I had a frost last night and these people are worried about a little wall of water and 100 mile an hour winds, you would think they have never had a storm before. sheesh!http://www.picgifs.com/smileys/smile...ing-029488.gif
Yep, people in Jersey are such babies. The only ones worse are in NYC and where Linda#'s live. :biggrin-new:
Ody, last Halloween when NYC was hit by Irene, people were without power for weeks. That's not competency. In Florida, power is restored within 24 hours, in most cases.
Gophers do not do well in heavy rain!
Hurricane Sandy was headed north from the Caribbean, where it left nearly five dozen dead, to meet a winter storm and a cold front, plus high tides from a full moon, and experts said the rare hybrid storm that results will cause havoc over 800 miles (1,300 kilometers) from the East Coast to the Great Lakes.
The danger was hardly limited to coastal areas. Forecasters were far more worried about inland flooding from the storm surge than they were about winds. Rains could saturate the ground, causing trees to topple into power lines, utility officials said, warning residents to prepare for several days at home without power.
States of emergency were declared from North Carolina, where gusty winds whipped steady rain on Sunday morning, to Connecticut. Delaware ordered mandatory evacuations for coastal communities by 8 p.m. Sunday.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered New York City's transit service to suspend bus, subway and commuter rail service starting at 7 p.m. (2300 GMT) Sunday in advance of the storm. The city closed the subways before Hurricane Irene last year, and a Columbia University study predicted that an Irene surge just 1 foot (30 centimeters) higher would have paralyzed lower Manhattan.
Sounds like the Perfect Storm minus George Clooney
Considering that line goes almost over my head, I am not happy right now:
