Until tornado season. Then "flyover state" becomes all too literal.

Tornadoes and seasonal flooding ARE bad, however you coastal kids are still WAY more accident prone than we are.

Well, no, or at least not necessarily. It costs more. Population density is at play.



Shaddup. This is fark! Don't bring your logical analysis into my snarky .jpeg argument methodology.

Wow, thanks for the link. Stay safe.

I live in Journal Square at the top of a hill on my block, so I'm not too worried about flooding. However, my lights just started to flicker for a bit. The weird thing is that it doesn't look very bad out there. There's some gusts of wind and almost no rain.

Ok, so now for even more serious issues (after watching Discovery yesterday):

What about Plum Island???

Y'all are going to have some real cool things washing up on your shores...

Mikey1969: Its 4:30AM and I cannot sleep

Yeah, I've been having that lately, too. Slept 3 hours or so on Monday night, didn't get to sleep again until 11 or so on Wednesday, and then only slept for an hour or so. I have these nights where I've taken so many pain killers, muscle relaxers, sleeping meds and beer that I should be dead, instead I'm just awake. Hell, I got 3 hours last night and may be up for the day now.

I like the '$20 says I'm drunker than you' part, that made me LOL. Now to see if I can get back to sleep...



Lay off the coffee? Try decaf?

Yep. I'm an Earth System Science major, and I am hoping for our GIS class this afternoon to either be canceled because people are busy, or to focus on this stuff.

By the way, I'm in Alabama and we're having some atypically strong wind today. In Alabama. A long farking way from the storm.

This is how Katrina was for us (60 miles inland). Not a whole lot of rain, but the constant wind caused an epic disaster 4 hours in. We were able to walk outside and around the block without getting wet for most of it.

A whole day of strong wind is the danger. All of the softwood trees will start to snap in a few hours if it picks up, probably about 10-20 feet up the trunk. A lot of them will end up in houses, on cars, across powelines and roads. Streetlights, road signs, and billboards will all start going down, too.

ChubbyTiger: 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?

Hence Frakenstorm. It's unnatural.


There's nothing unnatural about it. It's remarkably powerful, but the process is not unnatural or even unusual.

Yes, I am very glad that my undergraduate adviser told me the first or second time I met with him that I probably shouldn't bother with the forecasting track, because he thought it would bore me. He was probably right and I know I'm much happier in grad school than I would be trying to forecast in Bumblefark, Idaho or wherever.

They seem to have backed off that a bit. Several days ago when they first started taking about this monster, they were saying it was going to smack into a cold front/snow storm and there would be a snow hurricane, but haven't heard that yesterday or today, other than they snow in the Appalachians of Kentucky area.
