The bulk of the storm seems to be pushing into Pennsylvania. Stay safe anyone over there! Trees will be coming down.

Does anyone think they might discuss the idea of building levees in New York?

Winds are picking up here and have consistently been around 40 MPH for a while. Just walked some blocks downtown to grab food and saw some street and store signs that have been partially or wholly blown off. Other than that, nothing severe.

Penn


actually we've (as in people paying attention either to print, on-line or radio maybe PBS) ... I've seen various computer generated images of ideas from various combinations of architects, environmentals to handle Climate Change here in NYC in turns of variouis types of structures in the harbor etc to prevent a semi or full-on disaster, some discussion on radio etc re mostly so far the very section here of Lower Manhattan that just got swamped for a few years already.

Here in Chicagoland, we're having sympathy pains for you guys. Winds have been gusting to 40 all night, sounds like the screen door is about to go flying off. Two story waves are expected on Lake Michigan's coastline. Seems like my parents in MD will be southwest of the bulk of the storm, so that's good.

I wonder if sales of print porn skyrocked this week.

I heard the pier in my hometown was completely engulfed by waves. That usually only happens in the winter. (referring to Indiana)

I'm in Texas right now. I was attending my grandmother's funeral. Ironically enough, she went by the name Sandy.
