It sounds like this goddamned Frankenstorm is headed straight for me. If it comes ashore near Delaware, we are going to get slammed. And it sounds like it is going to be a giant disaster even if doesn’t come ashore. Some people are even saying that it could impact the election which won’t occur for a week or more after the worst of the storm. The worst will be if there is a lot of snow because there are still leaves on the trees. The weight on the branches will cause downed power lines from that alone, and then we’ll have tropical force winds on top of it. I can imagine a situation where the eastern half of Pennsylvania has no power and people are still clearing roadways. That would be great news for Mitt Romney. Hell, it could help him Virginia, too.
Go vote early if you can. In Pennsylvania, we can’t.
