We are well inland in northern Virginia but it sucks to be in New York City and many other East coast locales tonight. Good call to the leaders there taking the steps they did with closings and evacuations.  This is certainly a history book storm but again nothing we haven’t dealt with before in this area.

Tony Teolis/ October 18, 2012/ Preparedness/ 0 comments

                      Can you believe this song was number one in the USA in 1965. So prescient and the intro is by none other than Jerry Lewis. My effort today is a fuck you back to freaks who intend harm. So I’m getting through the day at work when someone says Molotov cocktails were
