    Thanks. Good to get a gauge on prices/models.
    And so you see, I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

    Why are they calling this storm NEMO?

    Why are they calling this storm NEMO?

    The name Nemo isn't meant to refer to "Finding Nemo," Bryan Norcross, a TWC meteorologist who helped conceive the storm-naming last year, told the New York Times. Nemo is Latin for "no one" or "no man." It also refers to Captain Nemo, the Jules Verne character from "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea."

    "Captain Nemo was a pretty tough, fierce guy," Norcross said.

    And/Or a year in prison.

    Was pretty funny watching the MEMA press conference this afternoon when the Seceratary of Douchebaggery or whatever department got to the podium to explain the driving ban and then a reporter asks him about the penalty and he mentions a year in prison and Governor TaxPrick has to do spin control afterwards.

    Wind is getting pretty stong here on the coast...received the call from town emergency mgmt advising self evacuation immediate coast and areas that flood (house is less than 1/2 mile from Humarock beach, on the Marshfield side of the river, no coastal flood threat, but I do have the possibility of flooding under the house in the crawl space from ground/marsh water rising...hopefully power stays on in case the pump needs to run).

    Not a bad 5 minute walk.

    I just cleared off my car for the second time and 5 minutes later it was completely covered again.

    Other than the occasional 60-feet-of-seawall-washed-away and 8 feet of seawater in Mr. Unlost's family home basement, the giant sewage treatment plant, deafening airport noise and neverending work on the bridge that is one of the two access points into this merry little peninsula, what's not to love?

    Taxprick, that's great. :lol: Hes such a douche. Hang in there Ponc. Hoping the flooding stays at a minimum and the most you'll have to clean up is snow. I already have about 5 inches on my porch right now. And it's just getting started.

    Hmmm. Just got hit by a blast from the northeast and the house rattled.

    That's unusual.
