'Frankenstorm' Predicted to Slam East Coast: Hurricane/winter storm hybrid
Skye / The Associated Press ^ | October 25, 2012

Posted on 10/25/2012 1:55:10 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

An unusual nasty mix of a hurricane and a winter storm that forecasters are now calling "Frankenstorm" is likely to blast most of the East Coast next week, focusing the worst of its weather mayhem around New York City and New Jersey.

Government forecasters on Thursday upped the odds of a major weather mess, now saying there's a 90 percent chance that the East will get steady gale-force winds, heavy rain, flooding and maybe snow starting Sunday and stretching past Halloween on Wednesday.

Meteorologists say it is likely to cause $1 billion in damages...

These storms never show up.

It’s the ones they DON’T predict that always wipe you out.

Looks like Soros turned on his weather machine too early.

You see, it was supposed to turn west at Florida, churn along the Gulf Coast, and go ashore in Texas.

But, he got too anxious, and now it is going to hit the Eastern Seaboard instead.

Oh, so now I’m a “Frankenstorm”? Not very flattering.

Think about this...

If you were the Frankenstorm you’d be in the Bahama’s right now....

White sand...blue water...warm temperatures and cold Coronas....

Every generator was on its way out of Costco this morning. I guess we learned our lesson last year.

I prayed for rain in Philly on election day, not a Frankinstorm a week before. If it hits as hard as some models indicate, power could still be off in some areas on election day. If god has chosen to put an exclamation point on my request, who am I to argue?

Do not laugh

If the dhimmicrats can claim weather caused people to not be able to vote, they will extend the election

perhaps for weeks

Crater Lake? With an average snow depth of 550 inches a year,
this is almost normal. We have snow on all the mountains
surrounding Grants Pass.

Here in South central Maine we’ve had our WINCO / Honda 5500KW trifuel get us through several storms / power outages already, and it’s all gassed up and ready for this one.

About a month’s worth of rations in the bunker, and up here on a 420’ hill flooding shouldn’t be a big problem.

As long as the Lord keeps an eye on us and FEMA leaves us the heck alone, we ought to be all right.

I’m surprised the CPers haven’t made the claim that Hussein has *HAARP* under his control and produced this storm on purpose to get the news directed away from Bengazigate troubles....if *they* have...I missed it.
