Hurricane Sandy is going to destroy all of the East Coast by Halloween. Take that Mayans! (sic).

If I disappear for days, it's likely because there's no power in most of CT, just like last year!

What makes it so? Making it so is what makes it so.

Come the storm and blow the flesh from this earth
Come the flood and wash away the flesh of this earth
Come the fire and burn the flesh of this earth
Make the earth upheaval and swallow up the flesh of this earth

Without terrible storms, what excuse would we have to build pillow forts?

This.

Plus any excuse I have to stay inside and eat soup and drink tea all day is also valid.

I don't know how it is in other parts of the northeast, but our supermarket overstocked on water and batteries in anticipation. Honestly, this was as good a reason as any to go out and grab a couple crank powered flashlights. Two years in a row with no power outages is unheard of.

Hooray - I participated in Disaster Capitalism(tm) today!

Managed to get some storm supplies this afternoon and it wasn't too bad. Looks like our local Home Depot ramped up the battery stock. We also bought Jesus candles from the Dollar store. They cost a buck, burn for ages and have the added bonus of being fortified with magical Catholic POWERZ! Mrs Mang & I shall spend our candlelit evenings under the protection of the Virgin Of Guadalupe.

Obama created the hurricane so he could cancel the election due to large-scale damage to the eastern seaboard, dissolve Congress and assume dictatorial powers.

FACT.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."
- R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before

Those Jebus candles used to burn for 7-9 days but they're all skinny and slanky now and the wax only comes about 3/4 of the way up. You're good for 2 days.

You know how a few months ago I discovered that I can quickly, easily and cheaply make my own lip balm out of ingredients I basically already have lying around the house anyway? Same basic deal with candles, except you have to buy wax and wicks. It's so ridiculously cheap and insanely easy to make your own candles (if you aren't concerned about them being pretty) that I recommend it very highly if you're anywhere that gets frequent power outages. You can make like 400 tealights in an hour for about $25 and be all set for a year. A decent tealight will burn for about 10 hours and does nicely sitting in the bottom of a mason jar.

Winning combination. Boston public closed and brookline public closed. That means work has a hurricane day :banana:

also gov patrick has declared a state of emergency and advised nonessential workers to stay home. Cant stay home though. Stuck at villagers with a ton of leftovers and abandoned party beer. :banana:
