(CNN) -- No one hopes Hurricane Sandy lives up to its potential.
The storm that has already claimed nearly two dozen lives in the Caribbean churned Friday near the northern Bahamas, and meteorologists warn that it packs the potential to slam the U.S. Northeast as soon as Monday with powerful winds and pelting rain.
My buddy down in New Orleans said the same thing in '05, and he died in that cane, brah, he died.
lmao, that storm was expected to make landfall the entire time. Every projection has this thing landing offshore, but the media is trying to turn it into a fucking circus. This things gunna be a drizzle and a gust of wind, mark my words.
