Everything Finance Monthly Round Up: Here Comes Sandy

Published on Oct 29 2012 // Written By // Finance Around The Web

Hurricane Sandy is just a category 1 storm now, but sometime overnight, it will merge with an Arctic front and the jet stream to become a super storm.  Forecasters are saying it could be the largest storm ever seen in the Atlantic.  If you are on the East coast, stay safe; Sandy is about to become a monster.

Around the web, I have been reading some excellent personal finance articles.  Here are some of my favorites:
