Hi Yule (B)Loggers!

Just wanted to drop a note post Hurricane Sandy. My power was restored yesterday. We are still experiencing brief outages. My place of work sustained a complete loss of power today and closed. We were closed the entire previous week. Right now, it is pouring snow outside. The wind is throwing it against the window screens. 

When I think of The Yule Log, I am reminded of NYC.  While Hurricane Sandy pummeled my apartment for 3.5 hours, sitting on pillows in my tiny apartment hallway, I listened via headphones to the WOR Radio Live Broadcast from NYC.  If I hadn't been able to find a station still transmitting, I know I would have gone completely bonkers. 

The Yule Log does that for me...keeps me from going bonkers, being alone, on the most over commercialized holidays celebrated.  The night of the Hurricane, WOR Radio kept me from losing my collective mind that night. I am grateful.

Be safe!
Yours in the Yule Log,
Diane

Glad your power was finally restored Diane.  This was one very nasty and powerful, almost revengeful, storm with all the damage it caused and only being a Category 1 Hurricane, but it was the size of it, over 1000 miles across, then combining with a storm from a cold from from the Western end of New York State and that just added to her fury.

We got high winds until about 2:00 AM last Tuesday because we were on the far end of the storm, and we, thankfully didn't lose power, but the wind blew all the leaves off the trees which normally stay on most of the trees here until November which was good because if we had gotten a wet heavy snow out of this because we were cold enough for snow, if the trees had their leaves they would've been much heavier and would've caused more damage by limbs falling on power lines.  We did have some areas where the wind toppled some trees and a few places were without phone or electric for a couple days.

It was good that you could at least listen to WOR Radio so at least you knew what was going on and also so you wouldn't go stir crazy.

Several years ago I made an MP3 of the 3-hour Yule Log soundtrack and it was one continuous MP3 so I couldn't just pick any particular song, but if I were in the same situation, I would've been glad that I have this on my MP3 player and would listen to it as long as the battery would last or if I could find a place to recharge it.

Anyways, I'm glad you are safe and back online.  I hope you didn't sustain any damage to your apartment or vehicle.

hollynivy: glad you're doing okay. Take time to send WOR a letter that they DID serve the public interest in a scary time of nasty weather.  They would really appreciate it as their tower area was flooded and their studios were out of commission, so they had to 'borrow' a radio studio from their competition (ClearChannel) and use a 23,000 mile satellite link to get the sound from the borrowed studio to the WOR transmitter towers.  Glad WOR was on the air for you.
Take care!

Johnny,

I think something similar happened with MyTV 38 WSBK in Boston, because they were showing CBS Network programming last Monday During the Hurricane and I think I saw on the screen WBZ because they couldn't get the MeTV feed or something due to weather damage.  They own both channels so they were showing the CBS Feed and at some points, were showing live newscasts from reporters out in the storm.

I subscribe to Dish Network and though I don't live anywhere near the Tri-State area, I am able to get WPIX, WWOR, WSBK. KWGN and KTLA as a Superstation package.  They aren't in HD, but that's OK.

I was pretty much glued to WPIX Starting Sunday evening and WPIX at some point along with WWOR postponed all regular programming and had reporters in the field during the Hurricane and they stayed on the air with live reports from all over the area.  Where I live, we got the winds around 5PM Monday evening and they were done by 2AM Tuesday.   We had a lot of rain but we didn't lose power, thank God.  But again, the entire time I was awake, I was glued to the TV watching WPIX and would switch to WWOR and WSBK for a moment just to see what they were reporting on, but would go back to WPIX and I believe WPIX was still broadcasting live from the storm aftermath on Wednesday until late afternoon.

I used to live near the area and grew up with WPIX, and I wanted to see what was happening in areas I had visited when I was younger and I couldn't believe the devastation.  I am grateful that there wasn't more loss of life than there was, and even though there was so much damage, at least people did survive for the most part.  But it's going to take a long time to recover from this.

I don't remember which award program it is, but I think when they have the rewards. I think it's the Oscars, that they should nominate WWOR and WPIX TV and WOR Radio for their continued coverage throughout this monstrous storm.  And give them some sort of Journalism award for their non-stop coverage of the events that happened.

Christmas Always and Johnny Electron,
I am glad you are both safe.  Good to hear from you. Thank You for your kind thoughts.

Christmas Always: I heard that some folks did not begin to feel the storm until around 2AM.  Here, it was almost like clockwork.  They said by 8PM we would begin experiencing the high winds, and wow, did we ever! It last until little bit past 11PM. If I understand correctly, the hurricane was 1,000 Miles in width???  Just can't imagine this.

Johnny Electron: That's very interesting what you shared regarding WOR Radio.  I recalled the announcers talking about working in the complete dark.  Then the wind isn't just howling, it's buckling around my apartment complex, and they are describing how Con Ed shut down the power for Manhattan, and then about being able to see the "ground moving" below...the water filling the subway system.  Honestly, "War of the Worlds" was radio show, this was real, and we live through it. So, I will reach out and let them know at WOR Radio how I appreciated their broadcast, as you suggested.

Aside note: When I was a kid, Hurricane Agnes stalled and dumped massive amounts of rain over my little town in Pennsylvania. Long story short: record flood.  Our area was under water for days.  The NBC affiliate moved to higher ground. They broadcasted twice a day. Once at 6PM with a news update, and then another at 11PM. After the 11PM news, they broadcast "The Tonite Show" with Johnny Carson from the previous night. The story goes, they did this to give people something else to think about, to give them hope, something to laugh at.  I reached for my old waterproof Walkman AM/FM player that night with the same hopes, that I would find a station to comfort me, keep me company, so I didn't feel I was alone, in the dark, in the storm. The Yule Log has cut through my loneliest Holiday's the same way. 

Best Wishes,
Diane/Holly N Ivy

Thanks Diane,

We actuallly were getting rain a few days or so before Hurrican Sandy even made landfall because of a cold front coming from the West and it pretty much rained I believe Thursday and then the cold front and Hurricane Sandy combined, and we got the wrap around from it and it was pretty much raining the following Friday, so 8 days of rain, but not to the extent that the East Coast got. It was just a normal rain for the first few days, then on it was rain, rain and more rain and then the winds.  We had areas where our creeks and rivers flooded, but not in my area.  We made up for part of our rain deficit though because we hardly had any rain from June through September and if it did rain, it would only last a couple minutes and then stop and the sun would come out and just make it more humid.

Yes, though this was only a Category-1 Hurricane, the combining of the rain from the West which we got I think from Michigan there was a lot of water, plus the storm surge on the East Coast.  The storm was so large, that it would take a commercial alrliner 2 hours to fly the distance this storm was covering.

We were fortunate that the storm took a slighty different track, or we might have gotten a lot more rain and stronger winds.  But I wish it had actually turned and gone out to sea because there was so much damage and I believe there are still some people without power.

We were supposed to get some snow from this storm too, but fortunately we were just on the edge and we didn't get it as bad as a lot of people.  I think we may have had wind gusts up to 50MPH, but the storm had sustained winds ove 75MPH I believe.  So you can image what the gust were like in hte areas hardest hit.
