hurricane serious business

i think the deathcount is 16 now in the eastern states. Numerous homes on fire from the electric lines breaking.



Lake michigan is suppose to have 20ft high waves. 30-40mph gusts of winds today too. don't drive next to a semi.

That crane that started to fall of the building was nuts.

Wonder if they asked Chris Cristie to stand in front of Jersey and act as a damn to protect the people.

Just think there is still portions of New York with wooden gas pipelines. Can't wait for all the infrastructure to shit the bed.

Gov. ChristieKreme was out this morning disussing the devastation that affected him was the worst he's ever seen. The Burger King, McDonald's, and Arby's are all gone. He looked very depressed.

The officials are doing a great job of keeping peace. Last night they were transporting newborn babies from hospitals w/o power to hospitals with power. I think the death count is somewhere around 36 currently. I hope these people can stay safe. This is awful sad news. My wife's cousins evacuated NJ. It's pretty bad when you have to evacuate your own house.

Very sad, and good wishes to your family members. Out of curiosity, how far is their home from a body of water?

They lived in Wallington NJ. I didn't hear any bad news so far. I'm trying to find out if they are okay. They should be seeing they left. I don't personally know them either but still it's the wife's side still matters to me. I'd put a dollar to a donut saying they are fine.

Liberals are praising obama eventhough this hurricane diaster isn't over.


People on the streets are crying for food. People are not getting the help they need. No food or water is being supplied. People ae going downtown to dumbster dive.


NewYork is going to have a marathon and they are getting dozens of generators and food for the runners. Hotels are kicking people out who are homeless to make room for the runners.

I'm still betting Gov. Cristie's first priority will be to rebuild all the McDonald's, Burger Kings, and Arby's that got washed away.

Does seem kinda dumb to try to do the marathon.

Or ... make it a biathalon instead: Running & Swimming.
