Need to keep an eye on the votes that were cast before Sandy came calling. I could see those votes miraculously breaking for a certain candidate if the election is close.

Who’s eye would that be? In some areas it is the democrats that have the best early GOTV process thus they will be ahead. I saw a story just the other day that a school district was taking their seniors that had just turned 18 down to the early voting location so they could vote. It was a school field trip for the civics class. Some churches do a Sunday after church services group thing where they carpool to the location and vote. In some locations it will be upwards of 40-50% of the total vote cast early by either in person or absentee.
I believe that the heavily impacted hurricane states are NY, NJ, CT, and maybe MD and DE, and I think Obama was going to win those states anyway.
This is what happened in Illinois to get Kennedy elected and the Daleys a permanent seat at the foot of the government. "How many votes do you need? I got your votes right here."
