Sandy from the South Shore Long Island - Just got power & Internet back. Here's the REAL DEAL
We have been cut off, out of the loop for days not knowing anything but what the local media on the radio had reported. Even getting power back we still have no TV. I just got Internet.

The damage in my town and the towns surrounding me is moderate to severe. Flooding is horrible and no one had power. But we survived and lucky to have more than most elsewhere.

Water is unusable and sewage treatment plants are down left and right. THE WATER SMELLS OF CHLORINE - SUPER STRONG!

Gas/food/supplies:
it is near impossible to get. On a normal day I travel 70 miles a day into Nassau County and points in between. I quickly ran out of fuel and still find it impossible to get gas. I refuse to play into this panic and wait online 3-4-5-6++ hours just to get $40 of $4.89 gas.

Everyone wants a generator. All over the radio talk about them here or there. No gas but run out and buy that generator.

Food stores are hit or miss. I really feel this is the next big crisis. No deliveries are getting in. Twice now I have gone out to restock the fridge with new food and found foul milk being sold at King Kullen and Stop & Shop!

Controlled Chaos:
The politicians are making things worse. Media is hand in hand creating panic. All day long on local stations all they have is folks calling in reporting who has and who has no gas. I'm sure you hear the stories. People lines up hours waiting at a closed station for some delivery that may or may not arrive.

For example, Governor Cuomo in all his infinite wisdom announces 10 gallons of free fuel in mobile stations parked in western regions of the affected area. Lines form and quickly they tell everyone its for EMS vehicles only. Mayor Bloomberg holds a news conference an hour later telling people to go get the free gas if they need it.

Employment:
Most everyone I know couldn't get to work on Friday. No gas. My job laid everyone off on Friday afternoon for all of next week. Calling it a work furlow just so you can't claim unemployment! So now people need to worry how the hell they are supposed to feed their family losing close to 2 weeks pay.

Look it's bad. Worst I've ever seen. Worse than Gloria back in the 80's and much much worse than the 70's gas crisis. Back then it wasn't chaos. IT IS COMPLETE CHAOS.

I have seen fights in the streets. Accidents and cars broken down on the side of the road no gas. Flooding came far inland, trees and power lines down all over. LIPA can not tell us when the power will be restored fully and the whole situation is about to boil over into a full scale breakdown of society.

I can see how they control the chaos. Slowly ratcheting it up and now whipping it up into a full scale frenzy.

I know this is normal for a crisis such as this but hold on folks. I see it getting much worse yet! This was more than a "Hybrid Storm". It was the start of it all! I am sure of it.

Just needed to vent and let you guys know what I see.

I did prepare. More than most. I am an avid GLP'r. I have supplies. Honestly I didn't see the gas thing coming. I'm not going to power a generator just so my wife and kid can have a night light.

What I am seeing is it is bad ad getting worse for a bunch of people. It could have been avoided - but I really see TPTB seem to want this.

If you need work FEMA needs clean up crews for South Jersey. It's $1,000 for 7 days, hotel and food included. Call 904-797-5998.. Pass the word on if you know people who need work.

It is terrible! There are many factors in play here. People are homeless in their cars with children or in a home freezing..and going hungry. Bodies found on streets and that just adds to the misery..

Re: Sandy from the South Shore Long Island - Just got power & Internet back. Here's the REAL DEAL
south shore nassau county here, still no power

drove my car today for the first time since Monday, to get new tires... to prepare for a possible getaway in the next day or two. Avoided burning any gas but there are nuts out there going stir-crazy and driving around for no good reason.

Have been avoiding the insane gas lines. The people standing in line are friendly, but the lines with cars are super tense.

I'm a prepper, survivalist so I'm dealing with the no power situation better than most who are cut off without their creature comforts.

Have only been traveling around by bicycle so haven't seen too much. So can't say how it is in all areas. I do hear sirens here and there and the constant hum of generators. I haven't seen any violence or craziness but I'm in a fairly peaceful town.

I will pray for guidance in the next few days as to whether I should get away from here, possibly to NEVER RETURN. Seriously.

My thoughts are with you and your family. I'm from Louisiana and I know what you are going through.
Just be ready because next Tuesday night you guys in that same area that Sandy hit are going to get another big storm. The Weather Channel just said it was looking worse than what had been predicted. Strong winds, rains, beach erosion from the winds coming in from offshore, and flooding. Please let everyone know that the storm is coming. Some may not have radios or a way to find out. Be safe and may God be with you all.

I remember being slightly skeptical during the days leading up to Sandy and thinking it wouldn't create such misery. Now I'm hearing there's possibly another major storm headed to some of the affected areas over the next several days, and I'm now not sure what to think or assume.

Its called preparing, but of course (I live here) I have to hear all the tards complain and cry about how Obama has to save them.
