One-hundred twenty-six years later to the day, "Lady Liberty" is bracing herself for some pretty darn breezey weather! Hurricane Sandy is, to quote NY1's head meteorologist, "for real, on her way, and looks to be pretty strong." The MTA is closing the subway system at 7:00 p.m. tonight and suspending bus service at 9:00 p.m. PATH trains will suspect service at midnight. New York City schools are closed tomorrow, Monday, October 29th.
It's advised that during the storm's height if you don't have to be outside, don't be, and if you're on the lower levers of a building with street- or park-facing windows, keep your shades closed since they could help contain glass in the highly unlikely event of flying debris shattering your window.
Well, at least New Yorkers will have something to talk about around the water cooler on Tuesday morning...and on social media since a few hours ago, ad nauseum.
