Halloween after a superstorm

Still trying to get my head the superstorm and how much it has changed lives along the East Coast. There is suddenly a ton of nostalgia for the Jersey shore, as Governor Chris Christie says that the coastline is forever changed. Looking at images of fire and flooding, you cannot doubt that. Even more, Queens is burning with 100 homes turned into ashes.. reports of fires breaking out throughout the affected region due to gas lines or electric lines.. or who knows what.. The aftermath still isn't fully sinking in. 6.5 million are still without power this morning--and this morning in the Northeast is very cold.. And in West Virginia, it's even colder with feet of snow falling instead of inches, weighing down trees and branches and most certainly causing further power disruptions.. This was a storm for the record books. Did you notice, though, how many storm for the record books are happening lately? Maybe then this storm is simply a harbinger of disaster to come..

Halloween eve: True horror takes center stage

True Halloween horror as caskets float out of the ground in Maryland courtesy of Hurricane Sandy..

There is more horror than this blanketing airwaves and net streams.. The aftermath of Sandy is unbelievable .. The destruction caused is unfathomable..

Stay tuned, I will have many more thoughts on this. I have been without power due to the storm as well, and now that I am seeing the images on TV my mind is completely shocked.. I am at a loss for words, but will find the words to presents my thoughts in a coherent manner (or at least try)

The superstorm Sandy was nothing less than historic

Hurricane Sandy was one of the worst storms I have ever lived through, the power was out for an long period of time for me (and will be out a lot longer for others), ... this is a reminder of how much better I and others need to do in preparation for impending crises..

I had a lot in preparation, along with supplies. But every disaster is a stark reminder of what you forgot to do and what you need to do better next time.

With the way our weather is there will be a next time.. The planet earth is changing, and we as human beings glitter this planet are subject to its massive mood swings..

The eerie calm before the storm for me

As though this nightmare scenario of storm surges, high winds, and flooding rains couldn't get worse, it did overnight. Hurricane Sandy got stronger--winds increased and the pressure has fallen to 946 MB (that is exceptionally low and if it goes lower it could break records).. With more warm water for an eyewall to spin on, it may get even stronger before eventually hitting the Jersey coastline this evening with intense hurricane gusts. It will bring the ocean onto the beach with it. New York City will be faced with a tide of epic proportions. The vast wall of water is going to wreck the coast line. The federal government has issued stark and ominous warnings that if you are resident of an area evacuated and don't leave, think of a way that your body will be able to be identified. Perhaps that's a scare tactic. But it works. Lots of people are leaving and have only a few remaining hours to do so. The window has closed for many to escape what Sandy is going to bring..

The tsunami surprise

This reporting comes from NBC News: The tsunami hit with little warning and an alert, issued at short notice due to initial confusion among scientists about the quake's undersea epicenter, caused massive traffic congestion as motorists made a mass exodus from low-lying areas.

PREPARE

Horror Report may be unavailable if the power situation turns bad. Some models forecast Sandy to directly be over my home base some time around Monday/Tuesday here in Pennsylvania. Areas that were flooded last year from Irene and Lee will be flooded again, and a tumultuous few days is setting up weatherwise Should you be interested and we not be available to update, here are some websites you're sure to get good information from as the storm continues to unfold:

Accuweather has a running live blog as events develop about Sandy..Henry Margusity has a great blog and you can also find up to date information from him on TwitterHere are all of the latest maps and coordinates of SandyThe Weather Channel has great coverage of the stormAnd finally here is a good news feed and photo wire feed

Interest and intrigue peaking: Will Sandy be a tropical dud or be a Halloween fright?

The jury is out, weather models are still ferociously divided and changing constantly. What is clear though is that if all thing phase together in a scary way it could be a storm for the records and surely be the Grinchette that steaks Halloween. Or nothing more than a dud in the water.. Trick, or treat? Sandy will decide..

Solar blast from AR1598

As we reported just days ago, sunspot AR1598 had the potential to produce some major M class flares.. On October 23 it surpassed expectation with an X.1 class flare--some earthly technology may be impacted over the coming 48 hours, but the lack of a CME means that no aurora will be occurring from the event..

