I’m on Long Island. Gas lines over a 100 cars long at virtually every station that’s still open. Fights have happened all over the place. People have pulled guns on each other in a couple of cases (Riverhead, for example).
The lack of power and heat is bad but most people I know here know SOMEONE they can go to for a shower, sit in warmth.
The lack of gas changes that equation in a bad way.
Just received a call from the NRC looking for last minute contributions. I told the caller that here in Albany, there are no Romney/Ryan signs anywhere! You would not know there was a presidential race. Now, given the delays downstate in resolving the damage, the frustration of those living through this misery, do you think any of those people would switch their vote to Romney? Just curious to get another New Yorker's opinion.
