    I don't argue there is some severe damage. I argue that the media is exaggerating. Once in a 100 years superstorm, once in a lifetime megastorm, unseen hurricane... Yeah, sure.

    See - this is where you two can easily be awarded gold stars for asinine comments and foolishness.

    Have there been worse natural disasters in the world? Yes. Without question.

    Was Sandy a record setting monster of a storm? Yes. There is no doubt it was.

    Based on pressure, Sandy is likely to be the strongest storm ever to make landfall north of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, for as long as records have been kept.
    When hurricane hunter aircraft measured its central pressure at 940 millibars -- 27.76 inches -- Monday afternoon, it was the lowest barometric reading ever recorded for an Atlantic storm to make landfall north of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. The previous record holder was the 1938 "Long Island Express" Hurricane, which dropped as low as 946 millibars.
    Sandy's strength and angle of approach combined to produce a record storm surge of water into New York City. The surge level at Battery Park topped 13.88 feet at 9:24 p.m. Monday, surpassing the 10.02 feet record water level set by Hurricane Donna in 1960.

    You two are completely leaving out context and intelligence.

    Where, how, and when this storm hit is unprecedented.

    If you got off easy, like I did, that's fantastically lucky and fortunate for you.

    The FACTS are simple though.

    It was a huge storm.
    A devastating storm.
    A killer storm.
    A storm for the record books.

    For anyone to make light of it at this time is hugely disrespectful and in such poor taste it's not even close to funny.

    You should both just stop. Please. Out of respect for those who have lost much more than any of us sitting here posting words on some silly internet forum.

    You may have lost nothing. Others have lost everything.

    Have a heart and some compassion.

    So, at least 55 people losing their lives and some people losing everything they own is a "sort of a joke" to you?

    Did you know that the boardwalk in Seaside Heights in New Jersey is GONE? What a shame.

    PHOTOS: Hurricane Sandy Wipes Out Seaside Heights
    New Jersey, amusement rides that once crowned a pier in Seaside Heights were dumped into the ocean, some homes were smashed, and others were partially buried in sand.
    The well known town and historic boardwalk of Seaside Heights, New Jersey, loved by generations of families as a popular summer vacation spot, has been washed away by Hurricane Sandy.
    Besides ravaging beaches, the storm swept homes off their foundations in some coastal communities, wrecked some boardwalks and knocked amusement park rides from piers in Seaside Heights.
    Photos and aerial views show rides from Seaside Heights well known boardwalk and amusement park on the Jersey Shore.
    The famous roller coaster on the fun time pier has plunged into the sea.
    A merry go round that has gone round for 99 years is destroyed. The bumper cars and the ferris wheel have crashed together, and the boardwalk is gone.

    No hurricane is a joke, and the intensity of the storm is from the perspective of those who rode it out.
    If you were in it, it was bad!
    This was a bad storm, mostly because it hit a high population area that does not get many hurricanes,
    so the area had a lot of stuff built in storm surge zones.
    The news media has played it up, because they were in it, (so it was a real bad storm to them.).

    That's the number one reason. The folks in the Northeast have never had to deal with this.

    Re: 'Frankenstorm' Headed to Region

    The reason I'm making my assinine posts is because I'm a little ticked. This storm got way hyped, more so than even Hugo, is continuing to get mega media coverage, and, oh my, 60 people dead. Where was all of this when Charley hit? I rode out this storm thinking, Jesus, I've gone snorkeling in worse weather, yet it's a state of emergency, national guard, and the president rolls in. Why? Because new englanders aren't used to it, and since floridians are, they just need to accept that Charley apparently wasn't that big a deal? Hundreds dead, millions left homeless, property damage so extensive that the insurance companies couldn't even cover it. I do not make light of the storm, either of them...just the outpouring of attention ONE is recieving. I worked for over a month up and down FL repairing roofs with tarps, building tent camps for the refugees, clearing rubble, etc. Know much of that got covered by news? About two days, and then onto the next thing. But since this puff of a blow by comparison hits the north east, woa, stop the presses, we gotta ram THIS news down the throat of the country for going on three weeks now. Toughen up, north east.
