WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. — Cities, towns and villages along the Hudson River were making plans Sunday to manage the effects of Hurricane Sandy, which is expected to make landfall late Monday. The National Weather Service is warning of a dangerous Hudson River storm surge as a result of the storm.

"It's likely the tidal portion of the Hudson River will also be greatly affected, and tides will be greater than normal because water won't be able to drain out of the Hudson at low tide because it'll be piled up into Long Island Sound and any other tributaries that it empties into," meteorologist Craig Allen said.

"It's quite likely that there will be some major flooding — moderate to major flooding — even in towns right along the Hudson River as far north as the tidal portion of the river goes. It's going to be quite a scene."

Allen warmed of the dangers of the hurricane. 

"Everything you are reading about major inundation from record tidal flooding, river flooding and power outages lasting a week or more may come true," he said. "The Hudson and Delaware rivers will likely flood from ocean water backed up. This area has never been through anything like this. Never has a hurricane moved west toward Long Island, New York City and New Jersey."

Man-made storm steered by military HAARP system... don't be fooled!
Something is not right with all this B.S. media hype.


When I was a boy, bad weather was blamed on the testing of atom bombs.

The Science of Global Warming depends to some degree of two observations. Doctor Mann's research showed alarming global warming in the shape of a hockey stick. His worked has been completely debunked thanks mainly to Mr. McIntyre who analyzed the statistical treatment used by Dr, Mann. In essence, the best fit model developed by Dr. Mann did not fit data outside the base years. Similarly for other work that supposedly backed up Dr. Mann.

The second observation came from models. The green house property of CO2 well known for over one hundred years. Pump CO2 into our atmosphere and you will get warming, all other factors remaining the same. But Dr. Hanson's model showed that the CO2 effect is multiplied by a factor of 3. That makes no sense to me as any change in temperature would be multiplied by 3 and lead to a feedback loop similar to that heard in a bad microphone setup in a high school event. And the rapid global warming seen in the 1980's has paused or stopped for the past 15 or so years.

Yes Republicans tend to be more anti-science than Democrats. Mr. Romney pledges to fix the deficit through spending more on ships and taxing less. How anybody takes him seriously is beyond me. Mr. Obama's characterization of the Lilly Ledbetter act shows him to be unaware of the facts and law of the lady's case. And he taught law! But Mr. Romney and the tea party are true disasters.

Clutz buff rap:

The new normal is catastrophic climate change, due to decades of ignoring global warming warnings. The Republicans, as the anti- science party, bear considerable responsibility for our damaged planet


Mayor Swiderski sent a message to residents on Sunday stating, "we've been through this before, describing this unprecedented storm as follows, "the new normal." There is nothing normal about this storm. The level of denial and insulation this guy has repeatedly shown is unmatched. Talk about the wrong guy to sit in a mayoral chair.
