Rains of frogs. Meanwhile, I just want to know if something is going after neighborhoods we used to live in.

If something really bad happens to San Francisco, Seattle, or Toronto in the next few days, I’m going to be unsure if we should flee Brooklyn, or stay put. [04:41 PM]

No, stay put. It happens to neighborhoods that are not worthy in the sight of the Unhyphenated. If you leave Brooklyn, it will be punished.

And you wouldn't want that.

There is a certain compelling logic in what Xopher says.

Yeah... what they said...

OTOH, you COULD move to Hoboken (if you promise NEVER to move out). Those of us who live there would find that very pleasant indeed. Though perhaps not enough to assuage our guilt over visiting disaster upon Brooklyn.

Does the 5+ inches of rain Seattle got on Monday count as, "within the next few days"?

Given the reputation for Seattle being rainy this might not seem like much, but this was not the steady-state drizzle which usually affects the area.

I am glad I was in L.A. for that weekend.

The 5.02 inches of rain in Seattle set an all time record for rain here in a 24 hour period, so it definitely counts.
