  •  how bout that storm (0+ / 0-)

    i'm wondering if nate is going to factor that in

    •  rain a week ahead of the election? (4+ / 0-)

      what's to factor in? Even if some of it is snow -- a week to clean up, should be not a problem.

      Yes, the candidates may have to change their travel plans a bit if they're planning on going north of DC and east of Cleveland.

      The most significant effect I see is that the media will have to take a break occasionally from covering the horse-race ("Mitt catching up! No, really, he is!") to show some poor reporter in a slicker with rain blowing 100 miles an hour in his face, and surf breaking over his galoshes. That is probably a plus.

      •  there are serious warnings about storm (1+ / 0-)

        and some areas could be without power for more than a week
