The morning after

NJ - Hoboken - Nor'Easter 2007-1

That lake? There's the BoA ATM I sometimes hit on the way to work, as it's right down the road from where I live.
"We have at least 50 state roads right now that are impassable," Codey said this morning. "This is like a blizzard without the snow."
In a statement released this morning, state officials said the state government, Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike and mass transit would remain open today. But commuters should think twice before leaving the house.
"Residents should not travel unless necessary. If you must travel allow yourself plenty of time to get to your destination," the statement said.
I'd just suck it up and wade my way to the train station, as some intersections between where I live and my car are closed off (and that's assuming I can get my car OUT of town), but already they've got train lines are suspended from the flood. Wheefun. And lots of schools are closed. I do enjoy that our acting governor instructed people to watch The Sopranos last night as a way to deal with the storm.

Check out some amazing photos of the fire and flooding over here, or some intense videos from right next to the blaze here.
A Jersey City firefighter asked a fire dispatcher which was the best route into Hoboken, and the dispatcher replied: "Take your pick - every one of them is flooded."

Current Location: a tower above the lake
Listening to: sirens and car alarms

The entire Hoboken social cycle is broken! Skin left a natural color! Nails left unadorned! Next thing you know there will be men walking the streets without their assigned khaki pants and collared shirts! It'll be chaos!

Feel free to send some precipitation our way. We could use some more snow on the mountains, to avoid a nasty fire season.

Of course, you're managing to have both, fire AND rain.
