    If you live in the path of this storm, Hurricane Sandy, keep yourself and family safe. No matter how many times I have crossed swords with you, keep yourself and your family safe. This storm looks like a once in a lifetime event. At least let us hope that is the case.

    I was just thinking that Old Rocks would be jumping on this... That's how predictable you are..

    Little premature to be panicking don'tcha think? I grew up in Florida and went thru many storms. That weak tropical storm is gonna start falling apart north of the Carolinas. Just like the last time the remnants of a hurricane threatened the NorthEast..

    But carry on.. Do your duty and I add my hopes that everyone stays safe and prepared..

    How many posts before OldieRocks blames this on CO2??? Place your bets...

    I'm SURE you're hoping for some action... Some massive destruction and insurance claims to tally up against the "deniers".. Or was that just ackward phrasing??

    Wish I was back East. I love the thrill of being in storms.

    yet

    I know how dangerous they can be.

    stay safe everyone, use common sense. have a call list or friend who you will contact after storm passes so everyone knows you are all okay

    :cool:

    You be safe, too. (Are there any dangers in Oregon?)

    I disagree with almost everything you say politically, but you got this one right. A once in a lifetime danger like this transcends political yakking.

    OK -- I admit -- the climate "thingy" about higher temperatures affects hurricanes and their severity.

    Here's why the NE doesn't get hurricanes..

    [​IMG]

    The jet stream MIGHT steer that storm as a tropical depression into the NE, but LEAVING the GULF STREAM will sap the energy out of that storm UNLESS it's booking at a hefty rate from the Carolinas to Boston..
