Hurricane/Frankenstorm/Snowicane Thread

Figured I'd start an all purpose weather thread for the impending Armageddon.



Anyone doing anything cool or have any updates on how bad/over-hyped this storm will be?

Is it going to be as bad as it's being made out to be? All we're getting over here is that there's a bit of weather coming your way :p

Just don't be driving around in this slop. I work for AAA the last 2 days have sucked. I hope all this preperation these people are doing means these people arent going out in this thing when it starts because nobodies coming to get you. State of Emergency means only emergency vehicles on the road, Tow trucks ain't emergency vehicles you want a ride you better call 911.

The school district I teach at already closed for Monday and Tuesday. I am thinking it has more to do with the wind possibly pushing buses over than anything else. The building I teach at sits in a flood plain so they told us to get important stuff off the floor and had orange sand bags outside of the doors before we left on Friday and even more when I went to the building last night.

Temple is closed for Monday and Tuesday and they almost never close.

I think the Philadelphia school district will probably end up closing as well.

I still don't think it will be that bad

It's supposed to hit Ontario in a day or so. It's been raining all weekend but they also said we'd get northwest winds Tuesday or Wednesday which means cold so I don't know how that will affect things.

Is the storm supposed to hit and combine with the one on the other side of PA? Seems like Canada may end up getting a hurricane with snow

No one around here is getting snow, so we don't have to worry about that

I work for the NJ court system. Closed tomorrow (confirmed). Probably Tuesday, maybe Wednesday. My wife works for the nuclear plant at Oyster Creek and has to work the overnight shift tonight. I'm just hoping she doesn't get stuck there for a few days. Ugh.

I go to school at Albright. Every single other school around me has had class cancelled until Wednesday since early this afternoon. Anything for us? Nope.

EDIT: And finally they told us we're closed.

Sites like Wunderground and the weather channel should be good

I don't think we're expecting snow yet, they said the temps would be around 7-10 celcius the first few days of the week so that's way too mild for snow.

I have traffic court in Philly on Tuesday morning. I'm sure it'll be canceled.

We are ready here to. Hell, I still have bags of ice from last year. Other than no power, trees are my main issue here but who knows? I know one thing, I am done with no power anymore after this. I ordered a generator and have the electrician set up to install the transfer switch once it gets in. We lose our power around here when a flea farts But I love the country so it is what it is. Good luck to all. **** you Sandy.

Those generators pay for themselves the first time you lose power for more than about two days.
