I was hoping you were just being sarcastic in an attempt to be humorous, but now I'm not so sure.
One of you will end up here next!
Consider this, if the media doesn't get "dramatic" about the "potential" severity of a coming storm, how many people won't evacuate?
It's possible that "exaggeration" might have saved many lives.
Because honestly - for many, this was the biggest, most catastrophic and dangerous storm to have ever effected their lives.
It's also quite possible many who lived through Sarah might never see anything as powerful for the rest of their lives.
Of course for some - Sarah ended their life, so to try to "play down" the severity of this storm is really just tasteless and sad.
Madness in Manhattan
Still no power below 34th.
They shut off my building's (Midtown East) heat and hot water this morning to 'fix' area. We have power but hot water is run on steam. No prospect of return- they lied initially.
Gridlock traffic as idiots came to [not crucial] office work by car, as no Mass Transit.
Mayor just instituted HOV only into City next few days.
Cable TV/internet service, sketchy.
Stores running out of certain stuff.
Should be alleviated in a few days.
This of course is just my local view of one crowded part of the Region's problem, which includes many millions with no power, or for some, even residence.

I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
That was an absolutely obnoxious thing to say.
