Hurricane Sandy The Tropical Storm and Noreaster

Hurricane?  Tropical Storm?  Noreaster? 

Don't believe the hype on this alleged hurricane which is now transitioning to extratropical and rather strong mid-latitude cyclone that is not even a "noreaster"  but just a strong persistent east coast storm.  Very simple:

Expect strong winds along the coastal regions and the usual flood prone areas should take caution but other than that it's the usual rain, wind, and flooding potential and the coverage of evacuations and other concerns is getting old.

But if you want to get all worked up about it keep reading the news headlines of the usual fear mongers telling you all hell is about to break loose on Long Island, etc.
