Well below normal temperatures will continue into next week, not good news for people that still have no power and to add insult to injury a coastal storm is likely to affect the area the middle of next week and although it will not nearly be as strong as Superstorm Sandy it will be a nuisance during the clean up activities from Sandy!. Long gas lines are now common in the area and although there is plenty of gas around but power outages at the stations and at the refineries are causing these problems that may last several more days..
