Fat lotta good that will do. The federal government is not equipped to handle these kinds of things.

Where's Super-Obama to turn back the tide, to bring warmth, to bring sunshine & joy to all?

I mean all the man has to do is show up?

“Nor’easter” oh it hurts my ears. Darned journalists. Northeaster!

And since when did they start naming snowstorms like hurricanes?

I noticed on the weather report this one has a female name starting with an “A”. I forgot the name now.

Now that he has been re-elected you won’t see Obama in these areas anymore
He is probably heading for Hawaii or the golf course

And if a terrorist strike on a major power grid happens in the winter you will see this many times over

But Obama will keep them safe just like he did the Ambassador

GOP Convention, Tampa, FL 2012 and an approaching tropical storm:
I think liberals (who just found God) said it was His will to wipe out the convention?

They’ll blame President Bush, just like always.

No way, no how will they ever blame their cool guy Mr O, the first communist president! (No, he’s not the first gay president, cuz I watched “Ten things you didn’t know” the other nite, and that particular show was about Lincoln. He had 4 men that he slept with, and every one knew it and speculated on his “relationship” with them. Hah! You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out. And, of course we all know that Clinton was the first black president—they referred to his attitude, I refer to his heart and his soul.)

America has been on the road to perdition for a long time, and there is no way to stop that path. Mother Nature is helping that out too with hurricanes, floods, and that ever expected “BIG ONE” earthquake in California and along the New Madrid, and of course the expected volcanic eruption under Yellowstone.

FEMA can’t handle cleaning up a kiddie party at McDonalds. Those folks up in the northeast need to realize they are on their own.

It was Athena!!! I was saying the same thing to some of my co-workers, and they had no idea why either!!

Is this going to be 'the new norm' now too?...

Yeah, when did they start naming snowstorms?

I live in Maine, they’ll be to the letter “Z” in no time.

“Nor’easter” is simply a colloquialism of New England.

Except in Maine. That’s how we know if you’re from Outta State.

They are called N’oreasters because initially the wind starts picking up from the Northeast and that is how in the old days they knew a fall/winter coastal storm was coming in.

I think I’ll stick with “storm”. If I tried to copy the locals I’d probably end with a lunch I didn’t want or order.

Here I thought driving at 2 mph. every where was the best clue of outta stateness.

Staten Island has their own name for them, I would guess.

I’m down in Philly and we call them N’oreasters. All along the coast north of the NC/VA border, when these storms start intensifying just off the Carolina coastine, the winds start to pick up from the Northeast and then gradually start shifting around counterclockwise as the storm moves up the coast.

This whole area is a hotbed of Jew-haters and Israel-haters.

The Almighty is keeping his promises. Prepare for more smiting--or repent.

The “bank bailouts” were nothing but New York City bailouts.

As the center of the liberal socialist universe, they severely need a lot of reality therapy.

As Heinlein said, “They don’t get half the kicking around they deserve.”

Amazing how people get attuned to shifts in the wind, it’s temp and moisture level and I suspect even a bit of electricity in the air somehow.

Obviously a liberal tactic. No doubt the Obama administration is behind this. It's got to do with the global warming agenda.

Next the libs will come out with a TV ad with a concerned grandmother saying to her grandchild: "I remember when snowstorms never needed to be named, but that was before Bush and the republicans came into power"

I so badly for those poor people who did not have the money to reestablish themselves elsewhere and ended up in flooded houses or shelters. The cost of housing is so high in NYC. They are going to suffer more with this storm.
