Hurricane Sandy
 
"Frankenstorm" has hit hard this past Monday setting records. Still no power in my building, roads and buildings are closed while some traffic lights aren't working in my area. Have you been affected and if so, how are you coping?

:confused: I hope that's a mistype. You get the worst of the storm? I'm sorry, but that can't be true.

-40-some odd thousand gallons of water blocking the tunnel from Brooklyn
-3-4 weeks before people will get power
-Just under 3 feet of Snow in West Virginia
-Wind gusts in excessive of 100 MPH
-$60 Billion estimate of damage

I don't think anyone outside the East Coast can be mad about anything Sandy has caused them. I'm sure they'd all gladly change places with us.


Tech Explorer, hope your safe and hope everything gets back on track for you soon.

Sounds like a nerve has been touched . . . . .

The storm did reach millions of people and everyone was effected in some way, I think it's important to keep in perspective. Sure, we had really high winds and some snow, but as I stated, it's nothing compared to the east coast.

It's not a mistype sadly. It's true

The power was restored yesterday and some roads reopened and some traffic lights were
fixed. The only thing left for me from the storm are two alarms that are still going off (I put in a call to, HA HA, building management). Thanks for asking.

It was nothing compared to what we got here in Canada. I admit that but . Sometimes im thankful i dont live in the states lol

If it was so bad, what did you get there in Canada? You haven't lost power so it can't be that terrible.

That's it? Add no power no gas and food supplies running low then you have it bad. Other wise you are just trolling.

celegorm, I've been thinking the same thing since the original post. There's clearly a lack of understanding the impact that the storm had on the East Coast. I tried to provide that evidence in all my posts, but it was clearly not working so I choose to let it go.

Yeah but I figured I'd give it a try too. I hope he's trolling, otherwise I hope he never has to live without power for a couple days, or worse: a destroyed home or dead family.

There was no lack of understanding, any fool watching TV or reading newspapers know the east coast copped the brunt of the storm.....
No need to argue with halfwits.
