The good news is that no workers are trapped. The bad news is that between the 14th Street transformer explosion and the flooding and damage elsewhere, there are 670,000 people without power and over 230,000 of them are in Manhattan.

I can just imagine all the poopage floating around all over.

No worries, doesn't U-238 "go away" when you boil your water?

Or is this the reason for the Zombie drill in CA? Radioactive dog/people/pigeon poop all mixed together with microorganisms and various radioactive material and infecting humans?

Sandy has also taken down numerous servers.  Data is being lost at alarming rates.

Expect evidence against JPig and other banksters to be conveniently wiped out by Sandy.

4 minutes of exploding transformers all across Manhatten.

That's 4 minutes of explosive flashes going off that will remind you off shock and awe 'Baghdad Style".

Those explosions seem timed. They were engineered to blow up. Anyone in NYC and its surroundings who has not escaped the place will be very, very sorry in the days to come.

No one is getting out to the suburbs, either.  There are trees down every half mile across Connecticut from what I can tell.  Being prepared is key, though.  Gotta go tend to the generator and a million other things.  Will double check the 25 round magazines just in case....TTYL.  God bless all!

My sister went to King's Point (as did her husband). What my Dad told me tonight is that she said NYC basically dumps raw sewage out in the Atlantic. They have been extending the dump pipes for years. He said it was 200 miles out or something crazy like that. Apparently only "in recent years" did they start treatment facilities and such. Anyway, she said that as you sailed into NY, you could see the ocean change colors.

If you boil shit, you have shit soup; still no good to drink. Thus, the comment about boiling water upthread.

Anecdotal and for what its worth.

Regards,

I thought the Slurpees and Big Gulps would kill us.    This country is filled with real idiots.  We build these huge cities next to major rivers and the ocean and we expect that things like this do not happen. New Orleans is total insanity.

It is easier to make up global warming fantasies to cheat people than to use common sense and not build right next to rivers.  The Dutch can do it but the subhumans in this country have no clue.

It wasn't me but perhaps it was the use of rafter instead of floor joist.

Rafter noun 1. any of a series of timbers or the like, usually having a pronounced slope, for supporting the sheathing and covering of a roof.

now is the time to introduce that geo-engineering legislation we've been waiting for

come on, Subcommittee on Energy and Environment -- let's get to work

you'll especially like the testimony of p rasch

I think it is critical to distinguish between “small scale field studies” where we might introduce some particles into the atmosphere over such a small scale that they would have negligible climate impact, and “full scale deployment” where we expect to actually have a climate impact. Field studies might try to induce a deliberate change to some feature of the earth system at a level with a negligible impact on the climate, but the change would allow us to detect a response in a component important to climate.

ED, wil be fine, once they start selling information to the banks to be packaged into derivatives (don't tell me you didn't know that's the reason for the smart grid)

and maybe you didn't know all those cell tower pulses (and all the rest of them) will be harvested and sold back as power? Utilities are a safe bet:

Ever so bloody right on that, mate.
Do you realize that during the Arab Springs, it was when the social medias were turned off that the people, no longer able to sit at home and commiserate about the nasty state of the world, took to the street to engage with their peers and Viol-i-fuckin-a what happens?

A whole bunch of angry fuckers gettin' angrier by the moment, decidin' to do sumptin' 'bout it!

 

I'm a gettin' a real bad feelin' about this all of a sudden....

Reading my mind.

If things start to get ugly the temperature under Obama's ass will likely cause a fusion (over) reaction. No telling what is about to happen but Romney who will smell the electoral blood in the water is unlikely to make things better.

2. Tooth Brushes & Tooth Paste
3. Bottled water
