Yikes. It looks like it's going to be a big one.
I remember A few hurricanes that have hit wher eI live (near Boston, Ma) and they were not fun. Not looking forward to this and I hope we get through it with as little damage as possible. If NY is declaring a SoE i wonder if Mass will be far behind.
Batton down the hatches!!!

I'm going to go put the lawn furniture away.

Thought I would add a link to this thread. There's an embedded video from History Channels Mega Disasters (hurricane in NY).

I think if I lived in the area, with all those people, I would be heading out of town right about now, instead of waiting for the off-chance there is a mandatory evac. (wouldn't want to get stuck in that traffic for the life of me)

This is getting to be too much. What's really going on?

2nd line.

Oh snap, I get it now!!! The nuclear reactors in that area. The earthquake earlier this week has the gov't up in arms. The threat isn't the storm. It's the reactors and weak infrastructure!

Hi, this is Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. The administration has alerted me that the al-Qaeda have been spotted riding atop Irene and it is therefore imperative that we evacuate the entire East Coast citizenry and "temporarily" place them into concentra----err, *insert unnecessary jargon here to make it sound fancy*.

The Media are really hitting this storm with full blown steam which really does make one wonder... is there something more to this and it's evident to me that there most certainly is! Is this the start of the 'come to us, we can protect you... in return we wan't your 100% obedience and your opinions erased from your minds...FOREVER!'

After the earthquake the other day, what are the odds that some of the infastructure in the area has been somewhat damaged? From what I saw on the tv, the damage looked very minimal, but, will that factor in to what this hurricane may do?

ETA - I just remembered the washington monument was closed

www.cnn.com...


Washington (CNN) -- The Washington Monument was closed indefinitely as engineers study damage and ways to repair cracks at the top of the capital's iconic structure caused by the 5.8-magnitude earthquake that rattled the East Coast this week.


What will the hurricane do to the momument?

I am in Hampton Va at 37.06N 76.37W. We are in the cross hairs for this storm. The National Guard has already been deployed to federal warehouse depots in the area. State of Emergency is declared in North Carolina and Virginia. Accomac county on the Eastern Shore is under voluntary evacuation at this time. Low lying areas of Norfolk are being urged to evacuate. Flood gates are being tested. Our highways have gates to reverse origin of traffic on major interstates if necessary. I hate that they keep talking about Storm of Historic Proportions. I do not want to experience that.

I keep hearing people say stuff like this but really, the Earth is billions of years old. A couple of years mean nothing.
Isn't it funny that, when we get "extreme weather" that all of the records for high temps, snow/rainfall, hurricanes et al are always really old? Like "this is the worst storm since 1938" or "Coming close to the record set in 1917".
We are a self-centered creature. We always place somee significance on the happenings of our day. We've had bad storms before, and we've had not so bad. We've had bad winters and mild winters, hot summers and mild summers.
There are so many variables involved in climate that to ascribe any one "reason" for changes (and they are, in context, minute) is foolish. Last summer we had 40 days of 90+ temps and everyone was saying "SEE!? Global Warming!" and yet this year? not that bad at all. We need to stop being so self-centered aboujt our vieew of this planet and understand that there are no constants. it is continually changing.
Now, as for "the end times"... There are no "end times". People have been saying this since the dawn of man... again, it's our self-centered point of view of our world. We all think we are the pinnacle of creation.
don't worry, the "end times" are not drawing near. Live your life, try to do good things, strive to be the best person you can be. that's all you have to do.
Don't sweat imaginary things.
