Pish, it's just SNOW....it will melt.
Oh, wait....

Anyone else think that Mother Nature is trying to clean up the toilet bowl that is the Tri-State area??

This storm was a piece of cake on my commute last night. My train line has been down since Sandy, so it only took me 4 hours to get home last night from the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

I got a flat tire driving home in it at 1130 last night...I got a ride home, but my car is probably plowed in right now. I don't even want to think about it. I'm just thankful I have power...lots of people still didn't have it back from the hurricane, and more lost power last night because of this snow storm. I'm not sure I've ever seen 8 inches of snow this early in the season before.

Don't know about NY but we got nearly a foot of snow in CT last October. The leaves were still on the trees and the damage was amazing. No power for a week or more and lots of fun.

/It's been a farking madhouse all week so far


I was on a bus by 4PM. Told my boss I'd log in from home, which I did. On the way home, heard the dispatch advising of a break down in the Lincoln. I think if you are stupid enough to drive a car that is on the verge of breaking down into a Hudson River crossing, the punishment should be that your car is unceremoniously bulldozed out of the tunnel until it is a pile of useless debris, which then needs to be removed from the premises at the driver's expense.

I also think the HOV restrictions at the tunnels should be made permanent.

And that NJ Transit should spend less capital on palatial rail stations and transfer stations and more money on hardening their systems against barely Cat -1 storms. Another tunnel under the Hudson would be nice too, but our governor didn't think that was important. Yet, he sure seems to care about the "people of New Jersey" these past few weeks. I haven't seen him at the PA or Secaucus Transfer Station yet.

End rant. I guess what I am really trying to say is, fark this and I am tired of this place.

Only a few inches of snow in Ridgewood. I can't imagine that there is 2 feet of snow less than 20 miles from where I am but I guess it's not impossible.

Would be really nice if they extended the No. 7 train under the Hudson to Seacaucus, and finally completed the Bergen-Hudson Light Rail so that it actually enters Bergen County.

Last Halloween we had maybe an inch of snow on the ground in central Jersey and it melted the next day, but the real problem was that there were still leaves on the trees that just collected the snow and then broke the trees under the weight. At least Sandy got rid of most of the leaves last week.

Fissile: You live in Ridgewood? How the fark do you afford the taxes? Taxes on my cousin's house in the Ridgewood are $27K.

Your cousin must live west of the tracks in a nice house. Mine are less than half that. I bought a small house for the location: close to town and the train (which just got a $40M station it didn't really need and is inoperable right now anyway).

Taxes in north jersey in general are high. We looked in Rutherford and the taxes were comparable to Ridgewood for the house / property you got. When we were looking in Hoboken we saw $10k for a 2/2 1000 sqft, and that was before you add building maintenance on top of it.

2012-11-08 10:39:16 AM  
Yet you hear nothing at all of a storm that's about to hit another part of the US with 125 MPH gusts and over a foot of snow. It's just like when a 5.0 earthquake hits the east coast. It's major news out there but when a 5.0 hits California we just roll over and go back to sleep. It seems like the east coast is completely overwhelmed by something that just gets shrugged off in the rest of the states.

California storm warning

I am aware that Sandy was bad, I am comparing this to the storms that are about to hit right now and the apparent discrepancy in coverage.

=======================

Yes, west of the tracks. Nice house? OK, house, but in my opinion, not worth the million they paid for it. Yes, they both work in the financial sector in the City.....take the train in daily. Yes, I know all about the rebuilt train station. I ride the bike path from Rochelle Park, up to Ridgewood at least twice a month.

A bit ingenuous to quote only the conditions predicted above 7000 feet. That's a weather report for the somewhat remote Lake Tahoe area. A mountain blizzard isn't news; major devastation in an enormous urban area most definitely is.

I've done that, it adds a good 30-40 minutes on to the commute. The West Side highway to the Holland Tunnel is usually pretty quick. It helps that I'm moving the opposite direction of most traffic once I hit Mid-town.

