"sea weed is great fertilizer with no delivery" its an ill wind that blows no good. Dig thru that weed, they still haven't found all of Capt. Kids treasure.

There is a cold strong wind here coming in from the north west. Been raining hard off and on for days. 3 degrees C. It will be interesting to see when the two systems clash

waiting on Hurricane Sandy..tonight


The neighborhood, Breezy Point in the borough of Queens, had been extensively flooded by Sandy's record storm surge, and firefighters were hampered in their efforts to bring the blaze under control, a spokesman for the New York Fire Department said.


No casualties were immediately reported and the cause of the fire was under investigation.


A tweet from the FDNY's official Twitter feed said 50 or more homes were destroyed in the fire. The fire still was not under control by 5 a.m. (0900 GMT), the department said.
