Hurricane Sandy
« on: October 30, 2012, 03:19:50 am »
I was wondering if any of you were hit by Hurricane Sandy or tropical storm depending of where you live? Some parts of New Jersey and New York were flooded really bad and I was hoping our members who live there and other people are ok.

In my case I live at the very end of the storm trajectory (Quebec St Laurent valley), meaning it will dissipate over us at the end of the week. However due to a cold front combined with how huge the storm is, we started feeling its effects Sunday and will do so until tomorrow night. Nothing bad happened here so far, though (wind gusts peaked at 60 mph tonight, the ferry area went very close to being flooded and we barely got any rain), although today I was concerned about how much the cold fronts would inflate the storm effects. Now rain has started but the cold front pushed most of the heavy rain to the west and the winds are already slowly starting to weaken, so unless they pick up again tomorrow afternoon, I doubt there will be any signifiant damage. Irene last year and the March 8-9th snowstorm were far scarier over here than Sandy is (last year power went out for 2 hours and Juju lost it for a day, in addition to his street getting flooded), but I saw pics and videos of the storm in New York and I feel bad for anyone affected.

Any of you got hit bad?

No.
I’ve never been hit by any hurricane but Ike
Although it must stink if its flooded and the water is near freezing

Loved this place, still the best producers of power metal, and sparked my dreams of coding.

Maryland got hit a bit. Power's still out where I live since about 7:30 last night.

Parts of my area still have power and it's only a bit windy so I think the worse has passed. :D

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Yeah, my district's main street is next to a river where I live, so whenever there's a huge storm some basements get flooded. Last year was especially bad with Irene, several people got flooded, there was water until the yellow line of the street at one point and half the people got the phone and TV cut. Fortunately, I was at the other side of the road, so it would need a monster hurricane like there is in the southern states to get me. But it never happen in QC.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

By tomorrow, the storm is projected to pass directly over where I live and stay for a while. It'll just be a "tropical" storm , though, by then. All the schools in our area have been canceled (I imagine all the schools in the county and possibly all of Western New York).

I'm in central(-ish) Maryland. The first part of the storm knocked out power for 3 hours. Then power came back up and stayed on, with of course some flickering here and there. After that mess, it's a lot colder - about 40 or so degrees, with even a chance of snow! :P

Edit: And of course, school's out Monday and Tuesday, hoping for Wednesday as well. :)

Nothing here at all. I'm on the east coast but far enough south that it hasn't affected me.

I live about 20 miles south of Buffalo and on the predicted path it looked like we were gonna be on the outskirts of the storm, so we got a call from the school about 10:00pm last night that school was going to be closed today.  Now I look outside and it looks like a normal fall day, just a little windy.  On another note, idk if its because of the hurricane, but my internet is really really slow.    Personally I wish our area got snow because I am more ready for that, 3 tractors 2 with plows and 1 with a 8ft snow blower!!!!

Yeah, I live about 90 miles south-east of Buffalo and it looks rather normal outside and about the snow, I said the same thing, almost. I was hoping for a bunch of snow because then there would be something to do after the storm (like sledding and whatnot). With rain, all you have is mud and puddles :[

haha, that is true XD I've never done that, but my brother loves it! We have Alfred University and Alfred State campus on either side, here. The A-State kids are more from rural areas around here and the AU kids come from everywhere. Guess which ones will be having fun in the mud?

Actually over here when Sandy hit it became much warmer than normal for this time of the year. During night it's supposed to be around 30F, yet last night it was like 50F.

As of now it's still kinda windy here but less than last night (although more than last afternoon). There were barely any damage apparently because most trees had no leaves, meaning it was much harder for the wind to push them.

Or if your street is flooded you can street-surf
