If Nemo and Sandy engaged in illicit sexual relations with each other, what sort of weather could we expect as their offspring?

A year ago, Japan got kicked in the teeth, first by an earthquake, then a tsunami, then by explosions as their uranium based electric industry nuked their economy, their people, and their lands.

 Last year, the Northeast was socked by one wikked olde, meanie of the storm, one that brought  great destruction, flooding, and put a spotlight on just how heartless, brain-dead, ridiculous certain caffeine based political parties were, and how alien, even anti-American their responses were to death and destruction.

Now, the same part of the country faces Nemo, a storm expected to bring snows up to 3 feet high in Boston, and 12-16 inches in NYNY.

Here in Chicago, at least, we know what to do in a big storm. We learned (the hard way) to put on a CSNY album and love the one you're with. NYNY? Not so much.

I don't see mountains of salt, huge blades on your salt and garbage trucks, nor snow route signs on your streets. I don't see people smiling as they pull out dusty, unused snow equipment, including skis, sleds, and snowshoes. I don't see any preparation, not when you face a storm of this scale. I wouldn't be surprised if you saw a fleet of help coming from Chicago to help you out. You may need it.

BE SAFE. BE WARM, Love the one you're with.

All I can say is, love the one you're with, love the one you're with.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
