Hurricane Sandy

It's not a Wilson Pickett song, but there are plenty of people along the East Coast who would like to see Sandy slow down (at least in wind speed).

National Weather Service and Google Earth
For the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest, it looks like the hurricane will stay well east of South Carolina and north of us should it turn northwest as shown by the National Weather Service's cone of uncertainty in the above image.  However, the swamp is fairly dry and we would not mind some rain.  Based on the NWS graphic below, we will be at the outer edge of the rainfall generated by the storm.

Although rain would be welcomed in the swamp, it will not be welcomed by those who have signed up for tomorrow evening's nightwalk.  Like many on the East Coast, we will be watching the weather for the next day or two!
