KrispyKritter: last years storm a huge farking section of tree came down through our roof, through Mrs.Kritters bedroom ceiling and out the front wall of the house. that coont left me in a freezing no electric house while she took off to her Hello Kitty Weekend PlayTime Rental House she has in NY state. For reasons unknown Mr.Kritter is neither welcome nor invited there. Nice, huh?

was left without electric for days. sucked big time. insurance company was useless. no one wanted to come take away the downed tree and wait for a check from the insurance company. it was a learning experience.

here we are a year later, everything fixed and of course insurance co jacked up rates up sky high because we put in ONE claim. the dooshbags that own the wooded property near us that has been the cause of damage to our house has never once done any maintenance to their property or trees. and the dooshbag that owns the house next to us which has been overpriced for sale for years leaves up a row of trees between our houses (on his property) which is a threat to both houses. he is an arsehole.

if the house gets farked up again this year that's it, i'm farking leaving. i'll find me some sweet momma that needs a little love muffin toy and i'll make her happy as long as she wants me around. tired of being treated like a turd in a punch bowl in my own home anyway.

I'll happily risk trees on my house to have a lower cooling bill in the summer. My neighbors are getting rid of trees and I don't understand, they can save you so much in electricity.

Satanic_Hamster: Side tangent: Two of my co-workers are talking about this right now.

Being Texas, they're hoping the storm will be so bad that it will "keep the liberals from voting."


Being in Alaska, I know for a fact that President Obama ordered HAARP fired up specifically to keep the right-wing extremists and tea party members home protecting their property from the hordes of libruls that are just waiting for the pillaging to start.

Seriously. I heard the order come through myself. It's like one huge slap in the face to Rmoney and (a little bit) Trump.

All true. Every bit of it.*

Thats why you should vote third party, since your D vote is a waste, waste it on someone you actually agree with, plus if third parties get enough votes in the popular vote they have an easier time the next election cycle getting on all of the ballots.

Last year my wife and I filmed a quickie zombie video near the meadowlands early the morning after that freak storm. It was hilarious watching the handful of drivers reactions as she sliced open my Intestines with a machette.

I'd like to film a sequel next week but were getting divorced so handing my soon to be ex a machette and having her swung it at me doesn't seem prudent right now

VALID 12Z SUN OCT 28 2012 - 12Z THU NOV 01 2012


...HIGH IMPACT MERGING OF ENERGETIC SYSTEMS ANTICIPATED OFF THE
MID ATLANTIC COAST...


PRELIMINARY UPDATE...

DESPITE A MODEST CLUSTER OF OUTLYING DETERMINISTIC SOLUTIONS AND
ENSEMBLE MEMBERS FROM THE VARIOUS MODELING CENTERS, THE LION'S
SHARE OF GUIDANCE INDICATES THAT THE CIRCULATION ASSOCIATED WITH
HURRICANE SANDY WILL PASS CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE AMPLIFYING POLAR
TROUGH OVER THE EASTERN UNITED STATES TO BECOME INCORPORATED INTO
A HYBRID VORTEX OVER THE MID ATLANTIC AND NORTHEAST NEXT TUESDAY.
THE HIGH DEGREE OF BLOCKING FROM EASTERN NORTH AMERICA ACROSS THE
ENTIRE ATLANTIC BASIN IS EXPECTED TO ALLOW THIS UNUSUAL MERGER TO
TAKE PLACE, AND ONCE THE COMBINED GYRE MATERIALIZES, IT SHOULD
SETTLE BACK TOWARD THE INTERIOR NORTHEAST THROUGH HALLOWEEN,
INVITING PERHAPS A GHOULISH NICKNAME FOR THE CYCLONE ALONG THE
LINES OF "FRANKENSTORM", AN ALLUSION TO MARY SHELLEY'S GOTHIC
CREATURE OF SYNTHESIZED ELEMENTS.

Luckily, I lived in FL for 15 years and moved up to New England last November. I'll probably be one of the few calm ones in a 50 mile radius!

Heh...yep, we're good friends with Cap'n Morgan ourselves, especially when the bad weather (and inevitable power outages) rolls in! And don't forget ice, not just for food but for the beer. Oh, and plenty of rye bread, cheese, hard salami, etc....stuff that doesn't need to be kept chilled.

True. I did some work in Jersey on the shore and my boss there said despite the evacuation route signs (which just mainly pointed you away from the ocean) from what he heard from the planners that worked on em they'd still be screwed if that ever happened.

Since that office was across the street from the beach *and* basically a basement (half of it was above street level, half not) he paid attention to such things.
