Econintersect: The latest data shows 100% certainty that winds in excess of 39 mph are buffeting the U.S. Atlantic coast all the way from Wilmington, NC to Boston. The 5 pm report from the NOAA (Monday 29 October) indicates hurricane force winds extend across more than half of this distance of this distance (about 450 miles of coastline) from Chicoteague, VA to Chatham, MA south of Cape Cod. The entire expanse of tropical storm winds will cover more than 800 miles as Sandy "pancakes" into the mainland.

The following image from a Huffington Post video earlier Monday shows a satellite image of the storm.
A photo taken over the weekend was forwarded via Facebook by Roberta Kruse-Fordham (originally from Jason Otts) shows an awe inspiring view as the storm approached New York.
And Roberta also forwarded two photos released by the Photoshop News Network showing that there was at least one ocassion of rather light hearted interaction with the approaching storm.
And shortly thereafter the scene was changed.
The final two photos are attributed to Unateresa Gormley.
