    Cool Heads Up NYC Area! Deadly Snowstorm Ahead

    People living in and NYC need to know that another major natural disaster is headed your way. This one is going to be in the form of a snowstorm of the type you have not experienced in your lifetime, with lots of snow and brutally cold temperatures. People will die in this storm, so it's important to take shelter and stay out of harm's way. I should also note that due to your previous experience with power outages, that you cannot "count on" heat or electric being available. If you have a fireplace you need an insert to help keep the house warm. (without an insert, a lot of the heat goes out the chimney) If you don't have that you need a "wood burning stove." And you need seasoned firewood for it, I don't care where you keep it. Getting a wood burning stove installed in a typical home is relatively easy (I'm not speaking to do it your selfers, I don't know how long it takes under that scenario). You can look up firewood sales on Craigslist or in whatever passes for a Pennysaver/local weekly paper in your area.

    I think it's worthwhile to discuss the stoves because although I've mentioned them before, ahem, I'm worried about those suffering from short term memory loss.

    Regarding the storm itself, people will be trapped in office buildings, freezing, etc., so if your work situation is such that you can't afford to stay home even though the forecast is iffy, then at least equip your place of work with blankets, or maybe throw a sleeping bag in your car, or get those handwarmer things, etc. Make sure you'd have what you'd need to spend a week in a freezing office building, so an overnight bag, pillow, etc.

    Your predictions are useless unless you give specifics. Otherwise you will take a future natural random event and say "Look, it fit what I said!"
    "'Clean up your room.', 'Stand up straight.', 'Pick up your feet.', 'Take it like a man.', 'Be nice to your sister.', 'Don't mix beer and wine, ever.'. Oh yeah, 'Don't drive on the railroad track.'"

    "Eh, Phil. That's one I happen to agree with."

    Re: Heads Up NYC Area! Deadly Snowstorm Ahead

    That's strange - neither the National Weather Service or The Weather Channel are predicting any significant snowfall in the NYC area over the next 10 days. Given that weather models beyond that are pure speculation, I'm curious what your source is. You really should include a link to a credible source when posting your predictions, especially if the storm is going to be as dangerous as you say. After all, wouldn't you want people in the path to be able to get as much information as possible to avoid the loss of life you're predicting?

    Or, perhaps you're just full of **** like you always are.

    Re: Heads Up NYC Area! Deadly Snowstorm Ahead

    I'd really like some more information on this. Why would Patti post a warning as fact with no supporting information? What kind of terrible person would withhold information that could save thousands of lives? And at Christmastime, no less.

    How heartless could you be, Patti? Why do you hate people?

    Re: Heads Up NYC Area! Deadly Snowstorm Ahead



    Welp, no snow forecasted for NYC in this storm. Amazing that predictions of a killer snow storm hitting NYC are nowhere to be found anywhere except in this thread. I would think that if a storm of this magnitude were going to hit NYC that it would be making bigger news.

    I hope the people of NYC are able to pull through. Secret blizzards are the worst.

    This is not the storm I am referring to -- the temps alone should tell you that. However the storm will occur this winter.

    Re: Heads Up NYC Area! Deadly Snowstorm Ahead

    When? And what's your source? NWS hasn't predicted a killer snowstorm for NYC, and neither has any other credible weather org. What's your source?

    Religious sources arent credible, btw. "God" has nothing to do with weather patterns.

    Put up or shut up.

    Like unfounded football rumors, catastrophe predictions go to spam unless backed up by credible sources.

    We should rename this the PattiZone.

    Re: Heads Up NYC Area! Deadly Snowstorm Ahead

    While revisiting this thread, I'm of the opinion that the storm currently on the way, while expected to be "historic," is NOT the one referenced. Reason: although NYC will be affected, it is not the center of the storm, Boston is. Second, I believe the temps of this storm are too high to cause the "dangerous" freezing that will occur.

    That doesn't mean anyone should take this storm lightly by any means, but it is not the deadly storm I'm talking about above.

    Re: Heads Up NYC Area! Deadly Snowstorm Ahead

    Once again:

    Snow in Boston and NYC in February? Wow, shocker.

    I predict the Sabres will lose. Maybe not tonight's game, but at some point, they will.

    And TSN or NHLN better call me up and offer me a 7 figure job with that expert analysis.

    Neat how you get to pick, isn't it?

    Still waiting for your source. What are you so scared of, Patti? You, of all people, desperately need a dose of credibility.

    The prediction where I am is 34", and 50+ mph winds. They say there could be snow drifts of up to 10 feet. On the upside, I'm gonna get a ton of overtime out of this. I think every available dispatcher is being ordered in as well as PD and FD.
