Bad news from our old stomping ground

Downtown Jersey City, N.J., where we went to high school and where one of our business associates lives, is currently in a state described as "a full-fledged disaster." Those folks deserve better. Our thoughts, prayers, and hopes are with them.

Can you believe this storm was moving along at 28 mph when it hit the coast? For something that big to be - not just spinning - but moving forward at that speed? Incredible. No wonder it pushed so much water out in front of it.

NYT reports rising water at the Oyster Ceek nuke plant.

The Asbury Park Press is reporting that at least 20 fires are raging in Ocean County.

AP: "Superstorm Sandy puts NJ's Oyster Creek nuclear power plant on alert; NY's Indian Point plant shut down"

WASHINGTON -- Part of a nuclear power plant was shut down late Monday while another plant -- the nation's oldest -- was put on alert after waters from superstorm Sandy rose 6 feet above sea level.

One of the units at Indian Point, a plant about 45 miles north of New York City, was shut down around 10:45 p.m. because of external electrical grid issues, said Entergy Corp., which operates the plant.

Sorry about your stomping grounds. Meanwhile in the southern part of this state we are having bizarrely beautiful weather. But I am not at all sure they are not two sides of an increasingly frightening coin.
