    +1, this sucks for all of you in her path.

    Sorry to hear this!
    Hope the storm isn't too bad and doesn't cause you too many more problems.

    Naming this storm is ridiculous... they are definitely in a quest for ratings at this point.

    This thing looks like an absolute nothing... still hope all those in affected areas stay safe.

    So chop chop, make with the funny

    OAKWOOD BEACH, N.Y. — They were found hugging, a former Marine and his blue-eyed son, buried under the wreckage of the home they had hoped to save.

    John "Flip" Filipowicz and John Jr., 20, had defied orders to evacuate as Hurricane Sandy approached Monday, determined to pump water out of their basement. But the massive tidal surge and raging floodwaters crushed the foundation, and a wall of concrete collapsed on them.

    Police discovered the two the next day, their arms wrapped around each other. They lay amid the wreckage of Oakwood Beach, a working-class neighborhood of firefighters and cops, postal workers and corrections officers, on the southern lip of Staten Island, the always-forgotten New York City borough that suffered the worst in Sandy's terrible maw.

    "They were hugging, and it breaks my heart to think that Flip was telling John, 'I can't save you,' " said their neighbor Sue Somma.

    Filipowicz, 51, a former corrections officer, had sent his wife, daughter and another son — John Jr.'s twin — to relatives. Somma, the neighbor, described the former Marine as "a survivor" who probably planned to drink a few beers with John Jr. while the hurricane raged outside.

    The next day, Somma said, she and her husband saw a 20-foot-wide hole where the concrete foundation had caved into the basement. John's brother, Neil is a retired FDNY and former MOS 1st Pct

    Already snowing in central CT (my hometown and where my mother still lives).

    I don't know if it's part of Athena or just another weather system.

    Way too early for snowfall.

    Been snowing pretty heavy in Central Nassau. Just such a mental kick in the arse for all these poor folks.

    Light snow here, but we're further west, hopefully not getting much.
    I'm not even going to shovel it.

    I am on a shovel strike.

    Plus my dead, poisoned arm makes it prohibitive.

    I just bribed a Verizon guy $200 to fix my Fios today instead of waiting until Saturday.

    Even in a hurricane I rock harder than Air Supply.

    Came back on last night around 10PM, but my Fios wouldn't boot back up so I missed all the election coverage. Streamed NBC news on my iPad for that.

    When I called Verizon they said I wouldn't be able to get fixed until Saturday even though it was a relatively simple problem. This morning getting coffee at Dunkin' Donuts I noticed a guy in a Verizon truck. Jokingly, I asked him if he accepted bribes and I give him $200 bucks if he came to my house right away and hit a few buttons to get me up and running.

    He had no problem with that. My power just went out again about five minutes ago, I assume they're working on something.
