Yesterday, we wrote about Tropical Storm Sandy, making jokes about a European agency that wrote with tangible agitation about "THE STORM’S MENACE- A POWERHOUSE CAPABLE OF WHIPPING THE ATLANTIC INTO A FRENZY AND CHURNING UP DANGEROUS TIDES." Caps in the original, of course.
We laughed it off. LOL, wacky Europeans. This thing is headed out to sea! All this talk about it being a "billion dollar" storm, or a "snor'eastercane" (snow + nor'easter + hurricane), was unwarranted!
Well, yesterday, it became a hurricane. And this morning, NOAA updated its forecast track.
