Honest to God, I just got back from the grocery store. I got a week and a half’s worth of food and some scented candles for blackouts and the unlikely event that a smoking hot female gets trapped in my house during the end of the world storm and wants to breed profusely for the sole purpose of procreation in the humanless world that we will have to face on Christmas morning.
With that off my chest, I give you want you’ve all been waiting for, continuing coverage of:
STORM HYPE 2010!!!!!!!
www.TahoeWeatherDiscussion.com is having a field day with this.
“I hope everyone heeded my warning last weekend that it was your last chance for shopping. I don’t recommend traveling this weekend.”
Apparently the end of the world will come via the 2 storm in a row, ie double whammy, ie 1-2 punch variety.
“The two storms look almost identical with identical snowfall amounts. Just double the weekend amounts by Thursday so that is 6-10 feet on the resorts. Many of the resorts are in the 150 inch range already this season for total snowfall, and another 100 inches would put them at 50% or more of their total average annual snowfall. Winter doesn’t even start till Tuesday so that is crazy.”
www.NOAA.gov is also having a bit of fun with this apocalyptic situation as well:
HOURLY SNOWFALL RATES MAY EXCEED 2 TO 4 INCHES PER HOUR DURING THE
STRONGEST PORTION OF THE STORM. 3 TO 8 FEET OF SNOW IS LIKELY IN
THOSE LIVING IN REMOTE…HIGHER ELEVATION AREASIN THE SIERRA COULD BE SNOWED IN FOR MULTIPLE DAYS AND SHOULD
THE SNOW WILL BE VERY HEAVY AND WET WHICH COMBINED WITH THE
STRONG…DAMAGING WINDS COULD DOWN POWER LINES AND TREES. THIS MAY
CAUSE WIDESPREAD POWER OUTAGES ACROSS THE SIERRA
Luckily, the only thing you have to do this weekend is go to the GNAR premier at Alpine Meadows at 8pm on Friday December 17th. It’s gonna be a raucous, End of the World Party, that will make you wish the world wasn’t going to end. I’ll even be there talking about some ridiculous line that I normally would never do but, because I don’t think we’ll survive until monday, I’ll be claiming that I’m going to ski it.
