    I keep hearing a lot about this hurricane, but haven't paid much attention to it. Is it really that bad, or are people overreacting? O.o

    The reason I ask is because so many have come and gone before without anybody saying so much as a word about them.

    Please bomb Nanny Bloomberg's FB page, and the NYC City page.

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Michael-Bloomberg/112515495427750

    We get it - it's gonna be bad. This motherfucking pansy ass fairy boy wont stop blathering about "dont forget your house keys, dont forget your galoshes, dont eat any salt, no smoking, no open BBQs... and pack plenty of fudge - I plan to pack more fudge than usual for this storm..."

    And let's ask him how many people will die this weekend due to union/gov worker malfeasance, like what happened during the blizzard of last year - the worker slowdown that caused at least three deaths.

    Please tell Bloomie to

    SHUT THE FUCK UP

    heybreaux saidYeah I don't want to cause alarm, but...

    since I grew up in New Orleans, I thought I knew all I needed to about hurricanes...it is different in NYC.


    Excerpt: The city’s Office of Emergency Management website takes this all pretty seriously. "Due to regional geography, hurricanes in New York City — though infrequent — can do far more damage than hurricanes of similar strength in the southern United States," the site states. "Hurricanes can flatten buildings, topple trees and turn loose objects into deadly projectiles … A major hurricane could push more than 30 feet of storm surge into some parts of New York City." Just a five-foot storm surge would flood low-lying neighborhoods, subways, the PATH train, and parts of the FDR, says Orton. This happened with a Nor'easter in 1992 and with Hurricane Donna in 1960. "We think big hurricanes and we think Donna or Gloria, but these storms were mild stuff compared to 1821," says Orton.

    I live in a steel beamed building that has brick on the outside, so I am not at all worried about wind, and I am on the second floor, so I am not worried about even flooding, but even so, if it hits NY they predict Cat 1 or cat 2 worst.

    Apparently this storm in 1821 that hit New York and flooding occured much of lower Manhattan, this would be bad today b/c of the subway is underground and could flood and transport could be a terrible mess for weeks? That would be terrible indeed.

    Anyway, I reviewed the evacuation map and I am in a No Zone or white zone that they are not calling for evacuation, so I am going to be here icon_smile.gif

    I got this e-mail from my gym:

    Dear xxxxxx,

    Weather permitting, we are planning to be open all weekend. If anything changes, we will notify you as soon as possible through a member alert.

    Stay safe and dry this weekend, and we'll see you in the club!

    In good health,

    All well and good, but if some dumbass welfare case is standing on 6th avenue in ankle-deep water yelling for someone to come rescue them, then I say fuck em. Let 'em drown. They were warned to GET THE FUCK OUT.

    I think people are overreacting - it will only be a category 1 hurricane by the time it gets to NYC.
