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!

My son John also lives there on father cap as your neighbor. He left my home where we were hunkered down around 2:30am, and went back there with his young 3 year old daughter, and pregnant wife. So stupid. Me and my wife are so pissed and worried about them.

It's 6:45am, and high tide will be about 8:30am. We are also worried about storm surge there as well.

Even the news people who have been placed out on the coastal areas throughout NYC are "ALL" saying they are just not seeing the wind with this storm that would make it a hurricane.

They did say however that there's certainly lots of rain with this system.

How many people die on a normal summer weekend on the East Coast?

I'd bet fewer people died this weekend than normal, because most of them were safe and cozy inside watching the hype-icane instead of driving drunk and riding their jetskis.

They're talking about the eye of the storm. That is almost here, but after that, we will get the back side of the storm.

I think the worst is over now though. The back side of this storm will blow the storm surge back out to sea, but they're not telling you that. They still want to hype it up.
