A storm is being called Frankenstorm because the monster is heading up the East Coast. It is three storms in one. It is another perfect storm, and it will be deadly. The cold mixed with tropical winds will cause billions of dollars in losses, but more importantly, it may cost lives.
According to the Boston Herald, "This October surprise mixes a cold front coming in from the west, Arctic air coming down from the north, a jet stream that will â€œcaptureâ€ the storm, a full moon, plenty of leaves on the trees â€” and a wind-whipping Sandy."
It sounds really nasty. It is not just cold artic air, but it will be mixed with tropical hurricane force winds. It may be a good weekend to rent some movies, have some meals prepared, and bring in that brass monkey!
