The worst is not supposed to hit New York until … well basically right now. Sometime this evening the wind will pick up and the rain will really start to fall as Hurricane Sandy makes a pass and heads west. Things aren’t supposed to die down until tomorrow afternoon at the earliest. Atlantic City is underwater, a building partially collapsed on 8th Ave., thousands are already without power, and transportation — public and private — is shut down in NYC. It’s a mess out there, so all of you in the area please be safe.
If you’re clear of the storm or just happen to still have internet access, use this as your open thread. The baseball season is over, so all you have tonight is the 49ers at the Cardinals. Talk about that or anything else (except politics!) here. Go nuts.
