This would be a Code Red on FEMA's Waffle House Index, if you DNRTFA.
 
2018-09-12 01:49:32 PM  
There is even a Waffle House Index that many, including FEMA, use to determine the severity of a storm.

I wonder what FEMA uses in NJ. The 24 hour diner is closed?

/seriously, we don't have any Waffle Houses

If the Waffle House closes you're f*cked.

Going to be kind of hard closing up here. Our doors don't have locks on 'em as we're open 24 hours a day and don't never need 'em locked....
 
2018-09-12 01:55:15 PM  
Welp. They boned.
 
2018-09-12 01:55:54 PM  
You're in the shiat, now.

Freakin' waffle house closed.  It's the end of the world.

Great. Now where am I supposed to drive to for food after drinking all night?

I was just sittin' at the counter and the door was open and the wind kicked in, blew a waffle off someone's plate, right into my forehead!

They waffle house is simply a stand in for places that don't have greasy diners. But they have corporate resources behind the basic idea concept of 'greasy 24 hour diner' so they can manage to stay open under extreme circumstances. Also, all their employees are felons and scared of going back, so they are more likely to risk going into work.
 
2018-09-12 01:56:56 PM  
I'd close up too if i was about to be flooded by a superfun-and-pigshiat shiatstorm.

That's like pulling down the Coburg cow in Charleston, SC.  If that comes down, shiats getting real.

I don't do WaHo very often but the times I have I've rarely had a bad experience.  It's not easy to fark up what they serve, it's consistent, and they're usually as clean as any other restaurant I've been in.  And the servers and staff are almost always very friendly.
 
2018-09-12 01:59:50 PM  
Is there a storm coming?
 
2018-09-12 01:59:51 PM  
I've sat out a couple of horrendous thunderstorms in Waffle Houses while traveling. Kinda relaxing, watching rain pound on the glass so hard you can't see the parking at all, thunder shaking the building, and the staff just cheerfully went about their business and I had coffee and food until storm passed.
When they close, all hell is coming through.

Get a chain and a padlock.

It looks like it's slowing down which is bad news.  More rain, more surge, more sustained winds on weakened structures.  If you live in a flood zone, even inland due to the rain, or the thought of going without power for a week is terrifying, you should leave now.

Isn't that in Frank Underwood's district. I heard he died.

I've lived in the Carolinas all my life and have seen exactly one Waffle House closed.  And that one was gutted by a fire and reopened within a few weeks.
 
2018-09-12 02:02:40 PM  
They better get the prayer machine spun up to maximum. The only thing that works against storms like this is coordinated prayer and lots of it.

I have it on good authority that no more than 30% of their employees are felons, and 15% have never even been convicted of a misdemeanor.

Most (if not all) WHs run on natural gas, so even if electricity goes out, they can still operate, thus why they're able to go 'yellow' and still serve a limited menu when everyone else is shut down.

Full shutdown means they realize even they can't do it.

All brawling has temporarily been relocated to Dollar General Stores. Loot or fight. Drunk's choice.

Oh no. The gas station bathrooms with waffle irons on the counters closed. How horrible.

( I used to live in Pensacola. Waffle Houses were almost across from each other. I'd rather eat at Denny's. )

Sometimes I like living in the NE Megalopolis.  Last time we got anything akin to a serious storm was 2012, and back then I got a trickle of water in my basement.

Irene f'ed all my stuff up as I was out of town before it came through and I had zero prep time.  Basement was full of water, so the cats couldn't hit the litter box.  So, they used my leather sofa as a stand buy.  Lightning hit the pole in front of my house and knocked out all my appliances.  Insurance company ripped me off big time.  Power was out for 5 days and we have a well, so no shower.  Flushed the toilet with water from the tub (which I filled as a joke), showered at work, and ate cocktail weenies night after night in the dark with no TV or internet.

Heard they were calling for 30" of rain in some parts.  There's just to hunk of ground capable of soaking all that up.  Those people are in for a ShietShow for sure.

Wawa?  When I worked at one, we were open 24/7/365 and I it pretty much took an act of God to get one to close up for the day.
 
2018-09-12 02:07:40 PM  
Latest reports show it is weakening..

Let's hope that continues and the disaster porn fetishists are disappointed

Same here.  The folks that work there are the people that Farkers claim to be looking out for in some threads and slam for being Waffle House workers in other threads.

Anyway, Waffle House is closed?

There are 2 near me. One in a absolute shiat part of town and one in the suburbs. The one in the suburbs is nasty and the more urban one is like how you described. It routinely gets "A" or "B" health grades.

I'm surprised they closed this early. Usually they wait until they run the supplies down first.

Waffle House, Walnut St. Cary, NC Circa 1996

One night I couldn't sleep. Completely restless. My girlfriend suggested I go to the Waffle House around the corner. So I did. It's like 2AM...

I sit at the counter and place my order. As I am waiting a guy and a girl come in. They are drunk. The girl sits next to me on my right at the counter.

"Hey, we just had sex! Wanna smell my fingers?" She asks me.
Before I could say a word, she sticks her hand up to my nose.

"Yeah, smells like sex alright." I reply.

"Damn straight there, skippy!" She said and she turns around to talk to her boyfriend.

There was a trucker sitting to my left. We started talking about the best truck/rest areas in the country to get a good looking cheap clean hooker.

He says, "Yeah, I've seen my share of some really shady crack ho's at some rest areas but the cleanest ho's I've seen were off I-40 in Nebraska, so if you're ever in Nebraska, stop by..tell them "Big John" sent ya..."

If anything, Waffle House is a great place for a good story...
