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.

-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.

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.
