    Hurricane Irene

    It's going to be the blizzard of 78 all over again....but without the hundreds of cars being abandoned on 128.

    After watching the reaction to yesterdays devastating earth quake in Boston, I'd expect a state of emergency to already exist and the local hardware stores to already be out of duct tape and plywood.

    Have you begun to panic???

    MA isn't that far behind NH in average household income and quality of life.  Be patient, things may improve for you.

    Sweet Mother of God.

    I am working at home, and builds take a long time so here I am.  CNN is on the TV for the last 6 hours.  Absolutely nothing has happened in the world today, except for a hurricane in August.  President Obama could be walking down Pennsylvania Ave with Gadaffi's head on a stick, cancer has been cured and the Astros actually won a baseball game, and we'd never know.  Irene is coming.

    And speaking of Obama, he cut his vacay short and came back to DC to deal with the pending emergency.

    Oh please.  He's on a beach on the southern side of an ISLAND that is right in the middle of Irene's path.  He got the hell out of Dodge.  That is SMART.

    Re: Hurricane Irene

    Near western mass reports(Thats Albany or Ohio, for the bostonians). We will see the center of the storm. I'm sure that boston will give its heart out to Ohio, maybe Albany, for the damage that the storm does in WESTERN MASS. But realistically I hope your basement gets water. I will deal with the water at 865 ft above sea level. My house at least will survive sea level rise. I know where my septic drains, but you don't. LOL

    You'll be ok.  It could be worse.  You could be in NYC.  Looks like this will be a non-event in the settled part of MA, but NYC might just be wiped off the map.

    Well, the Bronx has a river on one side and the Sound on the other.  Thats a lotta watah.  I wouldn't mind seeing Yankee Stadium filled with watah  :-)

    Do they still have that baseball bat tower?  I'd live to see that topple like a statue of Saddam.  Regardless, its going to be must-see TV, for the first day at least.  By this time next week I'm sure it will all be Obama's fault.

    Do you think Bush and Cheney gave Obama the hurricane machine?

    I'm still alive and my house didn't get any water in the basement. Not to say that it couldn't have been bad , but they really oversold this one. I have lost power in the past for far lesser ordeals , but not this time. THANK YOU LORD !!!!!!

    In Response to Re: Hurricane Irene : Yeah. It seems to go in cycles, this business with over and under predicting. First the underestimate for a while. But then a storm blows up and all hell breaks loose. People then get all outraged because we haven't built supercomputers capable of tracking the precise location and spin state of every quark in the solar system, and are therefore unable to model weather predictions perfectly. So for the next year or half year, every next storm is hyped up to be the storm of the century. Until people get all outraged at the weather people for reacting in a perfectly rational way to the past misplaced outrage.... It all ends up being very silly. I'm just going to avoid earthquake zones, never move back to a Tornado zone, and keep reasonable care of my property. Oh, and avoid doing anything drastically stupid. Not much else one can do.

    True...there's not a whole lot you can do ..tother than be smart and prepared. By the way..the meteorolists' ability to predict these storms is going to start getting harder after NOAA's funding cuts.
