How did we ever even try to understand anything about global weather patterns before satellites were around?

I could watch stuff like that all day.

They could've easily increased the speed by 500%... I'm not going to sit thru 3 and half minutes of a slowly moving graphic.

Good call. That would only leave you 22 and a half minutes to get to the gym!

We didn't. We hardly put even a second of thought on any given day about anything that was happening more than a day's walk away.

Pyrimid builders would probably disagree.

Maybe not the first ones, though.

Remember, kids, NOT a hurricane. Only us po folks on the Gulf Coast get hurricanes. If the East Coast got hit by a hurricane, they'd get stuck with the 3-5% deductible instead of the usual $1000 or so. Can't have that happening to a moneyed electorate now, can we? It's a Superstorm, not a hurricane.

I hummed the Jaws theme while I watched.

My jaw did not drop. I want my money back.

I like the idea of a future where NYC has to endure Wintercanes.

It's not like we're dumb enough to live in a typical hurricane zone that's BELOW sea level. Those people are farktards.

Just one that's sometimes below sea level.

I got five on it.

I'm at the point now where I absolutely refuse to have another Romney ad forced on me before I can watch anything on YouTube, so I'll have to miss out on that one.
 
Al!

You're either trolling or ignorant. Or both. It isn't just a title change. The fundamental properties of the storm change. The energy sustaining a tropical cyclone is from heat released through condensation. The energy sustaining a post-tropical cyclone is from differing pressure gradients along the vertical axis, a process called baroclinity. Essentially, Sandy became a Nor' Easter.

It isn't an uncommon event, and it can go the other way. In 1991, Hurricane Grace was absorbed by a Nor' Easter, with the entire system becoming a post-tropical cyclone. The storm came down out of the northwest and lashed the north east coast of the US and a bit of south eastern Canada before moving out to sea in a south easterly direction. While out to sea it caught warm waters and intensified through condensation, becoming an unnamed tropical cyclone. The storm has several names: The 1991 Perfect Storm, The Halloween Nor' Easter and The No-Name Hurricane, among others.

Jawdropping? I can get this from my local weatherman about 4 times a day.
