Don't know yet. From what we're hearing Philly may get a direct, or near-direct hit.

By the time it comes ashore, it should be sub-tropical. But they're warning of very heavy rainfall, as it's moving slowly.
Localized rainfall totals could approach a foot. So, flooding is going to be the biggest concern. And power outages.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.
Who you are, and what you do,
don't make no difference to me.

I reckon so. Time to tape the windows and hope the power doesn't go out. She's gonna' be a big one! Stocking up on beer, D cells, fill all available containers with water, have lots of ice in the freezer in case the power goes out, etc.

This is part of the price we pay on the east coast for getting all those Furthur shows. Not that there's any correlation there, but you in the midwest/mountains/west coast will be safer for the next week.

the midwest has gotten no shows in the last few years.
ok, like shitcago, and indy.
i heard that indy show rocked though.
still, when i lived in KY, i saw ratdog(or phil or mickey or billy) anytime they came through, and as i recall, i used to get like an average of 4 shows a year.
the pagent in st. louis, the murat in indy, the palace in luval, new daisy and ryman in TN, and thats just a 4 hour drive from my hometown
they go where the tickets sell.
i guese the kids nowadays like that techno shit more.

remember when"raves" where the fashin in the mid 90s, like jungle and house, etc. now its all dubstep. and it mostly sucks.
all those people are gonna feel stupid for dressing that way, when they grown up.
its like kiddie porn at those shows. fukin highskewl girls in bras and panties.
im as hetro as the next guy, but shit.

I think you'll find the midwest has hosted shows in the last few years. Not enough, but more than the 'none' you sited.
Anyway, I think this thread is about a big storm...............not stormy sentiments

"4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)"

Sandy the fireworks are hailin' over Little Eden tonight
Forcin' a light into all those stoned-out faces left
stranded on this forth of July
Down in town the circuit's full with switchblade lovers
so fast so shiny so sharp
As the wizards play down on Pinball Way on the boardwalk way past dark
And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open
like Latin lovers along the shoreChasin' all them silly girls
Sandy the aurora is risin' beh ind us
The pier lights our carnival life forever
Love me tonight for I may never see you againHey Sandy girl
Now the greasers they tramp the streets or get busted for
trying to sleep on the beach all night
Them boys in their spiked high heels ah Sandy their skins are so white
And me I just got tired of hangin' in them dusty arcades
bangin' them pleasure machines
Chasin' the factory girls underneath the boardwalk where
they promise to unsnap their jeans
And you know that tilt-a-whirl down on the south beach drag
I got on it last night and my shirt got caught
And that Joey kept me spinnin' I didn't think I'd ever get off
Oh Sandy the aurora is risin' behind us
The pier lights our carnival life on the water
Runnin' down the beach at night with my boss's daughter
Well he ain't my boss no more Sandy
Sandy the angels have lost their desire for us
I spoke to 'em just last night and they said they won't
set themselves on fire for us anymore
Every summer when the weather gets hot they ride that road
down from heaven on their Harleys they come and they go
And you can see 'em dressed like stars in all the cheap
little seashore bars parked making love with their
babies out on the Kokomo
Well the cops finally busted Madame Marie for tellin'
fortunes better than they doThis boardwalk life for me is through
You kmow you ought to quit this scene tooSandy the aurora's rising behind us
The pier lights out carnival life forever
Oh love me tonight and I promise I'll love you forever
Strangers stopping strangers just to shake their hand

Just went to the grocery store to pick up a few things here in NYC. Wished I had taken a picture, the store had lines like I've never seen, worse than what preceded Irene last year.
Evacuations are underway, and the MTA shuts down tonight, subways at 7pm and buses at 9pm. I hope no one is stuck in the city without a way to get home.
People on the east coast will get through this, I have faith. What concerns me are animals stuck out in this storm.

The winds have been picking up. Might as well get this over with, it's inevitable.

Good luck everyone! Be safe
I went walkin' out last summer
Tryin' to find a breath of air
I went walkin' on the mountain
A friend had told me I'd find you there
