Hurricane Irene Turns Out To Be A Real Dud In New York City! More Media Hype & Sensationalism Bullshit!
It didn't have the power that everyone thought, and I fought with my family about it. Everyone was so worried about it, but I told them it wouldn't be no where as bad as they made it out to be. No one would listen. So now here's the weather forecast for NYC where I'm located, and where this dud is supposed to hit. See below:

Sunday...Tropical storm conditions expected with hurricane conditions possible. Isolated thunderstorms in the morning. Rain. Rain may be heavy at times. Highs in the mid 70s. Northeast winds 55 to 70 mph...becoming northwest 50 to 60 mph in the afternoon. Gusts up to 80 mph...decreasing to 75 mph in the afternoon. Chance of rain near 100 percent.

Don't get me wrong. I'm very happy it will be a dud. Now all you hurricane doomers can stop all the bullshit sensationalism along with the lamestream media!

 Quoting: Ap0c@Lyp5e


I think you're wrong. I'm sure there will be areas that will be impacted very heavily when compared to others, and I'm sure there will be isolated areas with no power for weeks.

That being said, supplies will continue to come into NYC within a day or two after the storm ends.

For anyone who did not prepare with all the lamestream media hype will get what they deserve.

It's a money maker. Just stand outside any home depot and watch how many people were buying up all the generators, and all at the last minute of course.

bump , and pump the dud!

Ya wanna know the worst part to this whole dud of a storm? It's not all the wind, rain, and so called storm surge that annoys me. It's that I won't be able to annoy all you doomers here on GLP about how wrong you were about this dud of a storm because the power will most likely be down along with my internet access. Shit man!

Yup, but it's sure been good for business! Think of all the panic buying at the supermarkets over the past few days. People are so easily manipulated by the media, this is a great example.

Yes, and many times it's very bad, but what really annoys me is the fact how the weather media and the lamestream medi always hype up this kind of thing. It's a scare tactic, and a real money maker for them because of increased advertising during any emergency.

Well of course it's not really a dud. I'm just calling it that becasue of all the bullshit hype that caused lots of fear.

I also realize that this forum is one big fear pusher, who supplies a quick fix to all of us doom seekers. We all enjoy doom until it hits us personally.

This storm however will not be the massive killer storm they said it will be, and all the mandatory evacuations are not needed. Just maybe in a few areas. All hype, and to protect their own asses. That's it.

That being said, this is still a pretty bad storm with lot's of rain and 80mph wind gusts. Just stay off the beach, and off the waterfront. Stay indoors, and you should be ok.

Also winds can be 30 mph down low but 90 mph up higher as the wind tunnels through the cities.Another thing thats bad is its expected to last for up to 20 hrs battering NY.So even it its not bad that long of a duration can be terrible.Transportation is now halted and the power will be cut before the storm gets there.It is already very humid there so its going to be miserable for people there.

Been going on for some time now. In the midwest, a 10" snow is the apocalypse as reported on the news.

When I was a kid, it was no big deal. you wait till the snow stops and dig out. Now people freak and worry.

fuck it. it sells papers and advertising, but there is a real cost

Yes, for all the people who live higher up in tall buildings, it will be very bad, but most people do not live that high up in new york city. I guess that's the price you pay for an apartment with a beautiful view!

The storm is over 600 miles across. That's why it will be here for some 20 to 24 hours. It's not gonna just sit here over us and dump rain, it's still moving, but will take a long time to pass because of it's sheer size.
