I like, how the county I live in, is getting in the 2.2 range and the county right above me, is receiving 6.5 to 7.

Got Haggis?

How can you guys tell where anything is on those meteorological maps? I look at them and can never tell where the hell DC or Northern Virginia are.

Really? DC seems like the easiest one to find due to the diamond shape and the VA part missing


Arlington is the hardest to see cause it us the nation's smallest
is that true?...but easy to find due to it being right underneath dc

Did we just have an earthquake? For a minute I was afraid it was the North Koreans.

Yep.  I felt it and checked USGS.gov.  It was a 4.4 in Dover, about 90 miles away.

[UPDATE] They're calling it a 5.1 now.

At the risk of sounding like a dick, it should be noted that penis-shaped weather maps are actually quite common.


One woman said, “I’m sick and tired of being promised 6-7 inches and only getting 4!!!” to which another commenter replied, “Well it’s probably because your messing with the wrong weather guy.”

Another guy hoped the storm would prematurely finish and leave people “very unimpressed with the overall experience.”

Other hilarious reactions include:

    “If this storm lasts longer than 4 hours, seek immediate medical attention.”

    “Tennessee says, ‘Not right now Texas I’m tired.’”

    “Don’t expect this storm to pull out quickly...”

    “I guess you could say Mother Nature really has a hard on for the gulf coast lately.”

    “Storms definitely going to penetrate deep down south.”

    “There should always be a warning when it’s more than 6 inches.”

The most philosophical response to the penis-shaped weather map may be one from a woman who wondered how future generations might view it.

“In a few thousand years, some alien historian is going to stumble across this post and read the comments and finally understand, after years of study, exactly how we humans, a clever and able species, managed to let ourselves get caught in another ice age, for we were too busy making dick jokes to flee, and I’m ok with that.”
