The one bright light I was looking for today

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • Was a Seahawk win. Reason I am saying this is my area in NY is about to get annihilated by the hurricane. News reports here are calling it "the perfect storm". Worst storm ever to hit NY. Areas all around me, I live on Long Island about 1/4 mile from LI Sound, are being evacuated. The Hawks were one only hope to salvage something good this Sunday. Being a Hawks fan since 83 I'm kinda used to it not going my way. Well gotta go and batten down the hatches.

  • Stay safe out there guys. A Seahawk loss is nothing compared to losing some Seahawk fans out there.

    Too true, best of luck to you and yours, maybe when the hurricane dies down you can stick another post up here letting us know your ok?

    Stay safe.

  • Don't worry about the loss. Just make sure you are ok. Plenty of Hawk victories to come in the future.

  • Hurricane is bearing down on us. Praying we don't get any flooding or major damage....and hope power stays on.

    Could have been in a good mood today if the defense could stop a 3rd and long.

  • Trust me, I know how you feel dude...

    That was how I felt watching the game yesterday. To make matters worse, my favorite soccer team Athletic Bilbao lost as well and are mired in a relegation fight. Just got some brews, blunts, Arizona, water, and cold cuts (the essentials) and me and the girlfriend are ready to be Riders on the Storm.

    Stay safe to all my fellow 12's on the east coast. We're gonna be alright.

    But damn! Why couldn't the 'Hawks pull it out yesterday? Tough one... Gus Bradley's 3rd down defensive calls and empty shotguns on 3rd down will be in my head all day haha

  • So far only real damage for me is a tree crashing through my pool cover. I have to say that I have never felt wind like this (sustained winds of 70mph and gusts up to 100+). Many of my co-workers have been evacuated and homes are now the worlds largest fish bowls. Huge damage everywhere and the storm has not officially reached us. I am not sure how but the power has remained on somewhat. Going to be a rough night but as a NY'er all we say to this stuff like this is fugetaboutit.

  • Hang in there bro. I went through some doozies in Seattle when I lived there. The "innagural day" storm in 1992 (?) The Thanksgiving Day storm in about '87, and the worst one about 6 years ago. Man, mother nature is fierce.

  • The Pacific Northwest has it good when it comes to violent weather. Apart from the occasional squall and the very rare tornado, there's virtually nothing to worry about.

    To those of you in the storm's path, please err on the side of caution.

  • Finally over!!!! Again I live in long island and am 1/4 mile from the water. It was a sick storm. Just got my power back tonight from Monday. Still have tons of trees down and the lines to get gas stretch 1/2 mile. Slept with no heat last night and saw my breath in front of me while still in bed. You don't know what you have until you don't have it (maybe like the bowl for us Hawks fans). Well time to defrost, get the power lines off my driveway and fix my pool. Thanks for everyone's support.

    Go Hawks!!!!!

  • Glad you made it thru it ok. When I lived in Seattle in 2006 or 07 we had basically a hurricane. The power was out for over 7 days at our place and after the storm it got down in the teens at night.

    I kinda know what you are going thru.

    Hang in there bro !!!!
