Snowshoe is getting hammered with snow from this. Could get about 2 feet tonight from what I hear and then another 4+" tomorrow. I'm not sure if they have the man power lined up to open yet but if they do this weekend I'm going to be their!

I lived in Clearwater FL for about 4 or 5 years and yeah the "hurricane parties" do happen

In all seriousness, having been through a few hurricanes, this storm is pretty major. Even here in NE Ohio (summit county) there's a lot of trees down, and bad enough wind gusts they are tellings cars and trucks to stay off the roads. I just did a 30 minute drive from work to home and had to go around downed trees twice.
Least the surfers on Lake Erie are stoked:

Wind, kite surfers hit Lake Erie waves at Edgewater Beach

Where i live we get tons of wind. 90+ gusts isnt really out of the ordinary and 50+ sustained is just another day in SE wyoming. which would explain why the tallest building in our entire state is only 12 stories tall, haha.

have fun with your breezes east coast.

Checking in after the storm. I'm in central Queens and a few feet above sea level. My block still has power. We put out sandbags all around the house hoping to keep back any flood water and luckily they weren't needed (the house has been flooded twice before). Seems I was lucky though. Many people's houses were flooded and don't have power. The subway system is fucked.

I was prepared for something worse than Irene ,but due to Sandy moving farther north before coming inland Southern MD didn't see conditions anywhere near Irene's strength.

if anyone knows of a relief fund that goes directly to those affected please post it up. Im not real fond of the red cross since they just put everything to their general fund. Not bashing them but would prefer to give directly if I could.
