Piers Corbyn's Weather prediction
(Excerpt) Read more at twitpic.com ...
The PNW rain train I mentioned very evident on that satellite pic.
You’ve got that right.
A full moon ALWAYS has an ffect on tides................sheesh
And if you think you can even touch me with global warming...give it a try. I will make you chase your tail so much you'll make butter. Only climatologists on the Gov't dole and clueless TV "weather broadcasters" believe in AGW. Most operational mets do not....and I am one of that vast majority.
No, no, NO! You misunderstand!
The storm was made, not made up, by Obama's NOAA using HAARP to control it. They took control of Cheney's weather machine, and are steering it into areas where they have already herded the Dems into early voting. It is an evil plot to disenfranchise Republicans who were waiting for election day to vote. < /tinfoil.
Unfortunately, I DID see a video along those lines at Infowars last night; too idiotic even for George Noory to broadcast.
Every media outlet is using fake Doppler and such animations that look real. They are not disclosing that they are models and not real. Very deceptive.
Go jump in a lake.
Better yet - come on over here and help us removing debris when the flood waters recede.
Because I’m not blaming the full moon for storm surge? Does it matter whether its full or not? It’s still there with the same gravitational effect.
It’s not half as powerful as Katrina was supposed to be. If the old levies hadn’t failed, that bowl would have stayed okay. Just because it is the east coast the MSM is putting on a spectacular show. People are acting like it is the first time water ever fell from the sky.
The hyperbole is what is amazing. ‘We never ever ever ever ever saw anything this bad in the history of the planet!’
11” storm surge... Katrina had 30” as someone pointed out and if those levies didn’t fail, nobody would remember it.
Nobody is doubting that there is a storm and that’s its dumping a lot of water. That isn’t exactly unprecedented. We get storms here. Power gets knocked out. Twisters are formed. We watch for rotation on weather radar. We marvel at how hail can fall when its spring or summer. People lose roofs, car windows shatter, low lying areas flood (we have well known flood plains and such, everyone knows where they are when the pump-houses and ravines aren’t enough)
Acting like its the first time, as if nobody has ever dealt with it before or as if they are totally unprepared has to be amazingly short-sighted.
Cities have snow plows and sand trucks because winter comes.
Flood plains, ravines, pumphouses etc are there because heavy rains do come.
It’s happened before.
We have fire departments. We don’t have TV news crews freaking out at every house fire as if its the first time anyone had ever seen fire before.
You know what else was in the news? Electric utility trucks from states all over the midwest being dispatched to the east in preparation for the damage. I am sure that every state and city is on alert. I am sure that evacuations have happened. I am sure that generators and supplies have been sold.
It’s not the end of the world. We have experienced things like this before. Let’s not freak out about it. Like a football player who goes nuts in the end zone... “stop it... just hand the ball to the ref and get to the sideline... act like you have been there before”
I don’t lack empathy. I am just being optimistic about it.
Kind of late there? I can still go to bed and get almost 8 hours of sleep before taking the kids to school in the morning!
This is the worst trash I have ever seen posted. This is a dangerous storm. Get you head out of you butt. Obviously you are not on the East Coast. Ocean City is ALREADY seeing flooding and it has not even hit yet. I recommend you pull this trash.
It is going to have a negative economic influence.
Your epic denial and poo pooing of this storm reaches the same level of ridiculousness as the media’s non coverage of Benghazi.
Storm or not...the media AIN”T gonna cover Benghazi anyway.
Your fellow FReepers are gonna be directly affected by this storm. This massive, once in a lifetime, major Big F’in deal of a storm. It will cost lives. It will destroy property. Your tax dollars will go to put back what Sandra destroys....and to pay the salaries of the useless azz FEMA bastages that will work it.
But more importantly...again...it will affect your fellow FReepers...your fellow Americans...your fellow human beings. Some may lose friends and family. Some may lose houses..belongings...picture albums.
Your denial only serves to make YOU look ignorant and classless. Your placing politics above human suffering only serves to make YOU look classless and shallow.
