Thanksgiving Weather “worries” in Hoboken

Are you worried about Thanksgiving weather {hype} in Hoboken?

I’m sure most of you have at the very least stumbled upon a “big bad scary” Thanksgiving weather forecast. Wind. Rain. Stormy. Travel. What now? OMG! This has never happened before!

Yeah, we’re getting a typical rain storm (2-3 inches over a day and a half) – and some interior areas are getting a bit of snow. And yes, there will be more than your usual amount of traffic due to the holiday.

What does that mean? Plan ahead and use common sense. It’s by no means even close to the end of the world.

Instead the MSM treats it as some sort of “one of a kind” catastrophic disaster that will wreck lives and shatter holiday happiness. Oh my dear God – what are we going to do?

Well – weather like this happens every year to some degree or another. “Oh no, a branch broke! What horror!” What happened to everyone?

North Hudson Sewerage Authority clears out sewers

The NHSA was all over town today, doing routine maintenance on the sewer grates at various spots known for getting backed up and contributing to the puddles around town (that will be here forever – pumps or no pumps).

That’s good.

Anyway, if there was anything you’d probably want to pay attention to (in Hoboken at least), is the amount of rain taking place at or before high tides – which take place at around 3am tomorrow morning and 3pm tomorrow afternoon. See the Hudson River Tides here.

Have fun with the normal seasonal rain, folks!

Sorry H411, but I think you called this one wrong! What I saw looked worse than this pic. On the road where the “slide” hit, there was a wide mound of maybe a foot or more blocking the lane. You’d be an idiot to try to drive through it (unless you have a proper 4×4 with good clearance). Not that I’m not an idiot but I know I would not have tried. This pic is from much further down, so of course it’s less mud.
Btw, I read it might have been a burst water main that caused this, not the rain.[quote comment=”222068″]It was a couple inches of mud. A real mudslide takes out roads, trees, homes and anything that stands in the way. Any car could have driven over this slowly, and within a few minutes the dirt would have been dispersed.[/quote]

Sounds like a shallow landslide which has happened here before. The landslide is triggered by the rain and if it is heavy enough the slide continues to the coast.[quote comment=”222071″]Wouldn’t say I called it wrong then. Plus it was Jersey City, and not Hoboken. We didn’t suffer from anything out of the ordinary here.[/quote]

On my way to work this morning I saw that there was a mudslide on Paterson Plank blocking the incoming lane, just a little ways above the Cliffs. Lots of water was gushing down the hillside. Looked like a real mess in the making.
