Hoboken Photo of the Day – Pier A Park Tornado (Fake)

Filed under: Hoboken,Photo Of The Day,pier A,Pier A Park — Tags: , , , , — TheBoken @ 2:30 PM

Note: This Hoboken tornado photo is not real but filtered

Is it just me or have we had more than our recent share of tornado watches and warnings in the last month from the National Weather Service? Now Hoboken is not known as a tornado hot spot like Kansas or Oklahoma but we recently had a water spout in Brooklyn just two weeks ago so anything is possible. Most likely any tornado that could touch down in Hoboken would be either a Category 0 or 1 but it could still inflict damage so these warnings and watches should be taken seriously.

It is my hope that if Hoboken ever had a tornado it would either be in the Hudson or out in the open like Pier A Park since it would not damage any homes. As editor of  Theboken.com I admit I am a bit of a weather nerd and get an adrenaline rush from severe weather so here is a filtered photo of what a tornado might look like at Pier Park in Hoboken should one ever touch down.  Note this photo is created using filters from iPhone app Filtermania2.

Doctored Photo Tip: See if you notice anything out of place in this photo and feel free to share in the comments section  below….

Pier A Red Bulls Viewing Party Texas Arizona

 

Hey soccer fans, consider joining the folks at Texas Arizona  at Pier A in Hoboken for an outdoor viewing party on Wednesday August 29 when NY Red Bulls take on DC United in an Eastern Conference showdown. The game starts at 8pm but the festivities start at 7:30pm where you can challenge your friends to Race The Red Bulls and other activities from the Interactive Zone. TheBoken.com is not sure what an interactive zone is but it sounds like fun for us gadgetry types. Besides the views will be great. Nothing like a soccer match with NYC in the background.

RSVP here on their Facebook event link:  on.fb.me/Q7QySC

Mumford and Sons Weather Forecast in Hoboken – Possible T-Storms Until 7PM but Clear After That

With the Mumford and Sons Concert at Pier A Park scheduled for tonight Hoboken in focus: here is an update on the weather that has some concerned that it could rain out the show that has 15,000 concerts goers expected to attend. The latest forecast according www.weather.com has possible isolated T-storms and t-storms starting at 5pm but ending at 7pm. This could effect early opening acts but if the forecast holds up will still allow for three hours or so of performance time even in the worst case scenario. The radar shows a system that isn’t too large so once it passes things should be ok. Keep in mind that this information is from the weather experts  and not TheBoken.com.

Suggestion: Since people are not allowed to bring umbrellas perhaps a poncho should be worn just in case.