If you got a beef with the media...take it to the media. Bitch at them. Like I said....even if Sandra didn’t exist...and she does...the media still will ignore Benghazi. It’s what they do.
Your and the others on the forum posting such ridiculousness only serves to give us all a bad name. You’re making us all look like ignorant jackasses. Do us a favor. Take it to CNN.com. At least your senseless braying would fill some purpose.
Every word you are posting here could be used to educate another American about Benghazi instead...like you claim the media ain’t doing.
Have a good day...sir.
I hope those NOAA aircraft dump soap, because this is the best chance to clean up NYC in a while.
did you miss 107?
You still don't get it.
There isn’t enough soap on this planet to accomplish anything significant in that city. :)
Agreed, this is nuts and makes us look so.
Everybody knows about Libya already....it has been almost 2 months. This storm is not even a week yet. Stop being selfish for God’s sake. Libya will get tons more exposure than Sandy and already has had 100 X the amount.
I am not in denial of the storm, nor am I pooing on it. I am pooing on the hyperbole of it.
It’s gonna rain. I lived in Smyrna, TN 2 years ago and watched that water go past me on the Stones River. That feeds Percy Priest Reservoir which supplies Nashville Proper. Water will flood, especially in a controlled area. 15in at my house in 48hrs.
Just be ready. Live by the water, take your chances. This storm is more about water than anything. It is also an event that can be easily managed. The Hype is overwhelming. Let me know if 40 tornadoes rip through like Elana had produced.
Negative economic influence? Not for everyone....
There is a reason why the media hypes storms and that is about money. Sad but true. Get really creative, and take it a few steps further. If you had connections, you don’t think you could profit from real or fake storms?
Hell folks. Our own govt pulled that YouTube stunt and got away with it for weeks. They manipulated it, and apparently nobody fact checks....
I hear all these science geeks telling us that this that and the other is going to happen. The same junk science we laugh at when it is their global warming crap.
Should we really believe this.? Do we have a choice? It appears like speaking I’ll of a storm is now immoral or illegal. Like a flat earth thing....
And if it wasn't Sandy...they would be covering the World Series or some other story.
Don’t have to worry about the kid and school - by 4pm Friday school was cancelled for Monday and Tuesday. Some of the schools are needed for shelters, which opened at 2pm - and are already being utilized. And the worst of it hasn’t really gotten here yet. Tomorrow morning’s high tides are going to be killer - because tonight’s were no picnic
There is a group of us on facebook taking turns with updates - another 20 minutes or so and then I’m to bed until high tides start about 9am.
What about sea temperatures? Isn’t that what drives a hurricane, at least in cyclonic motion?
The current NOAA temp maps show warmer water much further out, particularly once past the Outer Banks/Hatteras. The waters for some 200 plus nautical miles off NJ/NY and further N show 60 deg. F So it shouldn’t keep up cylconic motion, right? Besides the cold temperature of it, is it the force of the arctic air coming down pushing the disturbance onshore— this seems to be what the projection is showing.
This being “extra-tropical” makes this nothing like the 35 plus years experience I’ve had (and many hurricanes/tropical storms been through) in Caribbean island and Gulf of Mexico fishing/sailing.
Sandra .... *snicker*
Sandra Fluke will accuse Republicans of preventing skyscrapers of being protected by refusing to fund giant condoms for downtown NYC buildings...
That's one of the things I both love and hate about FR. There are people who see the world ONLY through their glasses...and anyone that doesn't is a down-right idiot.
N.O. is below Lakefront. Any storm water within the metro area has to be pumped out. Once the surge breached the leaves, it was up to the roof tops and higher in lower areas.
How about I let you know when the $ damage amounts surpass your flood and Elena’s tornadoes.
Thanks for being one of the few voices of reason on this thread.
It is so irritating when the tinfoil hat group comes out and refuses to see basic staring you in the face facts.
I agree that we shouldn't freak out about this storm, but at the same time, the seriousness should also not be downplayed, such as you're continuing to do on this thread.
People are going to die, and there will be billions in property damage. There will be private horrors for some people, that decades won't wash away.
Those of us who are fortunate enough to be many states removed from this cataclysm should grant a little respect for those who about to endure a powerful, and possibly life changing event.
