The weather is much quieter than this time last year when Sandy was moving up toward us.
Here is my blog from one year ago on October 25, 2012.

Meanwhile in case you haven’t heard there is a more likely chance of a devastating storm affecting our area early next week. Most of the computer models now have Sandy hitting the area anywhere from the Chesapeake Bay area into Southern New England, the only model that has the storm going further offshore before moving back and hitting Maine is the American model (GFS). This is a very serious situation, this storm has the potential to be stronger than Irene last year. Hurricane force winds, torrential rain and coastal flooding is becoming more likely. This situation will become more clear tomorrow as more data is fed into the computer models. The National Weather Service are launching balloons four times a day instead of twice across the country to get more measurements of the upper air conditions. It may be a good idea to start to think about preparing for this potential historic storm. The eye of Sandy (the hurricane’s not Duncan’s) is located just off the coast and Cuba and will affect the Bahamas today and tomorrow then move north… Stay tuned for further updates…

Enjoy our quiet weather this year!!!!
