    Are there many people here from the North East? Good luck everybody.
    We can make some pre-shitticane-predictions for Howard and co.
    Howard and Beth will stay in Manhattan and go rescue some animoes for photo op once the commotion is over.

    i wish we had palm trees here. they don't like the snow.

    always gets me that newspeople and politicians all ignore that Manhattan is anchored to bedrock, and the bedrock is a block of solid granite that extends into the planet's crust the way your molars are anchored into your jaw. My midtown office is in a 60 story building with a stainless steel superstructure that extends into the granite further than MetroNorth's tunnels (we had to evacuate subcellar1 a few years ago so MetroNorth could run an extension into Grand Central - we moved things to subcellar4). Our buildings aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

    You're correct. The bigger problem is the infrastructure... drainage, power grids, subways... it is old and wasn't made to sustain 20 million people as it is.

    i dunno: the water infrastructure is current, with a new tunnel being dug. the drainage is clear and can flow straight into the river in an emergency. the power grid is also current. con ed spends millions on it since they don;t generate power themselves. i'm not especially worried about those things. also my midtown office building has 7 diesel generators and 6 months worth of fuel in the underground tanks. i already told them that, in a real emergency, my birds and i are moving in.

    At least in the outer boroughs -- even in the most modest of storms -- the subway tunnels flood and the electrical systems get soaked. The F is notorious for that.

    yeah the boroughs are like that. in brooklyn the drains always flood. and staten island floods out. queens is usually ok and the bronx is so high up that the water runs down to manhattan and the rivers first. maybe with the new sports deal in brooklyn money will flow into the area to improve services there.

    i love the weathermen who stand in the storm to deliberately get blown all over the road and almost get hit by shit so we the watching public tune in.

    Because they still (stupidly) think that we need to see someone blowing around in a storm to know that "hurricanes are windy." :facepalm:
