Some branches fell in the rear yard. No big deal.

The power did go out for a few hours. Hooked up the genny to the fridge and freezer to keep shit cold and had to listen to WBAB. The horror.

I'm demanding reparations from LIPA.

I was expecting it to be pathetic. Very year people on LI freak out about the hurricane reaching LI and it never happens. We just got a small tropical storm. It was pretty annoying to pick up all the broken branches and raking leaves in august.

Well... he spent all that money, and he was all proud of it and prepared for the worst. Let the fella have his fun.
No.

He probaly wants to run all the gas out he put in b/c it may not be used again for a long time.
Maybe. However, I siphoned out any remaining gasoline in my genny and then it took two minutes to run dry.

He's sticking it to the maaaan! Free power, maaaaan! I ain't dependent on no power grid maaaaaaaan!
So...

Flooding up here like a mother fucker. I thought it was going to be all the typical media hype but I left the bar late and it was just raining hard, no problems. I get a text this morning from my friend asking me if I saw the town. Holy shit, never saw the water running over the bridges and the town so flooded all my life, all within a few hours after going home. The Hudson River was flooding all the low level areas. Lakes at levels I've never seen before. This may not seem like a lot to most but this is the worst in my 46 years here. Now we're not talking massive destruction but it was no small thing either. This had more to do with previous rainfall amounts than the actual storm

Damn right. You're a person, and they treated you like a common criminal.

I evacuated one time when we first moved to Charleston. Once. I came home to a stick in my yard and some leaves blown around.

From then on I recognized hurricanes for what they are: excuses to not go to work and have 48-72 hour parties.

It all depends on how someone is personally affected

Nextdoor neighbor on the right , I helped pump out the basement last night

Nextdoor neighbor on the left , called the Fire Dept. to pump her out today
Water in her basement was up to her waist


Probably lost the washer and dryer
Heater and water heater
