.....rain expected to start falling tomorrow.

"We're still waiting for them to tell us how severe this potential storm is supposed to be," Macfarlan said. "It's unknown right now."

Ok, so since when has it been acceptable for the national weather service to not be able to accurately predict storms a day in advance?

Not only have no clue the day before, but in many cases, get it wrong DURING the event!

Sorry to rant, but this is just insane!

you're right though! we were just talking about this yesterday...Channel 69 was saying it was pouring out at 11.00 in the morning and the sun was shining...they haven't been getting any forecasts right for a long time...even the snow.

All folks who build or have built in flood zones. It's not like you don't have a ton of advance time (like months and month, maybe even years...) to change your situation...

It keeps flooding and you keep staying in the same place. What should the rest of us call that?

Tell that to New Orleans.

I wish it was warm enough out to do some kayaking or rafting, this water level would be awesome.

Now were these reservoirs built to give water to New York City or for flood control? Anawer that and we can go further. As for building in flood prone areas, I feel that the people don't want to wash their feet or they want the government to do everything for them. When I went to New Orleans some of the people refused to get off their dead butts to do anything with the comment"The government will take care of this."

It was only a matter of time before someone blamed New York for their problems.

I am doing my rain dance to the scrapple Gods as we speak.
Oh great powerful beings, take it upon yourself to flood this heinous valley! Clean it of all the vermin and driftwood that has lived here for so many decades. Make room for the good folks from NY and NJ to settle down and make this place nice. Out with the old, in with the new!

It's a good thing ring bologna, scrapple and cigarette cartons make EXCELLENT FLOATATION DEVICES

And on the news(WFMZ) it will start raining at 1 or 2,or 3,4,5. Probably between 1and 5. AND we might get 1,2,or 3 inches of rain. We are saved though because they will kept their eye on this and the rivers and hope that it goes out to sea. Good luck .

it never ceases to amaze me, right here in Lower Mount Bethel, with 3 floods in what...18 months? They have rebuilt again, up, up, up so high on cinder blocks...these big beautiful homes...then to top it off recently there was the article about Rendell's idea for ALL OF US to pay this with more taxes of some sort....IN HIS DREAMS...I bought an old schoolhouse, remodeled it, over the years, on firm ground....If they want to live dangerously, let them pay