Sure, the media is going to wet their panties about this, but we all knew they would. That's hardly even worth mentioning in a place like this.
I’m wrong about what?
That it has rained before?
I’m amazed that you didn’t choose to live at Cape Hatteras.
Of course if you need a hand with a good chainsaw, I will be there.
I know how NOLA flooded...where...why. That doesn't change the surges. 12' at Lakefront and 16' (Est.) around Plaq. Parish. The reason it was up to the rooftops is...well...when you build a city in a bathtub and water starts coming over the side...you flood to your rooftops.
The weather’s nice here in Arizona.
When we lived in Virginia Beach, we prepped for storms and LEFT town. No need to stick around and whine about it. No need to put our children in danger. And since school was cancelled, it was a great time for a visit to grandparents. AND we could watch TWC idiots stand between high rise hotels on the beach so they got the greatest wind effect possible for the cameras.
I hope the people along the East Coast have heeded the warnings and have left areas vulnerable to flooding. And I pray that these storms fizzle out and do less damage than forecast.
Yeah, same ole same ole. That's what the nuclear scientists said when they told some of us that the radiation coming from Japan was less than their microwave.
If the hurricane hits right on target I will be cheering the accurate predictions of the weather people but not for what happens to the people in the areas.
I have lived in this area for more than 4 decades and have seen landfall targets NOT happen as predicted. My suspicions have always been that it will hit Conn or more up the coast. Maybe they are right, maybe they are wrong. I could care less if you agree or disagree with my suspicions. I am NOT a weatherman.
I do NOT believe in man-made Global Warming either. I believe in God.
Cool. Quite frankly I hope you are right.
Your dollar amounts started about 8 hours ago. Explain that.
People are going to die (people die everyday),
and there will be billions in property damage. After the last 4 years it will be miniscule compared to the damage Obama brought on
There will be private horrors for some people, that decades won’t wash away.
Hurricane Sand-usky... and not being a pessimist on this thread will change this how?
In essence...that. Some do not think it hyperbole. You do. But...in typical freeper fashion...you can't just agree to disagree. Instead...everyone else is an idiot and you are brilliant.
Enough said about this....
I'll explain it when I can make sense of your post.
does anybody remember michelle obama saying you should vote early in case your toilet over flows or something?
You are quite a young one. Explain to me my RADAR’s refractive index and why it would matter? ? ?
Let me know if you actually have a forcast job. Scaring people for a living is bullshit.
I can just see it now . . . By Wednesday, the news will break to “where’s my free $h%t”. D.C., N.Y., Philly, etc will get more free stuff after being declared a disaster area by the Administration. New Orleans(Katrina) won’t have nothing on this one. Not to mention the inner-city crime that goes with it. Of course, the “Savior” in the WH will see to their needs. May as well add another trillion to the national debt. You’ll see.
NYC transit has stopped, I imagine this powerful storm has knocked out your sense of communication.
I don’t think I have called anyone names.
If people want to bend over and take Hurricane Sandusky, they can go ahead.
As soon as the storm is over people will clean up and others will be passing out blankets, meals and coffee and helping to rebuild. This is NORMAL, this is what happens in this country.
What we need to do is rename The Romney/Ryan political tours to associate it with gathering aid for the hurricane victims. The liberals will explode over that. I’ve been trying to think of a good name of the tour so that whenever I tweet their appearances I will add the catchy phrase in the title of the articles.
I know. I realized that as I read on. Have a good day....stay dry. It is very windy and rainy in Annapolis. Work was called off tomorrow for me and most everyone in Maryland. They even closed all the Wa-Wa’s in Maryland.....
(people die everyday)
I rest my case. You are without a doubt, one of the biggest buffoons on this website - proven by your statement above. You've added nothing to this conversation but irritation and drama. You're a net drag on an otherwise adult discussion, GeronL.
I can only wonder if you'll still be here snickering when the casualty reports start coming in. What a miserable excuse for a human being you are.
NYC transit stopped because the mayor ordered it to stop. Not because of damage that had been caused.
