Perfect! The drama unfolds at a nuclear power plant located at the base of a volcano (because shut up that's why), when the two weather systems converge all hell breaks loose and our spunky protagonist must buck the system to save her family.

Great idea! I'll include a fabric eating bacteria that was being researched at a nearby military weapons facility. Might even squeeze in a zombie threat.

Toss in some fracking at the base of the nuclear power plant because Pennsylvania.


But that could cause an earthquake. A blizzard, hurricane, volcano and a nuclear disaster are plausable but if you add an earthquake then it would just become silly.

scubamage: HoleChicken: Lansdale, PA checking in yet again, just north of Philly. Rain has picked up, wind seems to be as well.

Did I hear correctly on the news that the storm is intensifying, by the way? Isn't it supposed to be the opposite of that in northern waters?

Normally that'd be the case. The problem is it's joining up with at least one other storm, and on top of that it's a full moon so we get a massively higher than normal high tide. So, stuff is gonna be getting way worse. Local NPR reported that we may be seeing snow now - hoping it isn't true because if it is, damage potential just got cranked up to 11.


Also set to make landfall pretty much exactly at hight tide.

It's as if every possible condition that could make this thing worse decided to show up at the party at the same time.

My dog was very not amused with this weather. He barely made it outside, onto a covered porch, before turning his ass back around and trying to go back inside. I dragged him around the block (sort of - I can't go past the entrance to the back parking lot as there is about three inches of water in the road there, and I'm not trying to drag my dog through that. Much dragging ensued, and I'm fairly certain he has every intention of just going ahead and doing his business inside. He also didn't appreciate me standing around for a little bit to get some pictures.

He is now lying on a towel next to my bed shaking. Poor thing.

It is very windy out, and as I said, there's some minor street flooding - worse than the storms we had a couple months back, so I suspect that there are many impassable roads elsewhere around here. The raindrops are hitting my windows quite hard.

Oh, and skirts and rubber boots are God's gift to women. Throw on a skirt over some pants and put on rubber boots, a sweatshirt and some scarves, and I'm almost thoroughly dry after spending 20 minutes outside in this slop.

In addition to all that, the storm is traversing the Gulf Stream, which is nice and warm compared to where it has been recently. It won't strengthen any more (since the Gulf Stream is pretty narrow) but it won't have much time to weaken anymore either before reaching the coast.

Hollywood will eat it up. There's no business like snowblizzness.


Hollywood, being in So Cal, SUCKS at snowstorms. Stephen King's Storm of the Century was pittifully horrible because the end-of-the-world snow they showed was a normal Tuesday in February for anywhere that gets regular snow. Barely an excuse to be late for work. It ruined the whole premise of the movie.

Meanwhile in CNY...

Sorry if that's not exciting.

There has already been loss of life, there is already MASSIVE flooding, and it hasn't even hit us yet, you farking dolt.


Ah yes, can't wait for the requisite "How Stupid Dumbfarks Managed to Die in Hurricane Sandy" chart like they did last year with Irene. Epic facepalm is epic.

I was once assigned to a project there for work and that walkway would get hit by waves in your typical heavy rainstorm. I'm sure it's going to get real bad there. Such a great view though.

Oh, and for the farkers that like to obsess over graphs and data, and for some reason don't already know of this, here is the USGS real time water data site. Looks like the creek by my house might get real close to a record high level, and that's just on projections they have without knowing how much actual rain we are going to get.

Windy and rain is coming down. Local news says up to 10 inches of rain over the course of today and tomorrow. When Sandy makes landfall my area will get wind gusts over 60mph.
