Well Pooh

Dammit, another Halloween Storm is getting ready to strike New England!  The one last year wasn't actually a hurricane, just a very early, very nasty and very heavy snowstorm that hit with all the leaves still on the trees, and knocked our power out for almost a week.  Some people didn't get their power back for TWO weeks.  But the Power Company says that Not This Time!  Even though they haven't ratified the Line Worker's contracts, and there are actually fewer linemen than there were last year.  Hello Ohio!  Did you guys ever get paid for the last time?

So...I'm feeling just a tad grumpy.  It was ok for a few days, but after three or four, it was getting seriously old.  And cold.  And dark.  And just a little smelly.  Gosh, we are such wusses.  So I've been making sure that I have plenty of candles and firewood, and putting the patio furniture away and NOT buying milk, because if the power goes, it will just go bad.  And looking for the Scrabble board and the playing cards. 

Interestingly, is there any natural storms of this kind in the Comic book world?  It always seems as though it is always the fault of Storm or the Weather Wizard or something.

Yeah it looks like it's going to be bad. For some reason the only storm I can think of from comics is one I read in a reprinted trade from X-Men. It involves Dr. Doom trapping Storm in a statue. Given her fear of trapped spaces it doesn't go well.

Yes, that was a fairly spectacular one. She also caused one doozy when they were fighting Alpha Flight for the very first time, in Calgary, right after they thought that Jean and Hank were dead in the Savage Land, that eventually led up to the Dark Phoenix saga. Storm was fighting Shaman, and between the two of them they practically wiped out North America! Good times!

On the other hand, with people like Storm and Thor and Superman running around, I'm not surprised that the DC & Marvel universes don't have really bad natural weather. Even if they do make it up with seasonal alien invasions and such.

The aliens want to invade BECAUSE of our amazing weather!

The only big storm I remember was the Cask of Ancient Winters, from Thor, which crossed into lots of other books at the time. Gool luck, Sally. As a Floridian, I know what you're going through.

Er, ah, GOOD luck. Got a bit of a Freudian slip there talking about the Halloween storm.
