The storm arrived on time, as predicted, and behaved exactly as advertised. Much to the surprise of too many people. The only criticism I have heard from a knowledgable source (Bastardi) was that NHC declassified it too soon, as at land fall it was still very much a tropical system, albeit very sheared, and behaved accordingly. I have to say the picture made by AVN-infrared, as the center of circulation touched the New Jersey coast line at about 8:00 p.m. last night was classic...It showed a multi-layred cloud bank surrounding the small circulation center, which had become exposed by the shearing off of the higher cloud tops to the west. It was a classic view and I wish I had saved it. To me, it was still very much a tropical system at that exact moment.
