Hmm.... The NY Fed Gold Vault is the lowest level  'E' as I recall - you could feel the subwy lines go by.  And they're expecting major flooding of subway lines.....

A number of the COMEX bullion vaults are also downtown  - in basement level facilities.  


Could we have a massive - if supposedly 'temporary' - loss of access to gold in storage?  Or - horrors - could some be swept out to sea or lost while being evacuated by boat?


snark - yeah... just like Chavez is actually going to get his gold back from London....those tungsten bricks are going to end up on the ocean bottom.....  with a payoff in paper insurance money.

Something's wrong with the Lake Anna plant in VA:


At the end of the clip, some locals talk about the lower lake level, down by 22".

Per the plant owners:

"Dominion says each of the plant’s two nuclear reactors pumps one million gallons of water a minute into the North Anna Lake.  Dominion says that flow was disrupted during the power outage, but posed no risk to the public."

Excuse me. If the lake is not getting the "million gallons of water a minute", the reactor is not being cooled. Which may be a risk to the public.

Today is a day to sell equities, buy gold and bug out of the city for the weekend upstate.   It will be a good practice run.

You may be right, sir.

The hurricane is going to hit shore right about where the Lake Anna nuclear power station sits, and slowly work its way north, slamming into every nuclear plant on the Eastern Seaboard.

Every one of which was just struck by a large earthquake measured right at the max of what these plants were designed to withstand.

I don't see any problem at all. Oh, no, nothing to see here . . . Yes, I'd say G-d is pissed.

Yeah, but those same 'Masters of the Universe' all own real big expensive homes in the Hamptons.....

I like it, banksters ain't people. He he he he he he! Snort!

I was talking to my banker today, I accidentally said, "Well I understand your position on this, given everyone thinks ya'll are criminals and all, you need to be conservative (they gave me a lowball appraisal on something which may screw me)." He said, "Gosh, now why would I be offended by that?" We both laughed, we both know what is what.

I think the issue is more related to the higher water levels. 


The wind from katrina didn't do much to N.O. but the water level increasing did.
