Sandy In My Shoes Brings Memories of the Salty Air...

By Richard Romano
Published: October 29, 2012

Apologies to The Drifters... OK, so today everyone—on The Facebook Machine and even in the real world—is talking about the so-called “Frankenstorm,” aka Hurricane Sandy. I always associate the name “Sandy” with singer/actress Sandy Duncan, so my mind has been riven with images of a giant, 100-foot Sandy Duncan attacking the Eastern Seaboard, picking up New York City subway cars, knocking over buildings, blundering through bridges, etc. Sort of like a perky Godzilla. I suspect that’s just me. (As I live about 200 miles inland, I am less worried about flooding, or any serious effects, although if I see Jim Cantore pull into my parking lot, I’ll start to worry.) Anyway, for the morbidly curious, or for any meteorology nerds out there, LiveScience has helpfully compiled 4 Things You Need to Know About Hurricane Sandy. UPDATE: Following the latest Sandy developments on The Facebook Machine. Best post yet, from Albany, NY's Palace Theatre:
We regret to inform everyone that tonight's showing of "SINGIN' IN THE RAIN" is ironically cancelled due to the threat of the incoming storm.

The Blog extends its best wishes to everyone affected by Sandy, and hopes for a speedy cleanup and return to normal. —Richard
