I'm a pushover IRL, but Hurricane Alex did nearly 2 billion dollars worth of damage and killed 51 people.

I think your logic is flawed.

Jonwin is working today until the weather gets so bad they need to shut down, but they closed the ship Sunday, so we can sit though the storm together. We expect some flooding in our basement, so Jonwin sweep the floor and clean up the cat litter box.

Today we are filling up bathtubs and putting aside bottle water in case we need to camp a few days with power out. As long as Irene doesn't decide to make a left at the Bay we should be only getting tropical storm strength winds, but better safe then sorry.

Today is opening day at the Maryland Renaissance Faire and I would be there getting soaked, if I wasn't so broke this month. My 2 oldest are again working at the Faire and not happy that the weather will be keeping attendance down, as they get pay by commission. Jonwin has next weekend off, so we see about going then.

So very glad I live in a country which doesn't suffer from any form of natural disaster on a regular basis.

This weekend I'll be watching rugby and will finish reading my book.

Also beer.

Forecast just changed--the most likely path the hurricane takes has it crossing literally over my town. And it is no longer predicted to downgrade to a tropical storm until Maine.

So, yeah. My brother just got here, having evacuated his apartment on one of the barrier islands. We are safe from the storm surges here, though, since we're pretty high up. If we have flooding issues, then this whole area is seriously f*cked.

I spent most of earlier today getting ready for Irene. I'm not going crazy about it, but I wanted to have some fresh water for the dog, and some food that can stand maybe being a little warm for a bit before going bad. The storm before the storm should be here soon, with the hurricano itself hitting sometime tomorrow afternoon or evening.

I wasn't too thrilled when I drove around for an hour and a half looking for D batteries and finally just had to get some from work. Smiley: motz

WTFBBQ? Have you guys ever had a hurricane come up this far north in recorded history?

I REALLY hope you all emerge safe and sound. Smiley: frown

I know that there are a bunch of tower cranes up in NYC that were posing a substantial risk...they weren't sure if they'll be able to take them down in time. Most of them are at the WTC memorial site. They're only built to withstand 65 mph winds.

Erk!

You know the London Eye? Well, they built a smaller version of it in MelBourne as the showcase of the redeveloped Docklands... but they only engineered it to a heat tolerance of something like 41 C, (105.8 F). The year it went up, it buckled and cracked on the day it hit 42C (107.6F). The building company had to take it all back down again at their own cost... as the temperatures in Melb hit a record high of 50C (122F) for a week. God that Summer was bad.

Pre-storm flooding is already to the front doors of some houses in NJ, and the actual eye isn't set to reach us until tomorrow.

There is a nasty rainstorm that is pulling this hurricane with it and helping keep it intense, I heard from my mother.

On the other hand, I also told my mom that I needed batteries for my flashlight so that I could see my computer keyboard if the lights went out and she thought that was reasonable.

They shut down the subways. That's going to be fun come Monday. I'm also on call in case "the East Coast" needs assistance. That's always fun. A limited deployment with no discernible location or duration.

Congo Rats Eske, and good luck all you east coasters. Watch out for flying sharks!

Not much going on around here. The new 256GB Crucial 6GB/sec SSD for the main computer is stuck in the ridgefield post office less than a mile from my house until monday. It was supposed to be here thursday, so not entirely happy about that. When it gets here, the main computer is getting an upgrade. That, a pair of 2TB data drives in Raid 1, A new blueray burner, a card reader to replace the ancient floppy drive, 4 Noctua super quiet 120mm fans to replace the semi quiet vantec stealths on the radiator and front and rear intakes, and some new water cooling quick disconnects for the water cooling kit. Should be a bit of a speed improvement over the 15,000 RPM SaS drive raid 0 array I have in there now. That array will be going into the secondary computer, to replace the 10,000 RPM Raptor array that just had its first failure due to age (nothing was lost, adequate backups are a wonderful thing!)

So, in the mean time, I might work on mill assembly instead.

We have a 24 pack, 5 bottles of wine (plus whatever we had in the cabinet) and a lot of hard alcohol.

I THINK we're good.

Hurricanes go as far north as Newfoundland. Not sure if they carry up to Greenland as well or not, because no one cares.

The storm itself does, but it's extraordinarily rare for them to actually reach that far and still have hurricane force winds. Generally, those are tropical storms. On rare occasions, they'll downgrade as they move north and then hit a warm patch that gives them more fuel, and the winds will increase again.

Plus, any hurricanes that do make it this far generally stay out at sea. It's extremely rare for one to make land this far north. NJ hasn't been hit by one for many, many years.

Well, I just let the dog out while the rain was light and she got hit head on by a skunk. What a super weekend.

Well, the wind is whipping around, and the rain is pretty heavy, but everything seems to be OK so far, at least for me. Lots of people without any power, but this isn't very bad. I don't remember the last hurricane that did any significant damage up where I am (RI). Probably Bob, back in '91? Or I guess Floyd, whenever that was.
