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.




/facepalm

Yeah, because eleventy tornadoes ripping through miles of crops does the same amount of damage as one hurricane hitting the most populated areas in the country.

rickythepenguin: his kind of thing could easily be proved/disproved by a quick Google trip, but......isn't there some kind of story of how the Tomb Guards have only left the post like, three times in history?



Huh. As close as I could come to confirm/deny.


article from last yaer wehn Irene rolled thru DC:

Though hurricanes are rare in the mid-Atlantic, this isn't the first time this decade the Old Guard has had to deal with such extreme weather. In September 2003, Hurricane Isabel ripped through the nation's capital with winds gusting up to close to 60 miles per hour. The storm killed 10 people in Virginia and one in Maryland. Despite the driving rain and windy conditions, the tomb remained guarded.

Still, safety will be a top priority for the cemetery. "We're not putting a soldier's life at risk," Miller said.

CipollinaFan: I've been thinking about writing a syfy original movie called SNOWICANO - where a blizzard and hurricane converge on an erupting volcano.

I`d watch it.


Get a snowboarder vs. skier race into it with at least one of them making a wrong turn into the lava, and I'd watch the hell out of it.

ariseatex: 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.


As long as I have curtains, I can subvert that. I only have blinds in my windows here, so I'm up around 8 at latest pretty much every day. Which works, since I have a 9 am class and it takes about 15 minutes from when I get in my car til I get to the classroom.

I was in Burke, VA for Irene, it was way-overhyped. I ended up getting trashed on hurricanes to kill the boredom.

Depends on the store.. Lowe's (maybe Home Depot too) are considered FEMA Stores, which means in the event of a natural disaster or emergency, they are required to stay open (as long as they aren't affected by said disaster) and workers are to report.. When we used to get snow emergencies in Toledo, Ohio I would have to still report to work and if I got pulled over I would just show him my Lowe's ID.. It pretty much sucked..

It's not. They're not retail and they're not one of those. They could close, and they discussed it, but they wouldn't do it. They are closing early now, though.

just occured to me. Statue of Liberty just turned 225 years old. Shes an old structure.

If she were knocked down, doesn't that lend some credence to the idea that God really doesn't want obama to be president?

Netflix has a very good National Geographic doc streaming at the moment, called Arlington: Field of Honor. It deals with the cemetery as a whole, but there's also an interesting & informative section on the Tomb of the Unknowns & the Guard.

He stood on his toes and reached as high as he could, had to be eight or nine feet above the ground. He also showed how high the water was during Irene, which was only like a foot above the ground.
