Direct hit

Brickmuppet says that there was "a break in the storm about an hour ago"... which means he took a direct hit by the eye.

He also says that they are forecasting 16-21 inches of rain. I can't even imagine anything like that. But I believe it. The storm is sitting right on the coast, sucking water out of the Gulf Stream and delivering it like a conveyer belt onto Virginia. (And everything else.)

When I was living in Massachusetts, one time we had 6 inches of rain in one day, and there was ridiculous flooding all over the place. I was living in Arlington Heights, which is in a valley. The stream that owns that valley is tiny and usually runs about as much water as the creek in my back yard. But after that rain storm, it went out of its banks and started running down Mass Ave. Which was pretty exciting.

Even so, that's a mere moistening compared to what Brickmuppet is going through. The flooding is going to be terrible.

UPDATE: By the way, this video is amazing to watch.

UPDATE: I was wrong. It wasn't the eye.

Brickmuppet seems to keep attracting catastrophe

I think I'm glad I live on the opposite coast!

Everything I'm reading says that Irene is the real thing, and it's gonna be real bad along most of the east coast starting with North Carolina, if the storm does anything like what they're predicting. And if you're smart, you'll believe them.

If you're in that area and you haven't already done so, lay in supplies. Fill containers with drinking water. You want to have as many gallons of water as you can because there's a chance that the water system will be knocked out. When it comes to things like drinking water, better to have too much than not enough!

Chaikamatic?

Chaikamatic? Yikes!

I do have to confess that I think Chaika is pretty awesome.

UPDATE: Since I'm doing a linky post, here's another. There's going to be a reboot of XCOM. Frankly, from the sound of it, I'm probably not interested.

UPDATE: Not a link, but... Amazon JP just shipped the two Rio BDs. I have a DHL tracking number, but it's not in DHL's system yet.

Railgun review

Kabitzin, over at Sea Slugs, finally got around to watching To Aru Kagaku no Railgun. And he loved it. "5 out of 5," he says.

Too bad Pete is so busy with aereoplanes these days.

UPDATE: I wonder why Sofuteni hasn't hit the torrents? The only raw I've seen is 512*288. (What's with that size?)
