I'm with you 100%. This is just awesome.


I hate this, I love in in April and October. It's July, I want heat, humidity and air conditioning. When I go outside to work out, I want to be sweating even before I get on my bike. Heat makes working out outside so much better


This is your opinion and I'm not telling you that you're wrong.

But you're wrong.

I can't even comprehend the statement in bold.

I assumed it was a sarcastic statement, but what do I know.

Johnstown flood is just so crazy. For it to happen three times to a single town. Just nuts. My grandfather has pictures from there when our town's Fire Department went up to help with the cleanup/rescue effort.

Johnstown has quite the story. Someone should seriously make a movie about the 1889 flood. It has all the ingredients for a blockbuster: evil rich people, small town, natural disasters, etc.

Correct. The South Fork Dam. Frick was a pretty disgusting human being.

No, just the original (and most infamous) in 1889. 1936 was a more traditional flood, a combination of spring melt and heavy rain. 1977 involved multiple dams breaking due to a a biblical amount of rain in a short period of time (over a foot in one day alone).

Only if the main plot revolves around Tesla testing a weather control device.

Back when I worked (rather fruitlessly) as a screenwriter, I wrote a screenplay about the 1889 Johnstown Flood. I had submitted it to the Disney Fellowship competition and one of the judges called me personally to tell me how much he loved it and asked if he could share it with his agent as he thought it had a lot of potential. Ultimately the agent passed saying the budget would be much too high (period drama and a disaster movie and involving tons of water) to get any studio consideration when written by an unknown writer. I sometimes wonder if it would far any better now that CGI has come so far.

YUS

He started working for Edison in 1884, so I was thinking maybe his first project was an assignment for the Illuminated One's to create a weapon that could be leveraged against all corners of the earth. Development of weather modification using electromagnetic and high energy output in the upper atmosphere, using a direct current transistor.

During the assignment, he learns that Edison and his wealthy banker friends intend to unleash said weapon on the small rural town of Johnstown, PA in an effort to wipe away ancient records of alien visitors who bred with the local native tribes and created a race of supergiant hybrid humans (and collect insurance money).

He befriends the daughter of a local farmer (Scarlett Johansson), and the two of them make plans to thwart Edison's evil plan. They locate the device hidden only a few miles from downtown Johnstown, where Edison is waiting for them. Edison reveals that he changed the design of the machine to an alternating current, of which Tesla is not familiar leaving him powerless to stop the flood that ensues. Tesla spends the rest of his life attempting to rid of the world of the costly alternating current, eventually making contact with aliens and lending a hand in developing the atomic bomb. He is shuttled off to the secret Nazi moon-base, where he is injected with life-prolonging drugs by the CIA, and becomes a pioneering engineer in the secret space program.

He was a cutthroat businessman who did what he needed to do and employed thousands of people. I really don't think the word disgusting is a fair assessment.

What weather app do you guys use? I was using Accuweather for a while but wanted to try something different so I downloaded the free NOAA app. I've had it for the last couple of weeks and I love it. It's super accurate and I love the hourly graph. There are tons of options and customization out the wazoo. 10/10 would recommend.

Wunderground. Same reason, the hourly graph is great. Nice to know what they think the % chance of rain will be at 5pm on Wednesday.

I miss the Accuweather add-on I had for Firefox. Incompatible with the newer version though.
