While of course I feel for the family, I do feel terrible for the driver if it's true there was no wrong doing. It's easy to blame drivers with so many hit/runs, phone use, reckless driving, etc., but ever since my husband and I years ago saw a girl run straight into a cross-street by the tunnel and was hit by a van who could have done nothing differently, I have empathy for drivers who were doing nothing wrong and now live with this guilt.

That's good to hear about your brother.

Jose I believe is expected to turn out to sea, though of course everyone is watching to be sure.

MDM, can you explain the 3 red lines? I follow Joe Bastardi on Twitter and wondered this. Are the left and right lines the borders of the cone, and the middle line is the projected track?

You seem to be the only one caring about this. Most of us are taking what information MDM is sharing and just using it as a heads up. No one has remotely said they are fucking stocking up on water or gas....

You either don't understand what "hype" really is or you never have been impacted by flooding in JC. MDM's posts are always informative and helpful for those residents who prefer notice of a potential storm earlier rather than later.

FYI, I got some intel from the PM running the project. We are moving and needed to know WTF the plan was for our moving truck.

They are starting at 1st and working up to 6th, focused on milling. Then I believe they will do Brunswick to Manila.

Then they will do paving, starting at 1st and repeating it.

Re: Dear Person Stealing Tiny Flower Pots from Our Stoop...

Just an update to this...

Tonight my husband saw an 8-year old girl and her mom rip a flower from our friend's pot. We yelled at them but the mom could give two shits.

They were walking down 5th toward Coles from Monmouth. Mom was Asian with long brown hair, big dipshit sunglasses and a small dog. Girl had long brown hair as well. Mom pretty much looked like a vapid asshole on her cell who could care less.

Our friend had witnessed our pots being stolen back in May and confirmed this description matched who he saw. So if you happen to see them doing something similar, it's a habit.

Back in the '90s in Hoboken, my friend had his flowering plants ripped out of their planters. He replanted with new ones, and sunk several razor blades into the dirt surrounding each one. A few days later, he found one plant partially dislodged, and a trail of blood drops down the sidewalk. No further vandalizing of his plants ever occurred.


OUCH!!!! Best idea I've gotten on this thread :)

That my 5 year-old planted, I am sure there's a special place in hell for you, you fucking asshole. I hope the $3 you saved at Target for a 2-inch tall pot was worth it.

We ended up contacting HoneyMovers and Adam was great. It seems like the best option so far. We have someone coming tomorrow (at 6:45 a.m.!) to do an estimate from L and L. It's nice to know that there are a fair number of non-crap moving companies in the area. They're usually tough to come by. Thank you for the recommendations, all!


I plan on calling soon. Do you mind me asking when you're moving? I have never used movers before and wasn't sure how much time we should allow for reserving them. We are moving 6/29.

Re: Jury duty questions

Home away from home


I did my 2 days in Feb. The juror management staff do a great job of communicating what to expect and keeping you updated. They acknowledge jury duty is not exactly loved by the public and show their appreciation. You can also leave for short breaks as long as you sign out.

I did get called near the end of the first day for a case. You then go into a courtroom and the rules are more severe: no cell phone, food, drinks, talking etc. I had gone from essentially working on my laptop to not being able to communicate with anyone (which sucked because I was right in the middle of buying/selling a house). You can ask to be excused and go into the hallway.

By the middle of the second day they had their jury and we were released. It was a smooth and, actually, interesting process.

Running to Hoboken: Snow Melting/Shoveling Status

I need to start training for the Newport 10K. I usually run down 6th, cut over by Battelo, go around the lighthouse and then head into Hoboken along the water. Can anyone give me a sense of whether those areas/sidewalks are pretty clear? Seems like a lot of melting had happened.

Thanks!

I literally just kicked off a project at work to do research to explore the "branch of the future" and what that means for customers/employees.

I know I personally go into a Bank of America branch only when I absolutely need to: money order, large withdrawal...maybe 1-2X a year. They have kiosks now that are starting to offer many of these services.

I welcome everyone's thoughts to add to my data :)

Thanks for this reminder! I went to Key Food today and bought a ton of canned and packaged items. I then brought my daughter with me to drop it off at St. Lucy's. They were very kind and appreciative and we put it directly into the kitchen where 2 lovely volunteers happily took it. I'm sure it'll be put to good use.

I thought this quote was interesting and believe this is the crux of what anti-Trump people are grappling with, including myself:

Many people are fearful (of being deported, families splitting up, losing healthcare) because they take his language and campaign promises literally. Then, because of the shock of his win, everyone had to quickly take him seriously. I think these feelings may temper as everyone begins to see that the "showman" Trump will be more even-keeled as he approaches the office (i.e., not completely repealing Obamacare).


If you haven't already, you should read this:

I’m a Muslim, a woman and an immigrant. I voted for Trump.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/gl ... igrant-i-voted-for-trump/



Thanks for sharing. It's been interesting to hear why so many people felt they needed to be secretive about voting for Trump and why the polls weren't representative of reality and this silent group. PBS Newshour had some great segments tonight from diverse voters for both candidates and from high schoolers. Mark Sheilds, Democrat, and David Brooks, Republican, reflected on the results and they both agreed that the worst thing anyone can do is assume that the extreme versions of either side represent the majority, because they don't.
