“PAX” PREPARES TO DROP ANOTHER WINTRY LOAD ON DEEP SOUTH
South Carolina didn’t handle the last winter system that came its way exceedingly well … which is especially disappointing when you consider the system was a bit of a disappointment itself.
Sure, the Palmetto State handled things better than Georgia … but that’s not exactly a compliment. Nor was it a comfort to the tens of thousands of Lowcountry motorists whose lives were disrupted by the incompetence demonstrated by S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s Department of Transportation (SCDOT).
(No … really).
Anyway, another batch of wintry weather is headed toward the Deep South this week (again … it’s gotta be all that global warming).
So will the Palmetto State be ready this time?
We’ll soon find out …
According to The Weather Channel, Winter Storm “Pax” is preparing to blanket the south with more freezing rain, ice, sleet and snow.
“Tuesday night into Wednesday, the wintry mess of snow, sleet and freezing rain will likely linger in the southern Appalachians and adjacent Piedmont of north Georgia and the western Carolinas while spreading farther east into central North Carolina and the South Carolina Midlands and northward into Virginia and the Delmarva Peninsula,” the station notes. “Significant ice accumulations are possible over parts of Georgia and the Carolinas with this phase of the storm.”
Fortunately for Haley, current forecasts do not call for icy conditions in Charleston, S.C. – which saw its iconic Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge shut down on multiple occasions during the last storm.
Both the Midlands and Upstate regions of South Carolina are likely to see varying amounts of winter precipitation, though … so yeah … go ahead and plan on the entire state shutting down.
What not to plan on? Bum-rushing Weather Channel reporter Jim Cantore …
Don’t salt the bridge, you’ll destroy it!
No, Max, I ain’t looking that one up……!!
dilute Hydrochloric Acid.
Umm…. I was just noticing you have some sulfur in there as well?
Chemistry is one of those…. well, let’s see.. um.. when you learn something… you have to… especially with science…
oh, fuck it, you wouldn’t understand.
My grandson asked me yesterday – do police kill people? I said “yes, they kill people” then he asked – do army kill people? (not bothering to correct his syntax) I said “yes, but they kill lots MORE people” and he gave me an illustration – he made a gun out of one hand and a man out of the other and said “like this?” and went ‘pccchooooo!” with the gun hand and dropped the man hand, saying “aaaahhh!!!” I said, “yeah, like that” but then he asked if cops kill army people… so I started trying to tell him that cops are sometimes ex-army people.. and that army people kill people in ‘other’ countries.. but he was losing interest, since we were moving away from the shooting and dying sounds.
I dropped out of my high school chemistry class in the third week. One day my ass started to get hot, and when I turned around the girl at the table behind me was looking in her textbook while she was holding the bunsen burner at an angle. This class was dangerous.
You have to have a project to keep your interest, like double methylated phenylethylamine
Thanks, Max, but I’m still not looking up that one….
Sodium chloride mixing with dihydrogen monoxide? Jesus, what if it gets into our oceans?
I’m a bit more concerned about Fukishima leaking tens of thousands of gallon of irradiated water into the ocean on a daily basis then a one time event every 20 years under which trace amounts of a pervasive chemical in our environment are used mitigate the effects on thousands of people for a couple of days.
But then again, that’s why I’m an engineering idiot!
Quick, alert Haley’s brother a cover for his Lamborghini…
Her poor brother he has it so bad..
Ah who will be Haley’s next drunk agency director to go down?
Now when you say go down and Haley in the same sentence…
Winter Storm Haleys on it…hahahah
Nikki Haley speaks at a Sikh Temple
Oh well,We are S.O.L. the D.O.T. does not have money to buy salt!
FWIW, We are S.O.L., the D.O.T. doesn’t have $$$ to buy NaCl.
Acronyms and abbreviations.
Go big or go home.
I wonder what out of state fundraising trips she will have to cancel in order to pretend to be on top of things here. It’s a shame when those picky state-related issues keeps her from shaking down idiots across the other 49 states.
If you’re so F*#king Stupid that you have to depend on Haley to tell you what to do, quit whining when she gives you advice you don’t like.
