This Isn't Even Funny...

Devastating Storm Heads East
Friday, April 13, 2007

The entire eastern half of the U.S. is bracing for a monster storm, the likes of which one forecaster says occur "once every 20 years."

A storm system heading east from the Rockies is expected to strengthen over the Atlantic and form a huge nor'easter that will barrel up the East Coast, bringing gale-force winds, driving rain and heavy snow to much of the eastern half of the country.

Forecaster Brian Korty says the entire eastern part of the U.S. will feel the effects in the coming days. He calls it the kind of storm that happens "once every 20 years."

Accuweather.com predicts the storm will flood low-lying areas and cause coastal erosion. Inland areas could see a record-breaking snowstorm.
I'm seriously not laughing, folks...

Have I mentioned recently how much I hate living in the Northeast??

I'm so sorry. From the looks of it here -- and we had some of this storm yesterday -- there is sunshine to follow. Hang on tight!

Is it too late to make it west? We were a balmy 75 degrees, just a hint of breeze, no rain in sight. (Of course, we've had such a dry winter, we'll be stealing water from up north and praying we don't get into trouble with fire this summer/fall, but that's pretty much par for the course... not much grew to burn, either).

I've got a spare bedroom.
