A couple of odd data points post-Sandy heading into a Nor'easter
I live in LI and just got power back today. Our area of the island had no storm surge, just trees down, but an enormous number of them. Was fortunately able to evac to Manhattan for last two days, so my family avoided the worst of living in a cold house without elec.

I noticed a couple of surprises on my return.

One, the gas lines have not gotten smaller. I was under the impression gas supplies were supposed to be rolling in beginning Friday, and with more stations getting power, we would see supplies bounce back quickly. Does not seem to be the case, but still might just be demand overhang from the last few days.

More worryingly, we went to the grocery store this afternoon and some essentials were unavailable. Eggs, bread, peanut butter, lettuce (?) all sold out. Even the day before Sandy landed, the shelves were not so bare. It makes no sense to me, unless people are really freaked about the Nor'easter, or, deliveries can't get through because of the gas supply problem.

In any case, it's weird, especially the grocery store.

Seems to me that things will continue to get worse, supply-wise, until the rate of resupply catches up with and surpasses the rate of demand.

People are still consuming a lot of gasoline and food every day, and the supply rate is probably not up to that level yet. So supply levels continue to be drawn down, though not as fast as initially.

This storm was freaky. Drove down some roads and it seemed almost every tree was knocked down METHODICALLY , saboteurs coldn't have done better!

Funny thing was during the height of the "hurricane" the winds were not that bad seen much worse. I was even out in the middle of the storm picking up firewood I was so bored wo electricity I decided to start my fireplace for shits and giggles.

It was hardly nothing yet a bunch of people still don't have power gas and interwebz even a week later? What gives?

Saboteurs - using an iPhi or comparable, count on you.

Nature is terrorized by that technology and has lost resistance. People just is blind and again blind to recognize that.