Grow a set of Gazoombas, Dumb@$$…quit being a weak, helpless idiot liberal, blaming everything on er’body else..
I just love the sight of the back of your gazoombas as I’m packing your fugdge Tango.
When the only answer comes from a vapid Dumb@$$#$ like you, it’s a sign I slapped you imbeciles upside the had so hard, your teeth are cracked…
Again: You dull-@$$ liberals complain about everything Haley does…but when you’re too Stupid to get out of a storm…that’s her fault too…
No wonder your god-Obama is failing so miserable. He’s about as smart as you….
It’s been quite a while,man.Are you ready for a really big load?
Damned Tango! Did Jesus tell you to slap people you don’t even know? Is that the new Christianity? cracking teeth? Now, listen here! You bring that up in bible study class on Wednesday, ok? I’m serious.. we’re all worried about you.
I’m not worried about him…
oh come on… I know you’re a sensitive guy… when you see those commercials of the dogs with their heads on their paws, their little eyebrows lifting on their sad little faces when a person who might play with them, or bring them a treat comes by their cage with that background music “you… are… so.. beautiful….” [pause] “toooo… meeeeee”
Even the most mangy, crippled up dog… I’ll bet you don’t want to see it get the pump box, if it could be fixed up like new and given to a fambily with a little boy that needs a dog to love…
OK! OK! You got me with that. Now I am weepy thinking about mine who have gone to Doggy Heaven.
see? Now I know Damned Tango isn’t as cute as the mangiest, most crippled up dog.. but if you stretch your imagination, you might see him pushing a shopping cart down a dark alley and 9″ jumping out of the shadows…
..hearing the pitiful screams as he struggles less and less… finally giving in, and going limp… and after some time, emerging sadly from the alley… pushing that same cart… wondering if he’ll call.
Jesus HATES evil people. He SLAPPED the money-changers Upside the head.
But I have to laugh at God-hating liberals like you. You’re the level of idiot who bashes Christians…yet you think we’re stupid enough to adhere to your standards, because you liberally translate the Bible to your desires, in an attempt to control people.
Nice try Dumb@$$…but you’d be better off w/ a Tele-Vangelist show, bilking little old ladies out of the SS checks…
Jesus HATES evil people.
actually Jesus loves evil people. It was his core message – that we should *also* love evil people. His hate is reserved for pretentious religious figures. See Matthew 23.
It’s getting late, GT. Unless you’re being paid to troll all day, I suggest you hop in the back of the truck…
“He SLAPPED the money-changers Upside the head.”
No HE did not.
Don’t just make up $h!t, BigTime.
Jesus took the moneylenders for a spin in his classic Plymouth.
The New Testament clearly states that,
“Jesus drove the money-changers out of the temple, in a Fury.”
Figuratively you imbecile. The same way I slap you brain-dead idiots upside the head..IN A FURY..
Because like Jesus, if you are not angry at the lies, Greed and deceit you people perpetuate to rob good people blind… you HATE justice.
it was a big blue plymouth.
you’re so F*#king Stupid
Tango, Tango, Tango…
and here I thought you were a *Christian*
.But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
That applies to you, too, brother!
And you’re more F*#kin Stupid than FITS and Co.
uh oh… now I’m thinking that’s not the language you use in church, or around the house… I hope there aren’t any little kids in your house that look over your shoulder… “grampa, whatcha doin’?” [rubs head] “I’m slapping the shit out of fucking stupid liberals”
Perhaps his anger is the result of his rejection by NASA for a seat on the one-way trip to MARS.
He probably applied for pilot.
“Perhaps his anger is the result of his rejection by NASA for a seat on the one-way trip to MARS.”
Hey….if BigTime needs references…
The space shuttle went into orbit for a fifteen month
mission. This was a joint mission of America, Russia, and Japan. Each astronaut was allowed to take with him a maximum of 125 pounds of personal possessions. The American took 125 pounds of Yuengling beer; the Russian took 125 pounds of Cuban cigars; and the Japanese took his 100 pound wife. Upon returning the American was looking and feeling mellow; the Japanese and his wife were carrying a ten pound baby boy; and the Russian was screaming – “Has anybody got a damn match?”
