Big storm?
Heading for New York?
With huge waves?
Followed by lots of snow?
Scheduled to happen the day after tomorrow?

This was a terrible storm! 1.2 to 6.9 billion in damages. Between 9 and 7,211 injured. Rainfall totals of 1.5 to 91 inches. This was certainly somewhere between the 3rd and 125th worst storm ever.

313 PM EDT THU OCT 25 2012

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.

This guy must get all the chicks...

reklamfox: FreakinB: I live on the south shore of Long Island (a block from the water), I commute to work in Manhattan, and my girlfriend's place is inland in NJ but right next to a river. So I could be super farked if this storm is bad.

People keep saying this may be like the 1991 storm. I was 5 years old in 1991 so I don't remember it.

I was also 5 when that storm hit. I remember looking out our living room window 3ft off the ground and the snow was right up to the screen. We couldn't get out the door, so we all climbed out the window. It was cool!


I was eight in the blizzard of 1991, 1978, and we had to dig tunnels to get out of the house. It was full of wintery win.

Damn kids in here. Off my snow covered lawn, I've got onions to belt.

Friskya: TrollingForColumbine: If people are snowed in or without power for a long time how could this effect the election?

The republicans will lift themselves up by their bootstraps and trudge off through the snow to cast their ballots.

The democrats will sit at home, whining about why hasn't Obama sent busses, cabs, boats, trailers, and dog sleds to pick them up and take them to the balloting station. 

/and bring them home again


I was thinking the old and infirm (republicans) would stay home cowering for fear of roaming snow vandals, and the young and hip (democrats) would ride their solar charged electric snow mobiles to vote.

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

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.

buzzcut73: Mainly because the forecasts go out over systems that are older than most of us and they only render caps. Things like telefax, and TTY. They've tried to get rid of those systems, but the uproar that happens every time they have keeps them online.
