It is really not bad. At all.

Fill up. Drive West.

I agree. Move while you can, file a claim with your Insurance for contents and for structure with flood and Home Owners insurance and then file with FEMA. The checks will be forwarded to you where ever you go.

Re: Sandy from the South Shore Long Island - Just got power & Internet back. Here's the REAL DEAL
I have prayed and will continue to pray for all of you. I am so sorry for what you are going through. Please people be kind one to another and help where you can. FOr the ones that need everything, I wish I could make the trip and bring it to you. Yes, we all prep, but we do not know what kind of a situation we may face. There but for the grace of GOD could all of us go.
If you break my wings, I will just find a cloud and learn to fly again. The Lord will catch you when you fall or teach you to fly! May the footprints I leave lead you to BELIEVE.

No preperation can stop your home from sliding into the ocean or bays or stop 4 feet of flooding waters which is what happened across NY and NJ.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 16024840


First of all, its called insurance.

Second, you can prevent it. Build a concrete home.

You are a tard.

Are you 5 years old with name calling? Guess so. Get your facts straight. If you think insurance covers water damage from a hurricane, I have a bridge I can sell you. And tell the hundereds of people who lost their homes to the sea to go back 50 years and rebuild with concrete. Yea, I am dealing with a 5 year old. I'll go warm your baba now.

Is propane (the portable tanks) available in this storm? Just asking.

All the people with propane generators around here have the big ones that hook to their large propane tanks which they also use for cooking fuel, that are routinely refilled by the propane company.

Hey there Starry Eyes.. I've been wondering the same thing. Perhaps Citizen's living west of the disaster area, with extra room in their homes, could offer refuge to the 'Women and Children' for a period of time. Similar to what was done in England during WWII.

The 'Red Cross' or 'Faith Based Organizations' could coordinate a temporary relocation program.

This would lessen the demand on resources needed in the area and also free up persons to direct their efforts to recovery.

Although it would be somewhat traumatic for families at least they would know their loved ones were safe and comfortable.

OP, I am glad that you are safe. Your message about being prepared, but not seeing the gas shortage coming is clear.
I thank you for posting this thread, which is invaluable to the rest of us Preppers. I have a few straight up questions. Please do not take offense.
1) Are Silver coins of any value to you in this situation?
2) Are your neighbors prepared in anyway at all?
3) Do you know that another storm is coming on Wednesday?
4) Is there anything that I or we GLP can do to help you?
5) Do you have any idea as to why the people in NYC were so unprepared?
Thank you in advance for your response.
I am now praying for you and your family too.
 Quoting: Anti-Doom


An answer I gave earlier in my thread.

Pertains to Question number 5.

There is extreme Normalcy Bias going on there right now but it is starting to unravel quickly. NYC is just not used to things like this and always expect things to be done yesterday. Its just the nature of the area.

No matter how much one preps for disaster..if houses are flooded, prepping doesn't matter..

Good luck to you.
 Quoting: Starry eyes


THANK YOU - THIS ^^^

So many people on this board have been laughing at the people put out by Sandy, but they miss the point that if a flood washes your shit away it doesn't matter whether you prepped or not. People with generators ran out of gas and their solar panels blew off the roof. Yes how dare these people not all live in steel fortresses built into the side of a mountain with private nuclear reactors.

The extent to which people are trashing those displaced and without power makes me sick. We've fallen so far to be at the point people have a just let them rot attitude. Jesus.

You can build brick veneer, that's the normal brick house with framing inside. It's strong enough to withstand any wind storm I've ever heard of.

But if you mean brick or stone or concrete with no framing inside, so mold won't grow if it gets wet inside, I don't know if that's legal. It would be a bear to insulate though, the space between the siding and gypsum board (inner walls) is the insulation in a normal house.

Re: 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.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13398705


That is quite possibly the dumbest thing ever said on GLP.
Prepping is a no brainer. Especially if you have advance notice that a storm is coming. I've been through my share of storms living in Florida. Ivan was a cat 3/cat 4 with over a 16 foot surge so no one say I haven't dealt with anything like Sandy.
I warned friends and family living in Jersey and in New York. Most blew me off or said they were prepping but their idea of prepping is so much different than those that have gone through bad storms before. I stressed they gas up and buy extra gas containers. Most didn't listen. I told them we're told to have at least 3 days of preps but I always keep at least 2 weeks worth in trunks ready to go with me if I'm forced out of my home for any reason. Again, they thought it was overkill.

Thankfully They all survived the storm and are doing OK. They're constantly complaining about the gas and water and have all promised me they'll take any future storms much more seriously. Live and learn. Everyone thinks shit won't happen to them.

too bad for you and others on your area who haven't prepared. We have 200 gallons of diesel, 100 gallons gasoline, 200 gallons propane, whole house generator and 600 gallons potable water in above ground storage as well as 1 yr. food supply. I also have 1kw solar and battery bank. Sucks to be all those fucksticks who think preppers are whacko.

Doom on. When doom hits I'll be running my generator and solar making ice cold cocktails and eating well while the zombies roam around. I'll pick them off with my .308 if they get too close.
