Yes, one of the storms will be unemployed, and the one that is still storming will outsource customer service to a place where people will assume names that sound American when you call.
The "Perfect Storm" actually happened!! Several years ago around Halloween. No snow though.....
Joe will get more details up later today but for now, he is saying gale force winds on the mid-Atlantic coast with hurricane force gusts of wind on the New England south coast. He predicts that Alpha will get sucked up by Wilma heading up the coast tomorrow and cause a "rogue" superstorm with heavy "tree-breaking" snows in the Northeast interior all the way down to interior PA.
SUNDAY 11:15 AM A post on the severe situation along the east coast will be here shortly afternoon, providing I dont get killed doing my leg workout the next half hour. However let me say this. I think ALPHA is going to come out and INTENSIFY tonight and tomorrow. When I see systems whole overall cloud pattern IMPROVES over land, even though the low level center has been disrupted, that is a problem. But more on this later.
I'll post some info from his blog later on today but basically he is calling for a rogue superstorm off the East Coast Monday night through Wednesday which will result in hurricane force gusts of wind on the SE New England Coast and a windswept "tree killing" snowstorm in the interior of New England all the way down to central PA. I live on the edge of the projected rain/snow line and it is currently 42 degrees and overcast where I am right now.
But I think the book/movie was based on a real event.
is this the part of the thread where we start talking about dropping atomic bombs on them to stop them?
Why wouldn't the hurricane just keep going in a straight line? It looks like it ricocets off that land mass and turns to the east. I didn't think they did that.
My latest favorite was: why can't we tow an iceburg to cool down the ocean and air?
Well, one thing might be certain.
If these hurricanes are not being stimulated by the big weather machine, they sure are providing statistical datum for any potential adversary to gauge US response time and reaction capacities to such events, if somebody did engage the big weather machine.
/tinfoil hat off .. or at least askew
No, not at all... was just trying to lighten the mood a bit, but guess it didn't work very well.
Okay, then: these two Freepers walk into a bar
I think they are guided by air pressure.
Wow, I hope that sucker stays out at sea.
I live in SE PA.)
. . . and T.P.
Mid week's gonna be a bear.
Seriously, though -- that sort of rain is going to suck. Especially considering that I have to teach a course down at CHOP, and that means an eleven-block hike between Suburban Station and the hospital. And, of course, my beloved Brandywine will flood all over the place...
