We've got 50 mph winds here in E. Iowa right now... along with about a foot of new snow and temps dropping rapidly.

If the apocalypse comes, I hope it gets here before I have to move the snow in the morning.

Should we bid adieu to all those on the East Coast now, or wait another two hours?

The wind has been blowing harder than usual around Houston since last night. It’s a “blue norther” blowing through. Haven’t heard of any damage.

From my perspective I think they have something to worry about.

Hope it was just the transformers at the substation that blew, they should have a stock of replacements available.
Sounds like there could have been more damage though.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Oh, nevermind! Just see my tag line.

Is the end of the world supposed to start on the East Coast at midnight or at the international dateline? This might be the warm up pitch.

Title of article reminds of a little diddy called, “Fire In The Sky” from the CD, “To Touch The Stars.”
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ryd_p20XEU
Other songs on the CD can be heard here.
http://www.prometheus-music.com/thestars.html

I’m also fond of the song, “Yuri Gagarin” by Zia.
http://ziaspace.com/ZIA/mp3s/YuriGagarin.mp3
Lyrics:
http://www.ziaspace.com/ZIA/mp3s/YuriGagarin.html

If I’m going to go out in a blaze of glory blasting zombies away during the end of the world I might as well be listening to some great tuneage while I’m at it!

I’ll bet everyone is freaked out. With tomorrow’s date, I’d be a bit upset and I’ve been vocal on poo-pooing the whole thing.

Actually, I driven around a day or two later to see the transformers ~ the line slaps are meek little things compared to the transformers.

Haha. Wind blows a couple of transformers, and everybody has a fit. Because of the meaningless scrawlings of a dead civilization (if they were so bright ... why’d their apocalypse come so soon?)

People are so desperate to believe in something that they’ll believe in anything.

Since the Mayans were proximity in the Yucatan Peninsula, you would think time would be measured from there and not England. Since Illinois is in the same latitudes they should go first. Right?

Caesar allowed for Leap Years and according to that we are really ahead of the Mayans and it’s now July something, 2038!

I’m 90 miles east of Annapolis. Told the family about Annapolis, and right then the lights flickered. Freaking out!

But everything still on.

Nothing about this on the DC 10pm news.

” ... the line slaps are meek little things compared to the transformers.”

You’re NOT getting it. It’s the large ARCS that result FROM the line slaps. The transformers are INHERENTLY limited as to how MUCH current flows through the secondary (WHERE do you think the fault MIGHT form if it INVOLVES the transformer?) AND the branch circuits to the transformers on the distribution spur circuits are FUSED!
