It's becoming increasingly important to keep an eye on Hurricane Sandy and it's possible effects on our area in the upcoming days. Everyone from Alan Kasper to the New Jersey Office of Emergrency Management and the National Weather Service have their eyes glued to it's progress.It's a tough storm to predict.

So, in the meantime, the best thing to do is start preparing. I've already been making mental notes on the items I need to make sure we have in the house like water, batteries etc. I also spent a little time walking around the front and backyard making mental notes of all the things I have to secure or move into the garage. The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management has a ton of info on how to get prepared. Click here for all the info.

I'm not going to start actually moving stuff until it's a little more clear what we're in for, or hopefully not in for. I know one thing. Alan is glued to the radar in the Point Weather Center, so we are in good hands as far as that is concerned.

In the meantime, let's keep our fingers crossed that Sandy stays out in the Atlantic and spares us. We will certainly keep you updated throughout the course of the storm.