Gazoombas? Really T? I’m sure your manboobs are big enough for the both of us. Just make sure you keep wearing that white tshirt in the Myrtle Beach surf so the canvas rebel flag float doesn’t chafe your nipples.
I don’t depend on Haley to tell me what to do. If that were the case, I would be waiting a long time looking for any semblance of leadership from her. She’s too bust embarrassing the shit out of her constituents every time she opens that trap of hers.
She’ll just dress up a scarecrow in one of her hideous outfits and go fundraising anyways.
Got a generator and a 4Wd jeep and was raised in West By God Virginia where Ilearned to drive in shit WAY worse than this piss-assed state can ever offer
Bring it on
Go back to pimping Myrtle Beach & Charleston
Talk and no action is all this state is good for anyhoo>>>>>>>>>>
I’ve heard of West Virginia.
“I’ve heard of West Virginia.”
Don’t. Even. Go. There.
I grew up in Western Michigan (lake effect snow like Buffalo)so I have y’all beat!
I have met 6 girls and 2 guys in Columbia who left Buffalo to go to USC – and none of them were related. All gave the same reason – to escape the winter storms.
“Nor was it a comfort to the tens of thousands of Lowcountry motorists whose lives were disrupted by the incompetence demonstrated by S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s Department of Transportation (SCDOT).”
HARD TO BE COMPETENT WHEN YOUR HALEY APPOINTED EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR IS IN HANDCUFFS IN THE BACK OF A SQUAD CAR REEKING OF BOOZE!
Quit whining you Spoiled-@$$ little brat.Take some responsibility. Get your @$$ off the road before whining that Haley did not tell you to, in time. You had all the info you needed to make a decision.
Take some responsibility for your own life…It’s not her job to run YOUR life,,,idiot…
Damn! I agree with GT. Must be he second coming. If you know it is going to snow and the state is having freezing rain, get your milk and bread and stay home. All the bridges in the state have the bridge freezes before the road sign. Guess what a bridge over a harbor is going to do in those conditions. Freeze!
You take some responsibility, Tango…put down the computer and lay some salt on the steps of that trailer.
Hey, Nolf, looks like it’s time to fire up the old flat-screen with the satellite hookup and monitor…
Uber Storm Chaser Chief Meteorologist/Climatologist John Cessarach talk[ing] about some Polar Vortex Blizzard on the Eco-friendly, Green, Low Carbon Footprint, Sustainable, Solar Powered 5G Mega Doppler Triple Viper Net 5000S HD 3D Digital Billion Gigabyte LASER/RADAR array system….with 15 day FUTURECAST.
TBG wil bring the beer. You bring the popcorn likker. Let’s party like DOT officials!
Hmmm – did you factor in the cumulative effects of beer farts?
I’m sick up and fed with all this bs about the *environment*!
Close the weather stations, and save the money!
Try going to Fitsnews Headquarters – tell them you’re the new intern..!!
Poor WISTV Storm Chaser Meteorologist Ben Tanner. I do not think he has caught up on his sleepless nights since he first forecast the last storm, a full week before it hit. Watch him to be “punch drunk” from lack of sleep by Tuesday night.
I’m used to slipping and sliding around on slippery vomit all the time. Ice ain’t nothing for me to walk on. I hope RCPL will be open Tuesday and Wednesday.
I sure would like to have some of that global warming about now. LOL It will get here about August just like every year.
No, no, no…global climate change, that way you can cover the last 4.5 billion years.
Folks like you are the reason I have been forced to conclude anyone with a brain has abandoned the Republican Party. I just can’t find anyone left who doesn’t just repeat what they hear on the Fake News Network, Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck. With the exception of Idcydm. He is usually spouting real GOP talking point, but it takes him about two months to catch up on his reading, so he is usually about 2 months behind.
By the way since we are gambling on the future of our planet based on the anecdotal evidence of the temperature where you are. I see your its cold in SC today and raise you the 15 year drought in the Southwest which is threatening the water supply of 30 million people, the fact the North Pole will be ice free this summer, the ozone hole over Antarctica, the melting Greenland Ice sheet, and the fact that the average worldwide temperature is actually going up every year.
