Heard on the weather channel that ohio, and cincinnati can potentially recieve a wintery mix of snow, freezing rain, and ice, and will have gusts of 40-50mph winds from sandy

I never asked for this. :laugh:

Yeah I can't wait. The last time a hurricane made it here I was without power for a week.

The concept of waiting a week with no power, in the nippy frost with snow falling is just not a pleasant image that I want yet:lol::lol::lol:

Would that have been Hugo?

the one in 2008 or was it 09?

Dang, I can already hear the wind chimes screaming as the wind blowing them harsly.

I'm guessing Ike... I was living in Cincy at the time and my power was out for over a week. I thought being without power in the summer was bad, losing it with the cold and snow would be even worse.

Snow in late October. What are the odds?

Better to experience a hurricane in Cincy than on the coast. Trust me.

That was Ike that hit Cincy several years ago. We were lucky....we only lost power for a little over three days but others around me lost it for a week too. That was crazy but I can't even imagine what those on the coast up in New England will be and are currently going through with Sandy. I have friends in a lot of the affected areas and they're all hunkering down and hoping for the best. I can deal with a little snow and/or freezing rain...I do NOT want to deal with all the stuff that's heading their way. :eek:

Thoughts and prayers to everyone in the affected areas. :(

My sister got married in late october, around 1993 or '94. There was a dusting of snow on the ground in the morning.

Yep, things are starting to get ugly here in central MD. Can't imagine what it's like on the coast and all over Jersey. Hoping the power holds out, but expecting it to go at any time now. Could be the 3rd time in the last 14 months we lose power for 5+ days. :thumbdown:

Jersey...I'm in the north. Not awful here, but the coast is getting treated like Josh Fogg.

I'm in central jersey. Really not too bad here, either. My basketball hoop came down and the lights have flickered a couple of times, but it doesn't seem as crazy as the media is making it out to be.

I hope the coast is doing okay.

I'd take the Cincy forecast in a hearbeat. We've had at least 2-3 inches of rain today and wind gusts over 50 mph and its not going to end for another 24 hours.

Manhattan is kind of crazy, especially near the Battery and most of downtown. Quite a few without power and an insane amount of water. The subway appears to be flooded. Certainly could be worse though, even though there have been some deaths, which is incredibly sad.

It looks to be 100X worse near the Jersey Shore though.

Ike? Out of everyone I know in Cincinnati, I was the only one that didn't lose power, once. I kept offering my co-workers a place to have a hot shower and watch some TV, but they never took me up on it.

My friends on the other hand basically lived off my house for a week... stored their food in my fridge, used my PC, and used all my hot water.

I was getting some pretty nasty gusts around midnight-2:00. A huge oak tree across the street was bending and swaying all over the place. That thing is so big it would level my house.

I was going through marble-sized hale about 4:00 AM. The winds were really strong, too. The weather was so crazy that a drunk buddy of mine said, "Nature seems really unnatural lately."

Storm got crazy last night. Trees, power lines, fences all down. Really felt like the roof was going to be opened like a can a few times. Looks like my power is going to be out for a while... maybe a week. No bueno. Heading south to Atlanta for the rest of the week.

Hope everyone else is safe.

had 800+ claims come into the office today.

Got to tell a bunch of new yorkers that they have 3-5% hurricane deductibles.

I wouldn't think many would have coverage to begin with. Or it mandatory for a home loan in NYC?

not sure if it's "mandatory" or not.

if you own a home, and don't have homeowner's insurance, you probably shouldn't own that home.

Pretty sure he's talking about hurricane insurance, not homeowner's.

New York and Connecticut's departments of insurance have announced that the hurricane deductibles are not to be enforced for this claim.

I can see that for Connecticut, as the maximum sustained winds weren't hurricane force.

New York is different.

This will help people out in the short term to be sure, but this will be bad news for the long run. I bet the carriers will pull out of New York, much like they have in Florida.
New York wind pool will be next.
