(CNN) – As I write this post from Arlington, Virginia, just over the river from Washington, DC, my neighbors and I are getting ready to experience the storm currently known as Hurricane Sandy.
I say 'currently' because it will soon lose its tropical characteristics as it merges with a cold front coming in from the west.
If that forecast continues to hold, Sandy will become a hybrid system. Many fear that combination will lead to the formation of a "superstorm."
Meteorologists are using words like 'unprecedented,' 'historic,' and 'record-setting' to describe what's about to happen to the US East Coast.
Unfortunately, in the world of weather, those adjectives are rarely used positively.
In today's Sunday Playlist, we're looking at some of the great reporting and compelling sounds of other historic, modern US weather events.
Be sure to check back next Sunday for a new playlist.
If you're in the path of the storm, be safe, be prepared, and stay with CNN to for the latest information.
