Re: Hurricane Irma possible: Next Tuesday thru Thursday
#1

The NHC has downgraded to Cat 3 with 120 mph winds. There's an extreme wind warning in effect for Naples/Marco Island area for winds over 115mph. Just because you don't seem them on the wind observation, which are generally listed for every 4-6 minutes, not continous, doesn't mean they're not happening.

These are not tropical storm force winds. There will be some bad surge on the backend of the hurricane



Extreme Wind Warning

...AN EXTREME WIND WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 330 PM EDT FOR
SOUTHWESTERN COLLIER COUNTY...

At 235 PM EDT, National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
extreme winds above 115 mph, associated with the eyewall of
Hurricane Irma, were moving onshore over Marco Island, Goodland,
Everglades City, and Chokoloskee, moving north at 15 mph. This is
an extremely dangerous and life-threatening situation!

Locations impacted include...
Naples, Marco Island, Chokoloskee, Golden Gate Estates and Everglades
City.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

TAKE COVER NOW! Treat these imminent extreme winds as if a tornado
was approaching and move immediately to the safe room in your
shelter. Take action now to protect your life!

The safest place to be during a major landfalling hurricane is in a
reinforced interior room away from windows. Get under a table or
other piece of sturdy furniture. Use mattresses, blankets or pillows
to cover your head and body. Remain in place through the passage of
these life-threatening conditions.

Oh goodness, this is a Category 4 storm. Max substained winds are 130 mph, just because you see lower wind speeds on the internet doesn't mean that storm is falling apart.

Instead of armchiar/browser speculation go read the latest advisory from the NHC - http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATCPA1+shtml/101448.shtml

I'm going to trust the experts who do this for living, many of whom are in the path of this storm. There is a forecasted surge of 10 to 15 feet from Cape Sable to Captiva Island. Irma is strong enough to suck/blow the water out of bays on the west coast, that water is coming back with a bunch more when the wind starts to come out of the west and the pressure increases.

There's plenty of hyping going on with the media coverage but make no mistake, this is NOT a "super hyped storm"

You might need to change your brakes that early if a majority of your driving is city stop and go driving. Not very likely if it's mostly highway miles.

I'd recommend you do a search on your model/year and brakes to see what comes up. And get a second opinion.

Historic rules generally only apply to what can be seen from the street/sidewalk. So, yes, you can pretty much do what you want in the back.

This is why you need to get someone who is experienced dealing with JC Historic and knows the rules.

As for vinyl windows, there are many vinyl windows that are good. They are considerably less expensive, require less maintenance (no painting.)

Wait - are you saying I *can* install vinyl windows on non-street facing windows? So, in other words: street facing windows must be compliant, but for non-street facing wondows - all bets are off???

Given the vinyl windows are so much cheaper, are they any less "good"?

It was actually really easy once you succumb to spending the money. I went with Pella and they did everything. Told me the correct windows, filed the paperwork with Dan, installed them and even repaired the rotted frames.
At first I was really upset about it, they were SO much more expensive than the vinyl ones I used on the non street facing windows, but now that's it done they look SO nice. The quality really is so much nicer.

If you live in a condo just make sure your association is aware that EVERYONE must replace their windows with the same thing.

Based on my experience you should get the person doing your windows to file the permit and work with historic, not you. If your contractor has not worked with Dan and/or Historic you might want to consider hiring someone who has, it will likely make your life easier and potentially save you some time and money.

Everyone I know that dealt with Dan and Historic got jerked around, told they had to do ridiculous things like they can ONLY put in Marvin windows, etc.

When I did my renovations my contractor dealt with Dan.

I stand by my comments. I believe that Dixon should be held to a consistently high level of responsibility and accountability wherever it invests, not just within a couple of blocks of the PATH. I would expect the same of Americans investing in Australia.


I sympathize with the inclination toward higher or lower expectations for a property owner depending on the perception of their wealth. But ownership standards are not determined by the bankroll of the owner.

Standards are the same for homeowners regardless of their economic status and it should be that way. Otherwise they would be impossible to enforce.

