Another great looking morning, bright red sun now up over Ross Island, a slight draft from NE, enough to move the flag, temp a modest 8C, expect to be in mid-teens by this afternoon. Similar for tomorrow, with some changes expected later on in the day.
SANDY becoming more defined, coming ashore around New York City, heading inland for Toronto and all points in between. Downgraded this morning to Tropical Storm status, pick up another MPH or so and will return to CAT 1, the conditions for a PERFECT STORM remain in place, next few hours path will become more clear.
Quiet here one of the few occasions that I can recall no grandchild below decks. Emily in constant contact at the bus trip outset, a new adventure, but that dropped off soon, expect found it was alright to speak with others aboard the bus. Rob left for school, must assume he arrived in St.John no inquiries from his destination asking where he is, communication from that end a minimum.
Arena ice now under control, a minor leak in the system had expelled enough refrigerant to rob the unit of its ability to maximize what it could do. Plan is to have programmes in place and running on Monday.
