Friday the 13th.....ain't so bad....

...........................but the weekend looms ahead. Just like last years flooding in the Northeast.

The entire eastern half of the U.S. is bracing for a monster storm, the likes of which one forecaster says occur "once every 20 years."

Three storm systems -- one heading east from the Rockies, another in the Northeast and one in the Southwest -- are expected to come together to form a huge nor'easter that will bring gale-force winds, driving rain and heavy snow to much of the eastern half of the country.

Meteorologists say a storm system that is dumping snow over the central Plains and central Rockies will strengthen as it heads east. It is then expected to merge with storm systems in the Northeast and Southwest and develop into a raging storm that will barrel up the East Coast.

Forecaster Brian Korty says half of the country will feel the effects in the coming days. He calls it the kind of storm that happens "once every 20 years." predicts the storm will flood low-lying areas and cause coastal erosion. Inland areas could see a record-breaking snowstorm.

For those of you not from the NorthEast....Wikipedia has a description.

Here is an old post about my partying during Patriots day at Fenway....pretty good stuff :

Poker and Miscellaneous Stuff: (Long) Weekend Events and Past Events

Looks like I won't be able to do much of anything except....Play online poker.....unless the power goes out! That would really....really....really suck. I was going to go to Foxwoods.....had the overnight babysitter (mother-in-law) lined up and everything. No rooms are available.....WTF! I'm even surprised by this....but this is going to be a huge storm so that is probably a pipe dream anyway. I might be able to get to Rockingham Park on Saturday though.....there are some nice NL Holdem tournaments for Donkeys and pigeons alike. There are also weekly tourneys at Maxamillions pool hall in Tyngsboro on Thursday and some Saturdays. Seabrook Racing Park is also basically a full-fledged card room now....with some BIIIIIGGGGG tournaments. I may have to take a shot at this on the 21st of April.

I haven't had much luck in the BloggerTournamentChallenge.....but I did cash as a Rookie in the 'Dookie' 3rd to be exact. I'm usually tapped after the 'Mookie' but I started to drink beers during the 'Mookie' then was looking for another tourney after.......
