    Ha. I am super glad I won't be in Boston for this. They are going to get screwed.
    Boston: City of Champions. New England Patriots: 2001, 2003, 2004, 2014, and 2016 Boston Red Sox: 2004, 2007 and 2013 Boston Celtics: 2008 Boston Bruins: 2011 Boston University Men's Hockey: 2008

    Hopefully it will Weaken to 40-50 mph and leave even more minimal damage.
    Not the Forecast now however.

    But of course Not "the end of days" (I said Not "Katrina").. yet another Disingenuous AdamT reply.

    You need to watch the News.
    I suggest CNN or The Weather Channel who will tell you how rare it indeed is. Unique for the NE.
    As will State-of-Emergency Gov Christie, a Native NJ boy on the last page.

    I really miss Neg Reps.
    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.

    Because news stations would never hype up, and sensationalize things to increase ratings, never. Please, it's a rare thing, but it won't be that bad. Your expectations for it, are far worse then what will more then likely happen.

    and your post mocking an "Extremely-by-ALL-accounts" serious situation:

    "YOU MUST GO OUT AND GET MILK AND BREAD OR YOU WILL SURELY DIE!!!!!!!!!"

    Was really Garbage speak. Now you have to also knock the MSM and most professional Weather people, Hurricane centers, TWC, etc.
    It wasn't just "my expectation" it is the considered opinion of Every single expert on every single network, the Foremost 'caners, Governors up the Coast, Mayors, etc.

    Nevertheless, we all still hope for an increasingly unlikely weakening or glancing blow.

    Come on now, it couldn't be that bad. The media always love to exaggerate.
    Anyways, good look and take care, brothers.

    Kyoto Treaty...




    Inside Koch's Climate Denial Machine




    Fierce forecast: Feds predict up to 10 hurricanes in 2011



    The USA will have an "above normal" hurricane season this year, with anywhere from 12-18 named storms to form in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico, federal forecasters predicted Thursday.

    Of those named storms, six to 10 should become hurricanes, including three to six "major" hurricanes, with wind speeds above 111 mph.

    Thanks, W....

    Are you seriously trying to tell us that this hurricane wouldn't be around if Bush had signed Kyoto?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