If neighbors accepted the conditions of a property prior to the acquisition by new owners, it seems a bit capricious to attack the new ownership for the same previously accepted conditions. Had they created the conditions about which there are now complaints, that would be a different story. But that's not what is being said here.

There is a place for how we as neighbors act based on who owns a property. For example, if a large corporation was not shoveling its sidewalks, I might be inclined to report them. If the senior citizen next door was not shoveling her sidewalks, I would just shovel it for her.

At the same time, if any homeowner is causing a nuisance or is in violation of the law or housing codes, neighbors should feel free to address the owner directly and if unsatisfied, report them to the appropriate authorities.



Matt, I could not have said it better myself

In the Bible it states -
If a man commits adultery with another man's wife--with the wife of his neighbor--both the adulterer and the adulteress are to be put to death.
- Leviticus 20:10

My friend had an affair with my wife, the government is forcing me to deny my religion but not allowing me to round up a posse to kill both of them. This passage can't be more clear. And it is against the law for me to kill them. I am a person of faith and I feel like a fraud being forced to call Jesus a lair. Maybe I should just sue the adulteress and adulterer to death as someone intelligently said here.

And 1984 HAS arrived.

The first amendment of the constitution guarantees me freedom of religion and I am being denied!!!!

The direction of Bay Street between Erie and Newark was changed so it's now 1-way going east, I am guessing this was done today to prepare for the closure of Newark Ave tomorrow. They put up new Do Not Enter signs at Erie St. I watched for about 5 minutes and saw several cars go through the wrong way, people were trying to get drivers to notice the new signs.

Newark Airport has shut down 1 of the 2 long runways, that run north-south, for 60 days for modifications and repairs. To deal with the reduced capacity while the runway is closed they are going to be using their 1 east-west runway more than usual. The approaches for this airport can bring planes over western Jersey City. The flight paths for this runway is not changing, they will be used more over the next 2 months because 1 of the other runways is closed.

It seems that over the last year the helicopter traffic has stepped up considerably flying west from NYC. It appears that Route 1-9/78 is the new route for choppers headed to Newark.

There's a heliport in Kearny that opened in 2010, it's on the Passaic River just south of the Pulaski Skyway. They use the route over the Pulaski to fly to/from NYC, they have to fly below 1000 feet in this air corridor. People should be worried about the helicopters flying to and from the heliport since they have to fly so low.

There's a lot of chopers based there, they also provide fuel and maintenance. They have their own facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/KearnyHeliport

The great thing about these is they can be used to inflate almost anything - bicycle tires, air mattresses, exercise balls...


Our Soul came with a pump and sealant instead of a spare! I guess it was a move to save both money and weight. Some owner buy a spare anyway.


It's about the money, the weight of a spare isn't more than 1% of the curb weigh, not really significant.

I wouldn't have a car without a full size spare. If you have anything more than a small hole, like you might get from a nail, sealant isn't going to be very useful. And driving on a donut spare for any duration isn't much fun.

And maybe I am just unlikely but when I have a tire issue it seems to happen at inconvenient times and places.

Now, if you can't or won't change a tire then I guess it doesn't really matter if you have a spare in your trunk.

Tire pressure should be checked when the tires are cold. That's hard to do if you're driving to get free air unless you're going to Costco for their free Nitrogen.

Most people forget to check their spare tires until they need them. If you don't have your own pump don't forget.

Re: Bayonne: Man astounded by bill for 4 stitches at ‘most expensive hospital in America’

Quite a regular

$14K for stitches is outrageous. But, I think there might be more to the story.

My guess is that the kid had to be sedated because of the location of the cut and his age. Most 3 year olds I know would not sit still for 1 stitch to the chin let alone 4. Pinning down a freaked out kid isn't a good option.

If there was an anesthesiologist involved the cost would be much higher. Also they would be in the ER much longer than if it was just 4 stitches.

About 5 years a friend got stitches in the ER, the total was ~$1400. I think that's stitoo higll h.

Moral of the story is if you need a cut stitched up and the bleeding has stopped call your doctor or find an urgent care center in your network. Save the ER for life threatening situations.
