    Our corpulent governor doesn't want to hear excuses from the mayors about flooding due to paperwork. Get the work done and we'll deal with the paperwork later. Very circumspect advice.

    Input from a lean-believer: thank you for further proving why I left your miserable, arrogant party in the first place.

    At any rate, I shudder to consider what would come of it were this storm anything above Category 1. Best of luck to anyone in the northeast with the misfortune to be caught in this.

    What a bunch of New England pussies! 40 to 50 mph winds? Around here that just means small boats shouldn't go offshore.
    Just joking. New Englanders are delicate people and we all need to show compassion.

    As one who has seen the effects of Gulf Hurricanes some 200 miles away I STRONGLY urge anyone in the path of this monster to leave for safer ground. This may very well be the worst and most destructive hurricane in U.S. history.

    I have a couple of friends in the area. Let's just keep folks who are there in mind for right now!

    As one who sits just south (by scant miles) of the projected path of the eye of this storm, stop making this political right now. It's a potential killer storm. How's about waiting for after the storm rolls through, or peters out to be an ass about things?

    Seriously. Friends, family, neighbors and all are just waiting to see what happens.

    We don't care about global warming, or which county/state can do better at surviving such storms.

    Once Sandy has blown her load and the aftermath can be sorted out you can get all obnoxious.

    Right now lets just hope for minimal disruption of everyday life for the millions who are holding their breath.

    The worst weather tragedy in these parts, in my memory, was the blizzard of '97 and no one got hurt. We did get fat from sitting around the house eating until we all got ourselves dug out and dealing with cabin fever.

    too be fair you cant blame New England for being extra careful after what happened to Vermont last year

    No power and 12" of rain is nothing to sneeze at.

    Plus high tide, plus storm surge, plus heavy rain,plus no power.

    Look at Accuweather. The rain is just dumping.

    Good luck folks.
