Southeast Michigan here. Not expecting anything too extreme, but I saw one prediction of waves up to 22 feet on Lake Michigan around Chicago. That is pretty unusual. Planning to head out shortly and stock up on petrol for the generator just in case the remnants of Sandy cause any outage here.

They are now saying 31 feet on Lake Michigan,  hope they are all wrong, like the tsunami warning yesterday for Honolulu, that ended up a 2 foot wave ....

@Jack (et al)
Keep us informed how things work out there.

good luck!
Here in the Netherlands we seldom have storms like Sandy (why must I think of Olivia NJ), but floodings are unfortunately too familiar

We're quite a ways inland, on the rare occasions that we do get "remnants" of a hurricane, it's usually not distinguishable from just the average rainy spell. This one is sounding like it'll be above average, especially where wind is concerned, but I'm not overly worried. Folks out East will bear the brunt of it. Crossroads will probably see much more than we will, and I think he's a bit North of the worst part.
