Yes, that's true. Is it in the 40's in New York and New Jersey now?
It's a terrible thing, in addition to the millions who live in high rise buildings; you can't have a generator in an apartment. I hope people don't start freaking out
Yes and colder. They are freaking out. I was just watching a line of people at a gas station who some said they had been waiting an hour. The owner or employee, not sure, came out and said they were out. The looks on those peoples faces was heartbreaking.

Everyone from former Vice President Al Gore to Gov. Cuomo has chimed in to blame climate change for Sandy. But calling a single, rogue superstorm “the new norm” is misleading, if not downright naïve.
Extreme weather events have plagued mankind for all of recorded history. We have records of massive hurricanes striking what’s now New York as far back as the mid-13th century. The New England Hurricane of 1938 killed more than 700 people — 60 in New York alone. Hurricane Edna, in 1954, killed 29 and caused massive damage. Catastrophic hurricanes also hit in 1821 and 1894.
Yes, Sandy was the second tropical storm to impact New York in as many years, after Irene last August. But these storms don’t even start to compare with the frequency of tropical storms that threatened New York in the mid-1950s.
In 1955, two hurricanes — Connie and Diane — struck in the same month, causing significant flooding in the city. And the frequency of tropical storms to make landfall at or near NYC in the 2000s wasn’t as great as in the 1990s. New norm?
In New England, category five hurricanes — top of the line on the Saffir-Simpson scale — struck in 1938 (New England Hurricane) and 1960 (Donna). Category four storms struck in 1944 (Great Atlantic Hurricane), 1961 (Esther), 1985 (Gloria) and 1999 (Floyd). Category three storms struck in 1954 (Carol and Edna), 1955 (Diane), 1966 (Alma), 1976 (Belle), 1991 (Bob) and 1996 (Bertha).
On average, a major hurricane made landfall in New England every 3.5 years from 1938 to 1966. Since 1966, it’s been just every 9.2 years — with none since 1999. New norm?
That list spells out what Williams and Cantore conveniently ignored: Tropical storms were more frequent in the 1950s than at any previous point in the 20th century or at any point since. In fact, 10 major hurricanes struck the East Coast between North Carolina and New England from 1954 to 1960.
As hurricane expert Judith Curry of Georgia Tech points out on her Web site, and as meteorologist Joe Bastardi echoed in a Fox News interview, ocean temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere are now in the same cycle as in the 1950s.
The Atlantic is going through its warm cycle while the Pacific is going through its cold cycle — a perfectly normal pattern in the oceans’ ebb and flow between warm and cool anomalies. The El Nino Southern Oscillation, a measure of warming and cooling in the tropical Pacific known as El Nino and La Nina, also matches the pattern in the ’50s.
As evidenced by the 1950s, this pattern tends to steer large tropical storms toward the eastern seaboard.
In other words, it has everything to do with a natural cycle of Mother Nature and nothing to do with global warming.
Seven years ago, we were told that Katrina’s devastatation of New Orleans was just the beginning. But Mother Nature didn’t play along; the Atlantic Basin experienced unusually quiet hurricane seasons for the better part of a decade.

<quoted text> Oh quit with the bullshit. If man was screwing up the climate don't you think it would have been much worse back in 20's, 30's, and 40'. I mean after all there were no emission controls on anything. most houses burnt wood or coal not only to heat the house but cook and warm water. It is a proven fact that co2 in the atmosphere is going down. It is also a proven fact that the temperature rise is not happening. There is no man made climate change.

I guess your "proven facts" are more like proven lies.

I love how you change the subject though, I would avoid it too if I was supporting Obama this time around. But I'm proud to say I'm NOT!!!
Registered? You're a proven liar, as your mistake with mute for moot shows. If you WERE a democrat you'd know better about a lot of the errors you make here, since we have to work smart for a living instead of stealing it from other folks' companies and pension funds like R'Money or just get on SSI and walk around with misspelled signs that declare keep govermint outa my medicare!" as you baggers do.

Yes, that happened here too. Really, it's better to just stay put if possible. Fill up when you know a storm is coming and conserve.
