It is one thing if you live in an area where these things are common, but a bit different if they are not.

Calling it the worst storm in the past 100 years for the north east. After Katrina and the tsunamis and other disasters, I think people just want to be safe and not go hungry.

I was going to have to make a connection tomorrow on a flight through JFK. Wasn't sure about the storm so I decided to change flights and connect through Cincinnati.

Very good call. Probably every terminal will be closed except for mine which is open 24/7

Nah, NJ's fate would never be sealed by a water Act of God.
Between all the tanning lotion and hair gel, rain doesn't stand a chance mixing in.

It would have to be fire