I have never had a problem with the gas service in my area even when the power was out for a week with Sandy, the gas was still flowing, we just shut everything off because of the electric pilot lights. We already have a small gasoline generator we used for necessities, but that is not a long term solution because we live on the ass end of our town and our power goes out more often then it should. We have too many trees nearby for wind to be practical and not enough sunlight hits the roof for solar.

then redundancy is the key, make sure you get the kit to allow you to use propane tanks as well as natural gas. For heat look into wood burning stove, sounds like you have plenty of fuel arround

yeah converting the natural gas to propane is a matter of connectors,and I plan to have a backup propane tank installed for the generator. we have fireplaces, so heat isn't really a problem.
the lack of electricity kills me because I work from home so I lose money if I don't have power for my computers, and the voltage on a gas generator that isn't hardwired into the houses systems can fluctuate a bit too much for my tastes.

I have never had a problem with the gas service in my area even when the power was out for a week with Sandy, the gas was still flowing, we just shut everything off because of the electric pilot lights. We already have a small gasoline generator we used for necessities, but that is not a long term solution because we live on the ass end of our town and our power goes out more often then it should. We have too many trees nearby for wind to be practical and not enough sunlight hits the roof for solar.

then redundancy is the key, make sure you get the kit to allow you to use propane tanks as well as natural gas. For heat look into wood burning stove, sounds like you have plenty of fuel arround

yeah converting the natural gas to propane is a matter of connectors,and I plan to have a backup propane tank installed for the generator. we have fireplaces, so heat isn't really a problem.
the lack of electricity kills me because I work from home so I lose money if I don't have power for my computers, and the voltage on a gas generator that isn't hardwired into the houses systems can fluctuate a bit too much for my tastes.

You need an army of hamsters. They could power your pc and if thing are really tough, be dinner. MMMMm grilled hamster.


You just made me remember this Geico commercial

Rhames: HA! Typical North Dakota winter, but backwards. It's usually Snow first, then more snow, and more and more and more. Then a flood, while fighting the flood, MORE SNOW!


and then the mosquitoes start, followed by us Manitobans invading for shopping

I've lived in the NYC area all my life and I've never seen the natural gas service go out.


Earthquakes and extended power outages (or widespread floods) will take it out. Otherwise, it is more robust than the electrical grid, and less likely to be out for more localized events.

If you absolutely can't or don't want to deal with gas generators, it's the way to go.

You know Obama inherited Sandy from Bush.

See, Obama may have won, but you guys in NJ and NY are getting a free month of previews of the Libertarian Channel.

Why are douchbags pushing their defeated political agendas in here? I thought the Politics tab was created for a reason: kind of like a chaff filter for retards.

Why the "Unlikely" tag? There is nothing "unlikely" about this; one of the worst things about Sandy, which I thought everyone realized at the time, was that it was making people homeless, making holes in houses, and taking away heat and power just as winter was setting in.

I'm as much into Schadenfreude as the next farker, but there is nothing particularly amusing about this story.

Up to 3 inches? In Wisconsin we call that a "dusting".

Generac. Pricy, but worth it. Just make sure your electrician installs a 3-pole transfer switch, or if you get a model with an integral switch, that it's 3-pole. Most electricians will install a 2-pole transfer switch, as it's easier, cheaper, and more readily available. The only problem is that you have to turn your generator off when the linemen come to fix the power, or you shock the nice men on the bucket trucks. Neutral return is a biatch.

No, my doctor warned me about salt intake way back in 2000 after all the over dosing by Gore supporters

Oh goody. Another opportunity for NY whore it up for attention.

Don't forget to take shiatty pics with Instagram and blog about how nobody has ever had to deal with this kind of weather before.

Ok, I wasn't a fan of either candidate but this has to be said.

When you're trying to change someones political views (which is almost impossible) posting a picture like thia does not help your cause and it most certainly makes your situation worse.

You may want to refrain from using this picture in the future, especially when the republican party thinks its too racist.
