styckx: Atlantic City


Is it so very wrong to wish that everything associated with Trump gets washed away, vaporized, and salt water sown in its fields? (while the rest of the area is easily reparable)

marius2: The cold is rolling in here too, considering even putting a shirt on.
12 Celsius, which is 50 something in Fahrenheit in Chesapeake, VA

Hope we get a hurrblizzardurr, but I doubt it will get cold enough quick enough.


It is my greatest wish for the couple years that I am here that there be snow. Not necessarily a blizzard, but snow. I want to watch everyone freak out. They already busted out the winter coats when it was about 50 a couple weeks back. And my classmate (the only other new grad student in my department this year) is from Louisiana. I'm a huge fan of schadenfreude in which no one is in real danger, but everyone is panicking.

netcentric: Luthien's Tempest: Shyla: Fark 8 pages while I was gone, so much to catch up on. Everyone still kicking?

Still going strong here in Hampton, VA. Even managed to get a few hours of sleep.

How are the Strawberry Banks ? I love to see that sign on my way to VB


I actually don't know where that is :( But if strawberries are involved, I am so in. I've only lived here for about two months and honestly haven't explored as much as I should have. I know my way to the beaches (I did a summer program in the area a couple years back), but I haven't even gotten to any of them... Damn, I'm boring... ;)

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

That's not good.

Really? I mean, because, that's a lot of storms they underscored...


Super Typhoon Tip laughs at these assumptions.

Also, I'm guessing this storm will kill less people than last year's tornado breakouts, and your standard no'easter (Stupid men going out and having heart attacks).

Good to hear. As a meteorologist, you're probably getting a kick out of this.

All us met folks are. I'm just happy to be a researcher and not an operational forecaster, myself.

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.

My main reason for going to grad school and getting my Ph.D.: Forecasting meteorology = shift work.


You sound like my classmate...

I grew up the daughter of a night-shift nurse, so I doubt that shift work would bother me that much. I've been having meals and doing family stuff around shift work since I was born, so...

I liked research when I did some as an undergrad, and I would like to teach, so I figured grad school was probably a good choice.

for weather reasons or some such?

My problem is, I can't sleep during the day. Doesn't matter how late I go to bed, I wake up at sunrise. Always have. Shift work = random sleep schedule, and I don't work well that way.

I was stationed out of Bremerton, WA. 30-foot waves is just a little bit of a roll.

The 100' pines in my yard are weaving around like drunken sailors. Lost 5 oaks last October, got 2 left. Not much rain yet. Governor Molloy invited the press conference attendees to yell at the utilities people as his exit line. Got a generator this time, but if we're out for another 12 days I should have no problem rounding up the neighbors with their torches and pitchforks to head over to CL&P.

Yup. It took everything I had not to openly laugh at my neighbor leaving her apartment all bundled up to start her car to get it warmed up and then running back inside.

Leaving my department's building that first time it got to around 70, I came across a group of girls complaining about how absolutely freezing it was outside.

Just went out and took some pictures up the block. It's already flooded more than usual and we haven't even hit the worst of it yet. I'll try to put them up soon.

The alternate road isn't even close to flooding so I'm still not worried.
 
2012-10-29 12:27:18 PM
Update from about 10 miles southwest of Baltimore: Now coming up on 24 straight hours of rain. It's picked up from last night/this morning, but not too intense yet. Starting to get a little gusty but also not too bad at this point.

Haven't lost power yet, but I will at some point this afternoon. No worry of flooding as I live on a hill, but the lower parts of town will (they always do) & I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow. And would you believe that just in the space of these few sentences a pretty strong gust blew through.

Yea, I got this too, this morning.

First 'cold' morning of the year, I went outside in shorts at 630, and it was like 61 degrees. BEAUTIFUL! My neighbors were wearing winter coats.

Wussies.
