Re: Sandy from the South Shore Long Island - Just got power & Internet back. Here's the REAL DEAL
wishing you all well. i too am dealing with having to go back and forth to my elderly and immobile dad/grandma 78/98 yrs old. it's getting cold. dh waited about 10 hrs total for gas in different gas stations just to get me gas to run around for my elderly family. had to do some insulating of the apartment. dad doesn't have a clue at the severity of this problem. no gas, i can't get them supplies unless i want to take a large shopping cart in the bus and ride for an hour and a half. sucks.

at this point the healthy and able bodied people should help those that cant, but no one helps my family over there. even the aide needs help.

take care op.

Re: Sandy from the South Shore Long Island - Just got power & Internet back. Here's the REAL DEAL
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.

How on earth could it have been prevented??? If you know how to prevent storms and floods you are working the wrong job.

I'm pretty sure OP was saying the DISASTER could have been prevented if more people were prepped.

I decided on a propane generator a while back because i didnt think gas would be availble during an extended power outage. Every store, gas station etc have the propane cages around here so we will see if that makes a difference if i ever have to face a situation like yours. Best of luck to you.

Re: Sandy from the South Shore Long Island - Just got power & Internet back. Here's the REAL DEAL
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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26321760


Assuming the worst, and prepare accordingly.

If you are in the affected area and need to leave this time, DO IT.

guess you should have just prepared even slightly.

It is really not bad. At all.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1491473


I'm getting sick of people telling people they should've prepped better. Seriously. This is worse than we thought and if your house is swept away and you packed your car with supplies and left, you will still need more supplies in a few days with a family of four!

People, think!
 Quoting: Starry eyes


Insurance will provide you temporary living if your house was completely destroyed. derp derp.

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.

Didn't want to spend money on insurance when you live on the fucking coast or an island? Well then stfu and enjoy the streets.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14969347


Newsflash fucktard...

There is even devastation from this storm away from the coast. Even Central PA had power outages and curfews. WIDESPREAD DAMAGE.

But a few 50 year old, poorly constructed homes got smacked down and now it is the end of the fucking world and people demand government to fix it all, feed them, house them, I have seen people demanding that government clothe their fucking children for school...

Its not like we were prepared for over a fucking week or anything. I was at Sams club the day before and not a fucker was in there buying anything, the place was loaded with supplies.

I would like to know how the sanitation is. I'm interested in the possibility of cholera breaking out in NY.

[link to www.cdc.gov]

[link to www.who.int]

"The main reservoirs choleraolerae are people and aquatic sources such as brackish water and estuaries, often associated with algal blooms. Recent studies indicate that global warming creates a favourable environment for the bacteria."
That would be a trip.

People have been bringing it in, but it hasn't really had the opportunity to spread before:


[link to www.cnn.com]

"On average, one case a year of cholera is reported in New York, she said, and it is "almost always in someone who has traveled abroad."

Thank you all for the kind words and wishes. I want to clarify my family and I are in a good place, warm and safe. I have plenty of bottled water, however we are bathing in the chlorine water.

My situation is mild compared to most just a tad bit south and west of me. Some more strange things I have observed:

National Guard troops at a gas station just north of me.

Military Humvee Vehicles escorting a 500 gallon fuel oil tanker.

Cash Only everywhere! Even if they have power the cashiers are being told to only accept cash. Others have said you must pay cash at gas stations. No Credit/ATM accepted.