We see you missed the memo that “One of the world’s leading climate change research centres has been accused of manipulating data on global warming after thousands of private emails and documents were leaked.
Hackers targeted the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit and published the files, including some personal messages, on the internet.
Among the most damaging is one which appears to suggest using a ‘trick’ to massage years of temperature data to ‘hide the decline’.”
Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1229740/Hackers-expose-global-warming-Claims-leaked-emails-reveal-research-centre-massaged-temperature-data.html#ixzz2sw7Eum7D
Or this memo:
“Hundreds of private emails and documents allegedly exchanged between some of the world’s leading climate scientists during the past 13 years have been stolen by hackers and leaked online, it emerged today.””Climate change sceptics who have studied the emails allege they provide “smoking gun” evidence that some of the climatologists colluded in manipulating data to support the widely held view that climate change is real, and is being largely caused by the actions of mankind.”
And if this does not set your teeth grinding, that hockey stick chart is also a hoax.
You really have to ask why would these people say otherwise? So the scientists were easily manipulated because they would lose research funding. Why would Al Gore be the front man and who put him up to it?
While were are at it, maybe you can explain criss-cross aircraft flight patterns when the FAA has certain corridors and altitudes all commercial, private air flight plans must adhere to. No one can fly a criss-cross or parallel flight pattern without prior FAA flight plan approval. And if approved, why over criss-cross or any other variant thereof outside normal flight corridors over our fair city?
Why doesn’t it surprise me that a Republican brings up an old, largely discredited story by a Rupert Murdock publication. Same ole, same ole. All brains have left the building. The vast majority of climatologist world wide agree global warming is real and that human activity has accelerated it.
Mt. Pinatubo (sp?) in one eruption put more pollution into the atmosphere than man has since the dawn of the industrial revolution. You plug the volcanos I’ll believe in man made global warming.
I wish I were still in PuffSC’s laboratory. It was warm in there and she did give me something to eat now and then plus she kept water in my cage.
Let Jim Cantore show his face around 5 Points and see if I don’t puke all over him. If he kicks me in the nuts what’s the worst I can do, throw up?
There were few problems w/ the way SC handled the last storm. Only idiots who are getting their @$$#$ kicked politically, trying to manufacture weather as an issue, are claiming there was…Or maybe a few whiners, who whine about everything, are whining.
Just because the Dumb@$$#$ in this country fell for the “Bush caused Katrina” stupidity, don’t assume South Carolinians are as ignorant as Obama voters….
Nobody except your dumb ass self insinuated Bush “caused” Katrina, but his response to it was pretty horrific.
“You are doing a hell of a job, Brownie”.
Sochi Expected to Ready by 2018 Olympics
SOCHI (The Borowitz Report) — Construction in Sochi is “very much on track” to be finished in time for the 2018 Winter Olympics, Russia’s head of Olympic planning said today.
“I’ve been accused of being overly optimistic, but I really think we’re going to make that 2018 deadline,” the official, Dmitri Brilosky, said. “Fingers crossed.”
Mr. Brilosky pointed with pride at the progress his team had made in constructing bathrooms at the site. “We’ve finished installing the surveillance cameras,” he said. “Now we’re getting ready to put in the toilets.”
The Russian official was more guarded when asked by a foreign reporter if all the elevator shafts would have elevators in them by 2018. “I’ll have to check on that,” he said. “That might be cutting it close.”
The answer is simple, folks, these winter olympic games are being used as a cover to build Putin’s new GULAGS..!!
I’ve seen how a bunch of tow truck guys were price gouging on the local
news. They were arrested because Gov. Haley declared an emergency. Those
sleazy tow truck guys wouldn’t have been arrested if she didn’t do that.
Now, I’m not saying that she’s a great governor at all, but at least a little good has come from what she’s done. It doesn’t outweigh the harm she’s cause, though.
So after the snow and ice melts the potholes begin en mass. Glad to see the rest of state will finally get to have some of the fun the citizens in the upstate deal with daily. Dodging potholes!