There are possibilities however that the sunspot could further affect the planet earth.. AR1598 is slowly rotating to be in the direct view of the planet..

Space watchers say another venting of solar activity could occur within 24 to 48 hours..

ALL THE ACTIVITY HAS LED TO THIS: $30 MIL 'WEAK-END'.. MUCH LESS THAN EARLY PROJECTIONS, FILM MAY BE SUFFERING FROM BAD REVIEWS AND STALE STORYLINE

It's a good domestic open for the fourth installment in the horror franchise but the $30 mil estimate is far lower than projections made Thursday that the movie could surpass $45 million total. Despite the somewhat weakened numbers compared to previous PARANORMAL releases the green light has been given to PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 5.. You read that right. Nikki Finke has more details..

Dreaming of another white Halloween?

It may not happen, but here is a weather forecast run from tonight's GFS model for Halloween night:



The white on the map is the forecast snow.

Just when you say it can't happen stop and recall Halloween 2011.

It happened then and can again.

As for me I'm nor hoping for it this early.

TAKING ANOTHER LOOK AT HALLOWEEN 3, THE SEASON OF THE WITCH

Years ago, I would host and attend regular movie parties. We'd sit and watch awful films, laugh at plots, mock the narrative, and just have genuine fun. It was like MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 with a bunch of immature brats and younger adults who wanted to stay young--all of us were not paid for our efforts, but I dare say we came up with good comedy. If only iPhones and YouTube were available in the late 1990s, we'd have great podcasts. Maybe we would have been sued by companies for copyright issues.
One film caught our attention early and became a long standing joke for life: Halloween 3, the Season of the Witch.
If you never saw it, don't be fooled by the name. It has nothing to do with the lunatic killer Michael Myers, and no it was not made by Rob Zombie. This movie was from director John Carpenter. He didn't want to create another Halloween starring 'The Shape' so instead he changed the story. This one features a mask making company called Silver Shamrock …

FIVE YEARS

I'll save the sappy stuff for the tenth anniversary. But today, October 20, 2012, is a pretty big deal. My wife Tara and I have been married now for 5 years as of 12noon today. Right now about 5 years ago the party was just beginning...a reception to end all receptions. And then some.

It has been an amazing five years. But even more amazing is contemplating just where exactly the time goes. Five years ago we were young and the future was ahead of us. Today we have a son and the future is here, moving quickly, becoming the past. Watching our son Ayden growing is a miracle in itself, but it also allows us to forget about our own aging process. I guess that is what our parents told us would happen...

Yes, indeed, five years back now a marriage just began. Today it's strong. Tomorrow it will continue. Of course there are fights and frowns, but there are also laughs and happiness. Relationships are helped with children. They bring meaning and something 'more' to the lives we …

Yet another study about the source of autism causing debate

The newest study says the common link of autistic kids may be high fructose corn syrup ..
No doubt that debate will arise from this.

It reminds me I want to rid my body and diet of high fructose corn syrup. No matter what those commercials may want you to believe about how close it is to sugar, it is not. Simple research and searching will yield ample studies and serious people warning others to stay away from the chemical sweetener..

A meteor lights up the sky over California.. The meteor created a boom, shook houses, and now debris is scattered from the meteor..

The meteor blazing through the sky was visible and caused mouths to open in awe throughout California..

A few days ago a rare earthquake hit Maine.. and now another rare earthquake has rattled another odd state: This time Nebraska.. It wasn't overly strong but it shook nerves. Lots of 'rare' places are suddenly getting extraordinary events..

Now a number of states are preparing for earthquakes.. the proof is a multi-state earthquake drill.. With 'rare' events in Maine and Nebraksa, plus the New Madrid fault worries and nuclear plants in numerous states, can we really prepare for something big?

A major problem occurred throughout the Midwest Thursday as ferociously high winds hit the Plains, causing the drought-scourged landscape to whip up with dust.. several multi-vehicle pile ups took place on roadways covered i…
