    Default Frankenstorm

    Very unusual hurricane this time around.

    Its going to merge with an already strong storm front and be sucked into the US east coast right smack inbetween Washington and New York, and then grind over Ottawa.

    Its going right for all the densely populated areas.

    NY subway shut down on expectations that it might become a swimming pool.

    Goes to highlight the need to always have some kind of prepardness for this stuff. People who live in the NE US usually face some kind of massive storm once every couple years but almost no one really prepares for it. Its interesting to read articles about how stores are being practically ransaked for supplies right now.

    While this storm decimates the NE US, I will be in Cuba drinking my ass off.

    apparently the NYSE is shut down for today, and tomorrow pending because of this storm. Manhattan is a ghost town, no auto traffic, no nothing, all under evacuation. Even transit is a no go today.

    Prepare how? We put our lawn shit away, take boats out of the water, make sure the generators are ready, get food and booze and deal with it.. We're not gonna plywood up all of our windows and panic over nothing, like you said we get these storms almost yearly.

    They're estimating 7-12ft storm surges. Fucking crazy.

    Good luck Godfuader and other east coast beyonders!

    We just have hail

    Probably the costliest hailstorm in Canada was that which affected 130 sq. kilometers in the Calgary, Alberta area on September 7, 1991. It caused $400 million in Canadian dollars damage.
