That is all.

We're in the middle of a hurricane. My town and the next town over (I live right on the border) is a DISASTER ZONE. Every 30 seconds another transformer blows. Power lines getting ripped apart all over the place. Trees and power poles are getting torn right up and thrown into streets. Sunrise Highway = Closed. Long Island Rail Road = Shut down. All of the southern parts of my town(s) are completely flooded (I live right on the water, south shore) and have no power.

Seriously. It's like watching the Day After Tomorrow from my bedroom window.

This is why I will never own an electric car. The the grid goes down and you car might as well be broken down as well. (Although this may not matter in NYC much)

Shoot, looks like you guys got the brunt of the storm. We got some flickering lights and fallen branches where I live, but that's about as bad as it got.

Any good lightning?

I'm a weatherbug myself. I wanted to go to Jones Beach today but unfortunately no one wanted to go with me
. I'm also the guy that everyone calls crazy because I sit on top of my house during thunderstorms to watch all the lightning and jazz. I absolutely adore storms, it's like an art from God...

But yeah no, no lightning tonight, all rain and wind. The "lightning" I see is transformers blowing up and power cables being ripped from houses.

Aww, damn. No lightning.

I was always called an idiot when I went to high school because I would walk in the rain instead of trying to crowd onto a bus. Funny thing is I always beat the bus riders over to the vocational building just next door. It was funny

Yessir


I don't think the rain's quite as bad out in Riverhead, but earlier today my street was completely flooded, and the wind is relentless.

I like storms.

I too love bad weather. The last time it snowed, I drove with my Jeep's windows down so it would snow inside the cabin while I was driving.
