New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that the Holland Tunnel and Brooklyn Battery Tunnel will close at 2 p.m. Monday as a precaution against flooding
 
2012-10-29 10:52:00 AM  
Well, Holland Tunnel and Brooklyn Battery Tunnel shutting down at 2PM.

UH OH.

Luthien's Tempest:
Part of me hopes HU is closed tomorrow, too... Except I have a test Thursday in my dynamics class and the professor still hasn't given us the notes upon which that test is based. Damn miserable catch-22.


Hah, I was in the same situation with Monday's class. Oh well. And I know if Tuesday is closed it's just gonna mean more work on Thursday and next week... but I could use a day off or two.

Joe_diGriz: Christie has already used the word "stupid" about 3000 times in the past couple of days. Including, while answering a reporter's question about people doing unsafe things with electricity and gas, said "Instead of listing everything people shouldn't do, let's just put it this way - if it looks stupid, it is stupid, so don't do stupid things"


There are days I sorta like the fat bastard. Then again, he isn't my governor.

BMFPitt: Things still look OK over at Shore Hospital. Just had a baby about 25 hours ago. Parked on the 3rd floor so the car should be fine.

NAME THE BABY SANDY. IT WILL BE EPIC.

Actually, I'm expecting a baby boom in 9 months, and there'll be a lot of Sandy's since it could apply to either gender.

I have a friend named Sandy who is absolutely convinced that she was so named because of a fark at the beach.


LOL, I know a Sandy Beach.

Well, the Weather Channel just said this could be worse than any storm ever in recorded history.

That's not good.

maxheck: Ten minutes ago from the front porch in central MD:


Likewise here (also in central MD). Rain and some wind, but nothing terrible and nothing in the way of photo-worthy flooding. If this were just a normal, rainy Monday morning, I'd just be thinking "man, I don't want to drive to work in this mess."

The real shiatstorm is this afternoon through tonight.

/Office is closed anyway.

You have to keep in mind that New Yorkers usually avoid Times Square if at all possible. Though maybe today New Yorkers would be more likely to go since you'd have to assume the hordes are greatly lessened and I'm sure it's weird to see.

What a sensationalist quote in that link. "Most of the city under water". No, most of your streets have water on them. I'd suggest that most of the city is well above water still.

Also, there's a few busted-up Atlantic City pictures making their rounds that aren't as bad as they seem; they're pictures of the busted-up north Boardwalk area that has been in disrepair for basically forever. Not that things are great there, but we weren't talking a pristine area to begin with. The storm probably did them a favor by tearing that area up so they didn't have to.

Ah. Ocean City, Maryland. I was thinking Ocean City NJ. There's a Facebook page "Severe NJ Weather" with some good commentary and photos, but people are posting pics from previous storms, misattributing, and all other such careless stuff.

Haplo127x: WalkingCarpet: CipollinaFan: The news reporters (especially the weather people) seem way to excited about this storm.

This shiat is like heroin to them. I bet they have to hit the bathroom and rub one out to calm themselves down between reports.

Apparently they aren't the only ones. Reports are out that Bloomberg was sporting a stiffy at the press confrence. pic is gross and maybe nsfw


It was noticed by Ms. Weiner. No I'm not making that up.
