Here's an article that's in agreement with me.

Titled:

"The storm cannot master its own strength."

See if you agree like I did... even though I was saying it well before this article came out!

Not just a dud. A test to see how many people would willingly walk into FEMA camp of their own free will. Testing the sheep. They knew this hurricane was going to fizzle out before landfall.

you're right OP>

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

Yeah, Flooding in the midwest. Gulf oil disaster in the southeast. Southwest border troubles. Earthquake and hurricane in the northeast, and soon something bad in the northwest. What will that money maker be?

Yes, lots of money being made all around the whole country, and not just in the northeast like you think.

The only hysteria is from people who are psychologically unprepared for danger. Their fear is visible in conversation when they get angry/annoyed that they either can't look disaster in the face without panic, are woefully unprepared physically, supplies, money, resources, physical handicap etc. Least any of us with some life experience mention prepping or we have to endure some sanctimonius conjecture and poo-pooing from some fuck with naive tatooed across his/her lifestyle. Get the fuck over yourself man. Its the same thing with any of the symptoms of collapsing weastern society. They havent been in any shit and they can't immagine what would happen if Xevent happens. Therefore it cant happen. Or conversly Xevent, in their minds = "end of the world" or some religios bullshit. This is from a lack of understanding and connection with the complex systems that underpin their static reality. Normalacy bias.

Napolitano of DHS said it could be weeks or months before shit is restored to normal. Mabe. Who knows. Normally when hurricanes hit (ie shared common memory of hurricanes) they strike land and move inward and die. From a central planning perspective this is easy to deal with. Focus and marshall resources to affected area. This one is different. So far its weak but has the capibility in my personal opinion to do extensive damage to the power grid of 2 regions, halt trucking due to thousands of miles of obstructed roads, and displacement of millions, causing breakdown of the just-in-time delivery systems of several regions. Ignorance of how fragile and overcomplexified these systems are is the basis for this arrogance and normalacy bias.

That is the real danger here. What will the inhabitants of the largest population centers this side of the mississippi do when its two weeks without power/water. What will the military/banking/terror industrial complex do to respond? So take your low wind speed ratings and outmoded thinking and watch your battery tv.

Regardless of the dud status,once all that salt water gets in the subway its history.Also all the power is under ground and once salt water invades those the power grid system is fried.So its going to be a long time before things can be repaired and back to halfway normal.No power means no anything

OP, it seems the reports are consistent with weakening and failed leadership in overreacting to computer models. However, those reporting seem like they are still very concerned yet the reports they read on the air give us the sense that it will be a weakened event. Can a hurricane stall over D.C.? Dutchsinse reported earlier today that there were distinctive HAARP signatures on radar in the D.C. area. I believe this storm is under artificial control. Everyone should pay very close attention to what it does. Hurricanes are unpredictable, regardless of computer tracks.

I'm curious, was there this much discussion and preparation prior to Katrina? The news we got on this side side of the world is that no one lifted a finger before, during AND after katrina so it's strange to see all this attention for a less devastating event. Is it because Katrina hit an area of low interest to the American public?
