The dry corner of the storm

The map depicts rain in inches.

As Sandy plowed its way onto land last night, we saw the Albany Weather Examiner page comment that this area had ended up on the "dry side" of the storm.

So we looked up the National Weather Service 1-day precipitation map today, and as you can see above, the Capital Region very much ended up with very little rain compared to the rest of the Northeast. In fact, you might even be able to say we were in the "dry corner" of the storm. We were lucky.

Comments

We were very lucky to escape Sandy's wrath!
One of my sisters lives in Greenich Village near 5th Ave.
She finally answered her cell phone today to tell me she had walked all the way to 79th to power her cell.
All the electricity was cut off in her area.
That means no WATER either.
I had told her last w.e. to come here!
Hope all N.Y.C.'s,and N.J. 's power comes on soon!

... I tend to ask questions that make the person think about what they just said. I ask it sweetly and in a tone that notes confusion on my part. I have been called honey in the office and asked the person, " Can I ask what you mean when you call me honey? Because you don't call John honey." It calls out that he's treating you differently for being a woman. If he still doesn't get it, you can be more direct: "I appreciate that you respect my work and treat me equally, but I wouldn't want others to think otherwise based on how you address me."
