Abbot and Costello meet Frankenstorm October 28, 2012 9:09 AM   Subscribe

Mandatory evacuations for the hurricane are beginning in NYC, so I figure a hurricane information/safety/calm-each-other-down thread (like last year) is warranted.

Yes, and that thread is here.

I know you have the best of intentions, griphus, but is there any reason to split the thread?

We had two last time for reasons that I can't recall at the moment.

Do the mods want to deal with metadiscussion in that thread, though? IIRC we were specifically asked not to do that last year. See also: earthquake the week before.

Yeah, I think we need to decide on one or the other. If the point is rapid-fire-emergency-liveblogging updates for MeFites in harm's way, a new thread here sort of makes sense but the old FPP is doing just fine now that the pissing contest over who's the most badass MeFite ever to survive a rainstorm is over.

Oh, wait, I see why we had two last time. Okay, never mind. Splitting the conversation is a stupid idea.

Yeah, let's hold off on splitting the conversation for now, and just keep the original thread full of good info rather than noise. Maybe once things actually go down, a check-in thread?
