>>> I take it that Gloria in '85 would have been the worst storm you experienced personally?
Yeah--as far as tropical storms go. The worst part was the power outages. We were out for six days, others had to wait up to two weeks!
We've also had some nasty nor'easters and ice stroms that weren't much fun. I'd go through a Gloria again as long as I knew all the food in my fridge wouldn't spoil . Don't think I'd want part of a LI Express though (at least not to the East).
Back on topic...the wave off Africa definitely needs to be watched, as does the even stronger one in it's wake. Should these survive the trek across the pond, they will definitely be causing some trouble mid-next week. We might get Alex & Bonnie in the same breath.
