.
INCREASING WINDS ALONG COASTAL NEW ENGLAND AND COASTAL
MID-ATLANTIC STATES TUESDAY ONWARD MAY LEAD TO SOME COASTAL
FLOODING AND BEACH EROSION.

ROTH/SCHICHTEL

nothing as major as Sandy, but it could hamper recovery efforts.
