    Tropical Storm IRENE Update Statement

    Looks like NYC got hit by a whopper.

    This is from the report you posted.
    LANDFALL WAS 65 MPH...100 KM/H.
    That's a tropical storm, not a hurricane. I'm sure people are glad they were spared a potentially harsher outcome.

    It all seems a bit of an anti-climax.

    Scroll down to 01:08pm for comment on the coverage...

    " ...By Sunday morning NY1 TV station was reduced to warning us about the dangers of "slipping and falling." One anchor said: "It's going to be quite a challenge to work out what the heck is going on out there. Just because it's a puddle doesn't mean there isn't something else going on underneath it."

    And here's the winner of "most ridiculous piece to camera" a local Fox reporter delivering a live standup, covered in what turned out to be raw sewage. An appropriate metaphor, perhaps? ..."

    Hurricane Irene hits New York
    Don't work out, work in.

    The media went way overboard in its attempts to sensationalize this. One of the most manipulate things I noticed was that CNN chose, of all places, the Allegria hotel in Long Beach to film. That was an interesting site to pick because just two weekends ago, the hotel flooded after a mere rainstorm.

    I'm glad NY survived the 2' storm surge and 25 mph winds.

    Aces pic there.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
