Some cool videos. Literally.

Misery?

I thought the cool tag would have been more appropriate.

Working with people from the northeast part of the country, it seems like everything is this big ordeal, especially if it throws a wrench into their 10 to 3 work day routine.

If Kathy Bates is still out-and-about and breaking authors' feet with sledgehammers after massive snowstorms, sure.

I enjoyed the snowfall this year.  This is the first decent accumulation in three years.  The shoveling was irritating but that's what iPods are for.

Not really in the videos, but in the link that went to the pictures there sure was. I guess some parts of Mass also got flooding. Unfortunately you have to click quite a distance through the slide show to find them.

Oh, I'm sure plenty of guys named their dicks "Nemo" about ten years ago.

Must be some new definition of the word, then.

I feel for the unprepared on the east coast. But we have a term for this in the upper midwest. It's called any fricken day. Why are the east coast people such cry babies?

It's been snowing here since November, but then again I live in Finland. I think there is a glacier forming at the end of the parking lot.

I've heard that a snow storm is like sex -- you're never sure how long it will last or how many inches you'll get.

Ladies call me blizzard.

You're fun for the night but ruin the next day and hang around long after you've worn out your welcome?

If you used a shovel instead of an ipod it wouldn't take you as long.

Well, my friend's daughter was trapped for a few hours on the road in Middle Island, NY.  Her brain-dead father decided to go to Walmart and got stuck along w/a few dozen other cars.  The Fire Dept had to rescue all the people Friday night and, as of 2:30 yesterday, the cars were all still there.

That's about two miles from my house (Coram).  They had closed Middle Country Rd from 112 to rt 21 tonight beginning at about 4:00 in order to remove snow and cars, but it just reopened.

Probably because the hysterical turds freak out when it rains.

We got hit with just about as much snow a couple months ago in the first snowstorm of the season, and it barely made local news, let alone dominated national news for a week.

If your infrastructure wasn't two hundred years old and didn't completely suck balls you wouldn't have a problem when it rains or snows.

I can't speak for everyone in the NE, but we got 3 feet of snow yesterday. Stayed in all day, had whatever we needed ahead of time, dug out today. No big deal. I didn't ask for 24/7 Weather Channel coverage, but then again I'm not in NYC or Boston etc. Infrastructure in my town is fine.

Pretty much this. When I lived in Utah some fifteen years ago, this was a common occurrence. Roofs were caving in, and we literally carved a two level snow fort into the accumulation from one night.

The last ten years in Illinois were no picnic either. I have pictures somewhere of snow drifting up the side of the building I worked at - probably a good 10-12 feet high.

What I find interesting about this is how it demonstrates that global warming causes more moisture to be held in the atmosphere to be dumped like this without any regard at all for the fact that global warming also causes droughts.

SevenizGud: What I find interesting about this is how it demonstrates that global warming causes more moisture to be held in the atmosphere to be dumped like this without any regard at all for the fact that global warming also causes droughts.


That's because global warming is a misnomer. Climate change is what we're after. Some places get hotter, or colder, or wetter, or dryer than previously. Take the North Atlantic, for example. When the ice caps melt, they dump fresh water into the oceans. This disturbs the currents of warm and cold water, which in this case draws warm air to northwest Europe. The famed vineyards of France are further north than most of Maine. Without the North Atlantic Conveyor, France would look more like Siberia. What we're seeing now may be this effect: plenty of moist air flowing over the Northeast, but cooler.

No.

What we're seeing now is what we call "weather".

I'm in MA right now(south shore).The problem is the infrastructure. I haven't had power since Friday. At some point lines need to be put underground. Most of the trees are off of the roads by now.Although you still need to drive under many that are supported by messes of wires.I am unsure how good of a job NSTAR is doing throughout NE.Here very little is being done by the local NSTAR workers. The progress made so far has been made by out of state NSTAR workers, independent contractors , and good sumaritians.

You definitely don't work with people from the Northeast; I don't know anyone who works anything short of an 8 hour day, let alone 10 or 12 hrs. Most people I know are thankful if they work a 50 hr week.
