That's all just a product of our frame of reference. If we had the memory of a gnat, we wouldn't worry about a malignant universe.

My eldest son read out the extreme weather warning hitting you guys:
  • Tornados                             -> find shelter in the basement
  • Torrential rain and flooding -> keep out of basements
Yikes, it was worse than I thought{#Meditate}

I'm watching videos of the tornado. that thing was pretty wide. glad you're ok. any damage where you were?


I was at the hospital there (visiting), and you'd never know there were houses knocked down a few miles away.  Yesterday (the day after), the only way you'd know if rained or the wind blew was some standing water on the grass and some washed-out mulch on sidewalks. 

I know there was damage around...but I didn't see much of anything.

This was not a hurricane.  It was a tropical storm fully laden with moisture.

NJ gets hit by hurricanes with regular frequency.  They come up the Atlantic coast.  Once they hit NYC they turn into what is usually called a Nor'easter and inundate New England with huge coastal surf and torrential rain with subsequent flooding.  In the winter, they can come in the form of devastating blizzards and snow measured in feet with the same type of coastal ocean surf damage.  A Nor'easter can happen any time of year and are not always from hurricanes.  They can also be born from systems that roll through the Great Lakes.  This is what caused the horrible winters the Pilgrims and other colonists in New England suffered from and caused great harm back in the 1600's on as has been well known and well documented.

Tornados?  Not to jinx it, but all we need now are earthquakes to make this place totally insane.

The really odd thing about the weather now is the random nature of those impacted (3' of rain in one town...almost nothing 5 miles away) and the sheer amount of moisture.  I hadn't seen really heavy rains until I visited Southeast Asia a lot...and now we have rains like that.  The Northeast flooding is from moisture picked up in the Gulf....it's 1,200 miles away....and still had that much water.  

the earthquake we had back in 2011 is enough for me.

I saw some coverage of that late last night - coupla homes flattened! My family in Monmouth County (Down the Shore) had driving rain and high winds only. Glad you are okay! Our mutual friend in Fluffya is okay too.
