Dear CNN and The Weather Channel,

If there really are people out there that need to be told to not touch downed power lines, it may be best to just remain silent and allow nature to take it's course.

Also, stop being butthurt because people are not buying your fear and are out walking around. This makes you look silly.

Doesn't it have to be females?

So more like Hillary, Margaret, Angela or Beatrix.

No, since they did have one called Ivan, but on that theme:

Boudicca, Elizabeth Báthory, Aileen Wuornos or Carol M. Bundy.

Rain has all but stopped.  Wind is still gusting fairly impressively, but, I think, slowing down a bit.

Been downgraded anyway--it's a tropical storm now.  Poor Irene...so much hoopla, so few hoops.

Still and all, she's claimed about what? 6 or 7 lives so far?  And they're SAYING on the talking bobblehead shows that TRONE might yet see some action...and that most of the lives are lost in the AFTERMATH of this sort of disaster...not necessarily DURING.

Still and all--stay safe and whatnot, East Coast maniacs.  Y'all seem to be doing fine, so far...*knocks on wood*

(I am just glad that the two major disasters to the areas I just visited this last month happened once I was well clear of there.  :lol:)

We just got on the weather forecast that since Irene is a low-pressure area, and it's moving to greenland and then to iceland, that a high pressure area will swoop on down to us and will give us NICE WEATHER NEXT WEEK WH00000000000000000

Finally cause this summer sucked so far, weather-wise

Just showed EoCland on TWC. Doesn't New Bedford have the most secure harbor in the nation or something like that?

That depends.  Are we talking storm surges or heroin traffic?

Are you watching TWC? They aren't too happy about shit in the hahbah.

I thought there was a hurricane coming?

I've splashed in mudpuddles on breezy days and seen more damage as a result. This shit is weak as fuck and I'm a little pissed that my flight got canceled because of, well, a rainy day.

You're in Maine. You're not getting anything good from this. Meanwhile, I'm watching trees doing backbends in Providence.

Ironically, given its name, God hates Providence.

I suspect it's because he once had a meal cooked by a Johnson & Wales grad.

Also, it looks like it's about done here. We never lost power. Richter reported that when he walked by my place, I still had a roof but he wasn't sure about the windows. I'm going to request that we head over there shortly and see wtf happened.


Has anyone heard anything from Cram? The Hudson Valley is flooding and my friends in Westchester and Putnam counties are not doing well.

:spittake:

That's the first time in history, then, that anybody who lived in Westchester county was described as "not doing well".

I gotta get into the storm supply business. Those cats are clocking some serious loot off of all the scared statesiders who have NO idea what a for-real hurricane is.

HINT: It's not what just happened on the east coast of the US. In fact, anyone who wasn't in South Carolina for Hugo or Hawaii for Iniki has probably never experienced a major hurricane making landfall in the USA, unless one of you old-timers was around for Camille.

And no, Andrew, Ivan, and Bob don't count. by a long shot. And really, neither does Katrina. That was a human disaster, not a natural one.

Andrew was under-estimated because it was small, and turned out to be the goddamn finger of God, and Katrina was only a category 3 when it hit, people forget that. Those levees should never have failed. I've seen worse hit NOLA in my lifetime.

Andrew leveled neighborhoods with 175mph winds in style. Katrina had to have an unmanned barge slam a levee to flood the ghetto. In fact, Andrew hit NOLA as a 4 after it leveled Miami and carved a path across FL and it STILL didn't break the levees.

Ivan was a goddamn meteorological anomaly. That whole summer was fucked up for Florida.

Irene was Floyd Mark II. Huge storm with lots of water, but not strong.


Just went to my apartment, btw. I has survived (unfortunately). I was looking for a grant out of there.
