My pr0n name is Tom Seaview: intelligent comment below: Well you obviously aren't a cop if the first thing you're going to do when things around you get sketchy is bug out with your wife and leave your neighbors SOL

OK, you're a troll and an idiot and an asshole, so I don't need to correct your mistakes anymore. First time I've needed to invoke the Ignore list.


You're right. You sound like enough of a jerk to be a cop. Abusing a car's cop-style for non-police purposes, bragging about guns, ditching a neighborhood the instant trouble hits ...

Karma? Methinks you don't really understand the concept. You choose to live below sea level, I don't, so I'm being punished for what exactly? Being smarter in choosing my geographical location? You're a tool.

katfairy: My pr0n name is Tom Seaview: SuperNinjaToad: don't forget ammo.. and I mean lots and lots of it!

Done, and done.

We live in Delaware, twelve miles from the Salem / Hope Creek nuclear plants. There is a small but non-zero shance that the storm, which appears to be coming right into Delaware Bay, will cause a Oh Mein Papa in the earth's crust. If it does, we're going to load people, cats and guns into the Bluesmobile and make a run for the mountains.

I've been to Delaware, and I have to admit, right now I'd be packing my stuff and heading off to visit any relative who lived out of state. Seriously- a state whose highest point is less than 500 feet above sea level is not somewhere I'd want to be during this type of storm. Good luck.

/Mom grew up on eastern shore of Maryland
//her family still lives down there


Delaware = 3 counties at low tide, 1 at high.

AbbeySomeone: Bontesla: grimlock1972: Seriously all nuclear power plants should be built on geological stable land well inland and not on flood plains. Buildings can be constructed to with stand tornadoes and other high winds but floods are harder to stop.

Not Building nuclear power plants in a quake prone area should be no brainer.

You'd think. Then again - there's a new fracking site being opened within a mile of a nuclear plant. The permits were approved.

That is irresponsible in a grand way. Where is this at?


Probably North Carolina, we do have Republicans in charge for now. Sigh...

OT: If a storm was powerful enough to damage a nuclear plant badly enough to cause a meltdown, there wouldn't be anything left around it to irradiate but wreckage.

The lowest of the human trash buy a car and make it look like a police vehicle. You're pathetic.


Unless it displays emergency lights (blinky flashy blues or whatnot) why would anyone get out of the way for that little thing?

Wow. You are so lucky... and smart, to have chosen to live where there will never be any natural or man made disasters for the entirety of your existence. Hooray you!


Hey dumbfark, I said his argument that it's karma was stupid. Sorry if you had trouble grasping the finer point.

Not to worry. The power companies are right now printing bills with a hurricane surcharge and mailing them, since you won't be able to do that online or by phone in the near future.

If only Romney were president, we'd all get to watch FOX change sides after waiting a year or so for any federal acknowledgement much less actual aid.  Bless you Shep.

Nuclear reactor containment buildings are designed to withstand an airliner hitting them directly. Unless they are built (stupidly) in a flood plain they should be fine. They might shut down as a precaution, but as long as their backup generators have the right plug connectors they will be fine.

Problem with situations like these is that the more time we have to think about them, the more time we have to think what could go wrong. That's great for people who can do something about it, but for the rest of us the anticipation is the catastrophe.

I live in Minnesota and work for the big power company. I expect in a couple of weeks we'll be getting the touchy-feely news stories on our intranet again about how crews went out to help the helpless East Coast utilities restore power again.

don't forget ammo.. and I mean lots and lots of it!

GO USA!


Let's examine this for a second. Say you have a home invader and have to shoot them. One bullet. Hell, we'll say a whole clip because you're a terrible shot, so 12 bullets. I assume lots and lots of ammo means a thousand rounds or so. It isn't hard to get a thousand rounds. That's almost a hundred people give or take a few. If you need enough ammo to mow down a hundred people, you've got bigger problems than the amount of ammo you decided to stock.
