Keeping Watch

Today, we are providing live coverage of Hurricane Sandy courtesy of The Weather Channel. Continuous reports can still be found, 140 characters at a time, at both #frankenstorm and #sandy on Twitter.

Meanwhile, as the storm rages, there is eternal vigilance at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of Arlington National Cemetary here in Virginia, courtesy of The 3rd Infantry Regiment of the United States Army. The photo here was the scene this morning as soldiers of “The Old Guard” continue to keep watch, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, under any and all conditions (including during the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon, little more than one mile away), since midnight on the second of July in 1937.
