Hanna on Hoboken

9/4/2008 Update:

Spoke with some people at the Italian Festival this morning as they were setting up.

In case of inclement weather, the RAIN DATE for both the fireworks AND the statue precession will be SUNDAY.

Also, take a look at the current hourly rain prediction – might be 30 straight hours of stormy weather! Any shoe stores in Hoboken having a boot sale?

9/4/2008:

Weather forecasters are predicting that what’s currently Tropical Storm Hanna will eventually trek up the eastern coast and affect our weekend plans.

Heavy rains and strong winds might throw a kink into the Italian Festival, especially the fireworks.

Hanna’s Impact

Hanna will take aim on the Interstate 95 corridor this weekend after slamming into the Carolina coastline Friday night as a Category 1 or 2 hurricane. Hanna will weaken once it moves inland and begins to get absorbed in the fast-moving flow of the jet stream. Tropical storm-force winds still threaten to cause damage as Hanna passes over the highly populated corridor of the Northeast Saturday into Sunday morning.

Soaking rain will also accompany Hanna through the Northeast. The arrival of the rain, however, will precede Hanna’s center and strong winds by 18 to 24 hours. The storm’s rain will be drawn northward, reaching the Delmarva Peninsula Friday afternoon and southern New England Saturday morning. Flash flooding could ensue from Hanna’s drenching rain, especially in poor drainage and low-lying areas.

Sorry you cant afford a BMW. As far as class is concerned, I guess u just showed us (with your name calling) that u have none. You have proven to me that under a rock is where u belong. Just because I’ve been voting in this city for a long time I’m poverty stricken? Maybe If you shout your loud mouth and tried to taste the meat on the street around here, you would see that u are just a grumpy bastard that shouldn’t be around other people. Please for the sake of… Read more »

My garage is at-grade, so I can’t do that.

[quote comment=”103905″]I think other enthnicities besides just the Italians should get a festival, here is my proposal: Hoboken should have an Octoberfest! Hoboken had a strong German presense and history before WWI and WWII and it would be great to bring that tradition back. Beer in one liter mugs, potato pancakes, bratwurst, schnitzel, yum yum! Maybe some dignitary like Corzine can appear in a Panzer Tank.[/quote] [quote comment=”103905″]I think other enthnicities besides just the Italians should get a festival, here is my proposal: Hoboken should have an Octoberfest!

Why not contact Gerri Fallo (she heads up all of the festivals in Hoboken, though I’m not sure of her title) and promote it as a revenue generating venue! Hoboken Historical museum might even want to participate if it’s not just marketed as a drinkfest like the St. Paddy’s day event in town. It would be great reason to don our lederhosen und trinken das bier! A friend of ours is a professional tuba player (he’s played in Broadway shows as well as a popular NY-based band that has traveled the world performing), so he might be able to get some music together, although it might be too late in the game for… Read more »

Hmmmm. Stevens is the highest elevation in Hoboken. Maybe I’ll park my car there this weekend.
