Call this “images taken under the overcast skies prefacing Sandy’s arrival.”  The first two here were taken by JED in Norfolk on Friday, Oct 26 while Sandy was off Florida.  Remember Norfolk Rebel from the Schooner race here and in the Flickr show along the left margin??  JED got these under leaden light.

Bay Queen . . . . need to find out more about her.

Saturday, October 27 midday.  I took this from Penn’s Landing in Philly looking toward Camden.   It’s Jupiter.   I took previous fotos of Jupiter and other old East Coast tugs here two years ago… including one of Rose, currently waiting to be scrapped!  Junk-rigged schooner is the 48′ Summer Wind, recently also in the Great! Chesapeake race.    Not to be confused with the 101′ Summerwind.

Also Saturday midday, Sea Pearl at the dock in Camden as seen with Moshulu to my back.  As of this writing, Sea Pearl is still at that same dock.

Saturday 1600 hrs . .  Camden waterfront looking toward Philly.  From l to r, you catch some details of USS New Jersey, Moshulu, and Olympia.   Doubleclick to enlarge.

Sunday 1800 hrs.  With one exception, there are no cargo vessels in the major port areas of the 6boro.  The exception in lower left is CSAV Itajai.

Sunday 2230 hrs.  An outbound exodus, although the three blue arrows . . . Aidaluna, Carnival Miracle, and Explorer . . . all cruise ships . . . might experience some seasickness?

Sunday 2300.  The tanker Noreaster–an appropriate name for a vessel in this storm–is still zigzagging offshore as of this morning.

If you want real-time views, check this webcam. It’s mounted on Staten Island, southwest portion of the Upper Bay, ie, about a mile north of the VZ Bridge.

And a possible victim of the storm:  HMS Bounty, abandoned a hundred miles off Hatteras, as reported here.  … Now believed lost with some crew missing.   Scroll thru here for some of my fotos of Bounty.

Stay safe.   I won’t go down to the water until after it lays down.
