Hurricane Sandy aka the “snor’eastercane”: proof the world is probably ending soon

Alright, I’m not one to get all apocalyptic on everyone, but I do think it’s somewhat strange that over the past couple of years both the weather and various natural phenomenon have been particularly intense. Like the hurricane that hit New York, the earthquake in New York, the earthquake in Ohio…I could go on and on. But it seems like another storm is headed towards New York City, except for that it’s not your average fall rainstorm storm. It’s more like a snow storm hurricane, aka the “snor’eastercane” and “Frankenstorm.”


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts a, “widespread” storm with “gale-force winds, heavy rain, flooding and maybe snow starting Sunday and stretching past Halloween on Wednesday,” likely to cost over a billion dollars in damage come mid next week.

So New Yorkers and Brooklynites, might wanna reconsider that Halloween getup you were planning on wearing Wednesday, as this one could mean a weeklong experience of pure misery. However, there is still that uncertainty of the whole thing, and Sandy could die out come its time to hit the shore. But experts are sure this one’s gonna be brutal.
