    Well, in my part of of NC not to bad. I live in laurinburg, NC, and we just got strong winds and lots of rain. In the others parts of North Carolina, I don't know what happened.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Nothing exciting happening here, apart from it being colder near Lake Michigan. I read about a couple states being hit with heavy snow.

    Yep mate, heavy snow brought in with Sandy

    While high winds and rain brought on by superstorm Sandy tormented residents along much of the East Coast, the state of West Virginia was blanketed in a freak snowstorm as a result of the weather.

    Roughly a quarter of a million people across West Virginia lost power on Monday as Sandy caused extreme weather conditions across a large chunk of the US.

    More than a dozen counties across West Virginia were subjected to unseasonal blizzard warnings, and schools in as many as 39 different districts throughout the state were shut down as the storm rolled in.

    In the town of Webster Springs, residents were forced to endure upwards of 17 inches of snow, a rare occurrence in the state for this time of year.

    "It's a mess out there and people should stay home if they can until our first responders can get out there, clear the roads and get to those who need the most assistance," state Department of Transportation spokeswoman Leslie Fitzwater tells the Associated Press.

    Additionally, the AP reports that more than 30 local highways were closed by snow, ice, high water, and downed trees and power lines, and by Tuesday morning at least one motorist had been killed as a result of a car crash blamed on the weather.

    A blizzard warning remains in effect for much of West Virginia through Wednesday as meteorologists predict more snow to fall across the state. Even as the snowstorm subsides, though, residents of the state can still expect heavy winds and intense flooding, making maneuvering across roads treacherous and downright dangerous.

    "This is going to be kind of a triple punch for us in West Virginia," West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says.

    Sandy brought gusts of winds exceeding 80 miles-per-hour up the East Coast on Monday, but much of the country was spared from the snowstorm that touched down in West Virginia.

    The link in this quote is video of whats been talked about
    http://on.rt.com/btc1bi


    ĎOyster Creek proximity to New York poses threat during floodingí - Prof. Busby

    Less than 24 hours after Hurricane Sandy ripped through eastern United States, the countryís oldest nuclear power plant Ė located in Forked River, New Jersey - has been has been put on alert.

    You can never make nuclear power stations perfectly safe. You canít make it impossible for these situations to occur and when they do occur, they can be pretty catastrophic, Professor Christopher Busby from the European Committee on Radiation Risks told RT. The Professor added Oyster Creek plant was a particular risk, located just 65 miles from New York City.

    All of the power stations in the area were built against the express wishes of the people who lived there. They were pushed through by some kind of federal axe which overcame the opposition of the people, he said.

    Busby spoke to RT about the possible dangers that could occur if waters from Hurricane Sandy flood the nuclear stationís cooling system.

    RT: What are the potential dangers as you see it?

    Christopher Busby: I think itís quite unlikely that anything bad will happen. Itís not like a tsunami, it's not some big tidal wave coming at them. The problem would be that the cooling system would become flooded. The electrical systems that back up the cooling system, so there wonít be any cooling. And in these situations, with nuclear power stations, even though there might be a very remote risk of something happening, when it does happen, itís pretty catastrophic.

    RT:It brings to mind Japan's Fukushima disaster last year. Are there better protection measures in place now than there were in Fukushima?

    CB: The problem is that with all nuclear power stations, you can never make them absolutely perfectly safe. You can make them as safe as you can get, but you canít make it impossible for these situations to occur. And when they do occur, especially in this one, which is 65 miles south of New York City Ė with a very, very high population density Ė it would be pretty catastrophic.

    RT:Oyster Creek is America's oldest nuclear power plant. It was built 2 years before Fukushima. Could its age be a factor in any potential danger?

    CB: Of course. The older the nuclear power station, the less good the integrity of the various control systems and the actual metallic components of the control systems, too Ė of course if theyíre older, theyíre more corroded, they can be brittle as a result of neutron effects, so yes of course thatís certainly a factor. In fact, oyster creek, like all of those power stations near nyc were built against the express wishes of the people who lived there. They were pushed through by some kind of federal axe which overcame the opposition of people who lived there.

    RT:Officials say there are currently NO protective actions taking place outside the nuclear facility, as there is no imminent threat from radiation. Should precautions be taken anyway?

    CB: I think itís more likely that thereís nothing much they can do. So thereís no point in scaring people and trying to run around and do stuff. There isnít much they can do. All they have to do there is sit and keep their fingers crossed and hope that the flood waters donít go so high that they actually flood the control systems and the electricity which backed it all up. Thatís really the problem. So itís not really like Fukushima in the sense of the huge amounts of energy that were unleashed then. It could be just a slow flooding affair, which could be just as nasty.

    RT:Whatís the worst case scenario if this did happen? Would it go up like Fukushima, or does the fact that itís already closed down mitigate any bad things that might happen there?

    CB: Well you could still have a meltdown, of course. The fuel inside the shutdown reactor is still extremely hot and has to be cooled, so if you donít cool it then it gets very hot and can melt down. So yes, of course, you can still have a catastrophic problem.

    Hasn't been bad. Most importantly, haven't had any power outages, just a few flickers.

    I've got family in the Appalachian Mountains. Normally in October they get no snow or at the most an inch or two for the entire month. They got 22 inches from this storm alone and consider themselves lucky because some areas got 3-4 feet! For me, my basement flooded.
