Went camping over the weekend. KP buckets left out overnight froze over. Good sleeping weather with just your nose sticking out of the mummy bag with the drawstring all pulled tight. Hard to get out of the sleeping bag to pee at 6 AM.

Snow in MA, flurries on the Cape, and wet stuff in Westfield. Damn.

Some asshole at the National Weather Service is forecasting a mild winter. He/she needs to shut his/her pie hole.

Sustained winds over 200 MPH! 60 MPH winds scare me. 200 MPH is simply crazy. That will pick parked cars up and throw them.

I just went over to the Florida building code for building hurricane proof buildings, and they have all these zone maps and equivalence charts for what 3 second wind gusts are equivalent to in sustain wind loads. All fairly confusing. But the highest winds they design for are 150 MPH. Florida, with its hardened buildings, wouldn't be able to withstand Patricia. Mexico is really going to have a bad time. Entire regions will be flattened. It will be like the path of a tornado, except instead of being 50 yards wide, it will be 50 miles wide.

You better hope the trucks have gone North already.

This is going to be the worst. It is the sort of thing that could topple a weak government...

Pics in Puerto Vallarta from earlier in the day are not reassuring ... I hope the local emergency managers get absolutely everyone well out of the area. A few sandbags stacked here and there look sadly inadequate considering what's coming.

Don't trust the Genie in the lamp, you ask for a blow job and he sends Patricia.
