WASHINGTON, October 29, 2012 – Let’s hope everyone in the path of Sandy has made all the necessary preparations because this is no time to be flippant about weather warnings.
If you are supposed to evacuate, do so, because this storm is one for the ages. While it makes for good television viewing, if you are not a newcaster, you should not be out in the roads, in a boat, scuba diving (yes, there was a man in full gear swimming in the streets) or for Pete’s sake, not on a surfboard
If you are fortunate enough to keep power, batten down the hatches, or you live North of the Mississippi, you can enjoy a night of great television.
