The Life (So Far) Of Hurricane Sandy

Tyler Durden's picture

She's wet, windy, and bringing a world of hate to the Atlantic Seaboard - but where did she come from? NOAA offers the complete animated real-life of Hurricane Sandy...



Meanwhile in Bermuda - waves are reaching 37 feet!!!


and in case you were wondering just how big Sandy is relative to Irene:

Can I have that 20 seconds of my life back please?

Can't said i'd be hanging out on Long Island about now...but i sure wouldn't mind ordering "hurricanes all around" and gettin' down the Cloud Club...pick up a honey and "ride out the storm"
of course this might the what ends up happening:
what a way to go, man. what a way to go. and of course...if you elected me...Disablevet...Mayor of New York City!...this is exactly what i would tell all you find citizens of Gotham! At least..."that is what i'm doing. I thought you asked me if i had plans? AND INDEED I DO!"

I do, I really really do hate breaking in but why is this storm originating in south Amerinca?

Last I check Hurricanes originated in Africa.



Am I wrong?

Stackers's picture

Yes you are wrong. Storms blow up from low pressure systems in the caribbean all the time. Usually they dont track due north though. They usually go west into Belize and Mexico.


What I'm wondering is why a video of Katy Perry with fire shooting out of her tits is one of the top linked vids for NOAA sat animation ??? WTF ?

This is just what Krugman ordered (the storm that is, not Katy Perry's tits.  If he ordered the latter I might think him human at least).


BTW, here's a high rez pic of the lady:

I'd say it's more Edgar Cayce than Paul Krugman.

I think it would be swell if Frankenstorm 2.0 packed as much punch as Frankenstorm 1.0 that struck the North East and Long Island on September 21, 1938.

I think those people pointing the finger at and blaming the wrong men, the general public, for Human Induced Climate Change, should be pointing the finger at themselves, and we should be pointing our fingers at them,  for the Geo Engineering experiments they have been conducting on us.

The Great Climate Experiment: How far can we push the planet? Ken Caldeira [Scientific American]

Aluminum as Aerosol GeoEngineering Agent

Dr. Jasper Kirkby Explains Prior and Ongoing Atmospheric Geo Engineering by Jet Airplanes

It is Human Induced Climate Change/Man-Made Global Warming for sure, and the men responsible for it work for the United States Federal Government Corporation and the Scientific Community. It’s a deception of the highest order, to blame the wrong men doing it.

Why is that extreme events seem to bring out the whackadoos out of the woodwork?

BTW, your first statement demonstrates that you have a nary a fucking clue about hurricanes... The two are like comparing apples and oranges....

NewThor's picture

I wonder if global warming is causing the major storms and changes on Jupiter and Saturn?

Flakmeister's picture

You *would* wonder about that...

I wonder how dumb one must be to make analogies between Earth and gas giants > 5X its distance from the sun.

LOL Flak! Good one...whackadoos...

Whackadoo.Great line from Mickey Rourke in "The Pope of Greenwich Village".One of my all time fav movies,1984.

Here is a link to one of hundreds of companys that modify the weather:


Not believing companys and governments are modifying the weather is like not believing in electricty or airplanes.


Check out a you tube interview with Ben Livingston, known as the father of weather weapons about just what they can do with hurricanes.

I flustered you beyond belief Flakmeister, and I'm ROTFLMAO because I did, especially because of who you are. 

You double posted because I flustered you so much. You didn't even look at the videos I posted with your comment to mine 11 minutes after I posted it. It would have taken you at least 30 minutes to view them.

Flakmeister's picture

Don't flatter yourself buddy....


tmosley's picture

Flak double posted, therefore you are right.


Flakmeister's picture

Hey shit happens when you try to follow Master's blog, Real Climate and this one simultaneously.... 

Fuckin' mea culpa, I accidently hit the save button twice...

"Why is that extreme events seem to bring out the whackadoos out of the woodwork?"

AMEN, BROTHER. <--(Sounding a bit like a whackadoo)

Aerosol Geoengineering and Hurricane Modification Program Run by Homeland Security

The 2010 American Meteorological Society (AMS) meeting presented details of aerosol geoengineering program run by the Department of Homeland Security.  The program included discussion of how aerosols were effective at decreasing and increasing the intensity of Hurricane Katrina.

The current aerosol geoengineering of Hurricane Sandy is a continuation of the Hurricane Aerosol and Microphysics Program (HAMP).

linked as video above, some accompanying text and other links, for those interested. . .

...and bringing a world of hate to the Atlantic Seaboard.


I didn't know hurricanes were capable of emotion. Or was that a comment about what the Obama campaign is going to do after they lose?


In our recovery package we put new standards of accountability and transparency, which we hope will now apply.

"a video of Katy Perry with fire shooting out of her tits"

Link, please...(while I still have electricity, maybe?)

Harbanger's picture

YES, It's election time again in America!  SO WHAT, WHO CARES??!!  Somehow, That's a BIIIG Fukking DEAL  for the Euro-bitches.  It's too bad what WE do matters so much in your shallow little lives.

fredquimby's picture

I would say it is a very fair point. Most systems in the Caribbean originated off of Africa, they didn't form in the Caribbean, nor usually in South America.

This track is the complete reverse to normal i.e it looks like it comes out of Venezuela and heads towards Africa, and did not form off the African coast before tracking over the Atlantic to the Caribbean as per normal...

Crikey. Maybe the Chavster has something better than HAARP/HAMP to play with !!

I will concur,  W-T-F !!

You are both wrong.

Storms are generated by angry gods passing gas, and drunkenly pissing anywhere they damn well choose.

GMadScientist's picture

This god appears to be angry about being dosed with diuretics.

This hurricane, and every single other one on the atlantic side of things, starts as moisture coming off the coast of Africa.  They don't come up from South America.


I've spent 15 years in the Caribbean and have had to endure >20 hurricanes in this time.  They most absolutely don't come up from South America.

wait wait wait, Katy has a fire shooting out of her tits video in addition to whip cream shooting out of her tits video too?

Flakmeister's picture


You are thinking of Cape Verde type Hurricanes.... They are a subset...

Iriestx's picture

You're right, it's just that the average American is a fucking idiot.  Hurricanes start as moisture and storms off of Africa.  They absolutely do not come up from South America.

Your downvotes are just a product of the American public school system

Don't understand how this can be happening... If Sandy is more than 16oz it's illegal in New York City.

Hope Poseidon has a good attorney.

Good point. Too bad they can't stand against the power & might of the state.

As soon as she hits US land she will be taken into custody where she will have here power drained, contained then terminated. Rest assured.

Long live Empire.

Hey Fringe, if you were not amazed by the interaction of the storm, a cold front, the trough between the front and a system over the Atlantic, then you really should just keep your flap shut on weather related threads....

lunaticfringe's picture

From now on, I will try to get your sage advice before posting anything.

Flakmeister's picture

As a rule of thumb, if you do not know what the fuck you are talking about, you really should be silent, unless you can be really really witty...

And your comment wasn't, not even close....

Flakmeister's picture

They only have to be more effective than the other guy....  A relative not absolute comparison...
