Part hurricane, part nor'easter and all trouble: That's what threatens 60 million Americans

Full story: The Washington Post

The storm that is threatening 60 million Americans in the eastern third of the nation in just a couple of days with persistent high winds, drenching rains, extreme tides, flooding and probably snow is much more than just an ordinary weather system.

Storms have come and gone for 1000's of years. This is no different.

Dems need some reason to push the Panic Button again so they hope for a Weather related Disaster. It's pathetic.

A Chicago-style-planned "October Surprise" will have to wait until November now, like Sat or Sun before the election. Sandy is gumming up the works. Carter/Mondale II in action.

Odummy plans to monitor the storm rather than campaigning. The CIA needs to put a drone over New York so he can watch citizens parish in the flooding…you know, the same way he watched four heroes die at Benghazi. This pathetic president might as well go to Las Vegas like he did on September 12th.

Lawmakers, politicians and accountants CAN control one's cost of living, they can calculate numbers to the very cent and they can make life miserable or happy for you...UNLIKE a storm of this magnitude..MANKIND does not have the slightest degree of knowledge HOW this natural act..WILL influence your heart, soul or pocketbook..ONLY you the individual WHO is caught up in the path of this storm will know..WHAT pains you will have to endure at present and if you will have the strength to challenge to continue on for rebuilding your lives...

They've happened before. 1991, 1993. It's just better technology and models can tell us all in advance what's going to happen...but we already know what's going to happen. There's going to be lots of rain, and wind gusts between 40 and 70 MPH. The power might go out, low lying areas might flood, coastal areas will get pounded by waves and wind, houses and beach property will be destroyed.
And they'll keep rebuilding them in the exact same spots.
Unlike previous generations, people go apeshit without electric, without their devices and being stuck home with their children because the schools are already closed, and those kids don't have TV's, computers or game systems to keep them occupied.
People will be locked out of their houses because they are so accustomed to pushing a button in their car to open the garage door (Sounds funny, but I'm not kidding) and they don't even carry house keys.
They'll bitch, scream and moan because a large tree limb took out the power on their street, which causes the electric company to shut off a "trunk" (a much larger area) so there are no live wires, but only the old timers think to go out and clear the debris so that when the electric company guys actually show up, there's no scheduling conflict with town and city workers, the debris is cleared and they can repair the line.
Then they'll sue the electric company because their power is out for days. The state will hand out money to replace food that might have gone bad in the refrigerator. Shelters will be inundated because in spite of five or six days warning, people won't put aside drinking water or make sure they've got gas for the grill so they can cook (and eat) the food thawing in the freezer.
We did this twice last year in Ct., one hurricane named Irene and one early snowstorm. I'm 46 years old and can recall many instances of tropical storms, nor'easters and at least two October snowstorms that knocked power out for days at a clip, and we all managed to survive without sueing anyone, without government assistance and without acting like the world had come to an end.
These younguns' are really helpless.
