Meet Sandy: Single Furious Hurricane Seeking GDP-Boosting Landfall

Tyler Durden's picture

"What's different about Hurricane Sandy and why should we be afraid?" is the anxious question that Bloombergs' Tom Keene poses in the clip below. The answer - it's the size! The wind-field is considerably larger than normal with tropical storm strength winds (as the chart below indicates) extending over a very large area. As we warned yesterday, the storm surge in low-lying areas is the most threatening and the clarity of the problem is highlighted by the graphic below as Sandy approaches the Atlantic coast Monday or Tuesday. With the Atlantic unusually warm (meaning more fuel for the hurricane) and the new moon, the title of the Bloomberg clip says it all: "This is how scared you should be of Hurricane Sandy".'s Storm Track Forecast

I hope they suffer greatly.  I hope it turns the entire North East into one big Katrina.

Please Sandy Claws, destroy the DC/NYC axis of evil. It's all I want for Christmas.

Single Furious Hurricane Seeking GDP-Boosting Landfall

GDP boosting?  No problem, because in our world Government Consumption is considered to be a part of (Gross) Domestic Production.

When your only tool is a printing press, every problem is deflationary. 

"Get to work, Mr. Chairman!"

Hopefully it hits DC squarely, that town could use some cleaning out.

"Learn to swim,

learn to swim,

learn to swim...


Cuz I'm praying for rain,

And I'm praying for tidal waves.

I wanna see the ground give way,

I wanna watch it all go down.

Mom please flush it all away.

I wanna watch it go right in and down...


I can't imagine why you wouldn't

Welcome any change, my friend..."

Never mind all the disgusting chemtrails they've been laying over the S.E. US for the last week. The sky would be clear and blue right now if not for the chemicals (see the pretty rainbows circling the sun with no rain in site!).

This storm - like Issac and Katrina - is being manufactured.


Race Car Driver's picture

Damn - junked by spooks.

Otherwise, if you live in GA - pry yer nose off your monitor and go look outside!

Cathartes Aura's picture

and this manufactured storm will get a little help from the moon cycles,

With the Atlantic unusually warm (meaning more fuel for the hurricane) and the new moon,

it's a FULL moon on monday, which will be tugging on the tides, and the humans, for the 3 days surrounding the 3:49pm NY time of exact opposition. . .

of interest to me is the chart drawn for the Full Moon NY has pisces on the horizon, which rules water, floods, disasters that overwhelm the environment, etc.

of course, everyone has their perspectives.  but the sky does share some gov. secrets if you choose to look, eh Race Car Driver.

If Sandy want to get her freak on, a good spot would be right up the hudson river for some glory hole action.

prob about 10,000 bankers and govt officials cause 99.9% of all the evil issues. Your solution is kill everyone. 


sounds like u work for the government. what good is destroying the axis of evil, when losers like u still abound?

That track shows the eye passing right over my head. Thanks.

Looks to me like it's going to make landfall right at Rehobeth Beach, DE.  My sister has a beach house down there.

Looks about time for all ZH'ers to pack their gold bars & a few 'Narragansett's' & take off for a weekend sword fishing expedition off the Flemish Cap...

If it moves right up the Delaware Bay the slosh effect will be really major like when Isabelle went right up the Chesapeake Bay

"Unlike a standard hurricane that focuses its power near the eye of the storm, the worst of Sandy may come on the edges of the storm — in areas spanning New England to Virginia, he said."

Me too Randall.  =(  Growing up in Florida has helped.  We aren't freaking out like the rest of the sheeple here.

What a bunch of whining pussies. 

Pretty much all whine all the time from the nu yawkas.

If it's as bad as they say, then, welcome to the club.

Stop whining and start boarding..

The storm of shattered glass from high rises will be something to be seen...

What storm ?

A storm here in Florida has to be Cat 3 to be much more than a casual conversation piece,

whatever the MSM hype.Otherwise its just a little extra yardwork.

Damn Yankee pussys.

Must have been living here to long.

tides is Florida are once a day and about 24" in amplitude, tides in the northeast are twice a day and as much as 10'

Which will it be? Weather related unemployment increases, or Broken Window fallacy? Perhaps both simultaneously?

'I hope they suffer greatly.  I hope it turns the entire North East into one big Katrina.'

Have you no fucking shame?

While we're up here doing honest work and raising families, you point your small finger at a large crowd and crown us all as evil banker new yorkers.

You hide behind your keyboard and blame others. A true man.

No.'ll raise billions for the "victims" and turn them into overnight celebrities.


I remember a cable show about the wives of 9-11 victims. they were having lunch and shopping on the several million they each got. it made me sick to watch.

it will be on tv day and night. then there will be the special pensions for those who get sick. then there will be a general fund started for those who are thinking about moving there. then there will be pensions for life for anyone living within a thousand miles.......and, on and on and on and on.


sound familiar?

nine eleven charity donations happened before the big shakedown, the one where everyone got up-ended and shook until their pockets emptied. . .

fewer folks with the empathy gene, and fiat to share, lately - somehow I don't see the gambling classes, nor the bankers, nor anyone who pays them lip service *cough*  giving a damn about anyone suffering this time round. . .


Cathartes Aura's picture

hmm, not seeing the obvious in your statement, but I know you tend more towards the oblique (good to see you again). . .

but here are a few nine eleven synchronicities,

The 1st Kibbutz (Commune Farm) in Palestine is built  on 9/11/1921.
The Palestine Mandate creating Israel is signed 9/11/1922.
The US Dollar Seal is printed on the $US Dollar by FDR on 9/11/1935.
the Munich Olympic Hostage Crises was 9/11/1971.
the Pentagon began construction (77ft tall, 77th Meridian, flt #77) on 9/11/1941.
George Bush Sr gave his “New World Order Speech” to the UN on 9/11/1990 exactly 11 years before 9/11/2001.
American Airlines Captain Chuck Burlingame in MASCAL excercise at Pentagon, simulated a commercial aircraft hitting the Pentagon in 1990 and 11 years later pilots flt #77 into the Pentagon.
Bill Clinton impeachment papers are delivered on 9/11/1994. A Remote controlled Cessna hits White House 9/11/1995.
Twin Towers are destroyed on 9/11/2001.
Gaza Genocide began 9/11/2005.

here's my favourite for the voting public,

Brigham Young ordered the Mountain Meadows Massacre on 9/11/1857.

Mittney's heir to this particular "religion" - one that has Zion as an ultimate belief/goal, and Masonic symbols carved in their marble temples, all over the nation. . . and he's been doing the fund-raising in that little state of controlling interests. . .
