Major East Coast storm possible.

You have a week to prepare. Make sure you've got your stuff together and have some extra food/water/fuel/repair supplies on hand. This could be a repeat of the '91 blow. They are talking feet of snow on the backside of the mountains and serious flooding if it tracks the way the euro model ( the historically most accurate) says it will.

according to noaa it's only supposed to be at tropical storm strength at most by the time it hits the florida latitudes with zero landfall. with the current ENSO advisory and the high pressure fluctuations still present in the south east from last week's severe storm system, i'm guessing that it will stay pushed out to sea. i could easily be wrong on this since i've just started to learn to read and interpret all the satellite and other instrument data though i'd expect some good storms, but nothing crazy damaging or detrimental to people's day to day activities.

I sure hope so, but those same people missed it in 91 and with katrina. I've read places where the track could go out or in and at tropical storm level to cat3. It's not practical to predict right now, but I'd prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Gas, food and water will last long enough to use it.

I'm workin' in Cocoa Beach, FL this week. Just watching the morning news and it looks like it might skim the east coast by 300 miles or so and head back out in the Atlantic.

I remember in '91 we had ice storms that sucked. School was out for a solid 2 weeks and some places in Nashville didnt have power for over a month.

We had an ice storm in Maine about a decade ago that took power out to most of Maine for over a month

In the fall and winter 50 mph is a weekly occurance on the coast here so the ice on top of it made a real mess

I just got done tying my fathers Plane down, and I looked at NOAA with him and its going out to sea, and then make a hard left turn and SCREW New jersey and New England.. So It will be a pretty crappy storm. I hope everyone stays safe

Prepare for the worst, hope for the best. If the alberta clipper drops like they say, it could be worse than 91.

Here in Florida we are starting to get some winds off of it. Nothing bad, but they are calling for winds up to 35mph on Friday. Hopefully, it dies down before it makes landfall.





Rest in Peace Glenn "Elvis" Breaux - June, 17th 2007 and Chad Clifton - June, 25th 2008. You will always be with me when I ride. I will never forget you.
