  •  I'll put most of the blame (20+ / 0-)

    on Republicans -- but many Democrats have not seen the absolute necessity for funding NOAA.  

    That being said -- NOAA is utterly amazing regarding their abilities to predict via old satellites, the brave pilots in the hurricane planes, weather balloons and old fashioned barometers.  

    This storm is like none other in our collective memories.  Beyond the "Perfect Storm" because it will make landfall and the tropical wind and rain from the "eye" will expand over 400 miles.

    In Connecticut, we have had relentless rain for 2 months with a couple of days of sun in between.  The ground is saturated -- trees have been falling just because of the soaked soil.  This storm will be very serious for us a week before elections.

    I don't see destruction of property or life as a gift from god.

      We have to get our side to take up the cause and spell it out.

      Good diary.

      And btw, at the risk of speaking the obvious, this is doh! a perfect opportunity to also speak about friggin climate change!
