MAGIC WORKS! Hurricane Downgraded as it Reaches Shore!

For all of the volunteer Magicians who have been working tirelessly over the past 12 hours to weaken the punch of Hurricane Sandy as she threatens the East Coast, we have good news:
Forecasters say Sandy is no longer a hurricane but is still a dangerous system taking dead aim at New Jersey and Delaware.
Hurricane Sandy Hits Atlantic City, New Jersey
The National Hurricane Center said Monday evening that Sandy is a post-tropical storm and losing strength but still has sustained winds at 85 mph. The eye has almost made landfall. The center says storm surge has reached heights of 12.4 feet at Kings Point, N.Y. Gaining speed and power through the day, the storm knocked out electricity to more than 1.5 million people and figured to upend life for tens of millions more. It clobbered the boarded-up big cities of the Northeast corridor, from Washington and Baltimore to Philadelphia, New York and Boston, with stinging rain and gusts of more than 85 mph.

This does not mean that we can rest easy yet. We need even more Magicians to step up to the plate as some of us are quite exhausted after the magical ordeal of the past 12 hours. We urge you to focus your magical intention on balancing the elements in tropical storm Sandy, diminishing Air and Water and augmenting Earth and Fire.

We have come a long way, but we are not out of the woods yet. Chin up! Wands up! Command the elementals like the Magicians we are! What good is it to be a Magician if we can not help others with our Magic? 

Water and Air retreat, Fire and Earth bring balance and harmony!

As the storm progresses and NYC is out of the woods, we need to refocus our energies on New Jersey and Delaware, who are right now feeling the brunt of the storm.

We have had reports of a good many Magicians joining this effort having finished work today, just in time to replace those of us who are fatigued from fending off the destructive elemental forces of this storm all day. 

Let us now redouble our efforts.

Those who can, please join us in an all night magical vigil tonight until we receive news that the worst of the storm has passed so that our Magic is no longer needed.

Hopefully, by dawn, we can all get some rest!
