New storm bears down on Sandy-battered NYC, NJ
AP via Yahoo News ^ | 11/7/12 | Colleen Long

Posted on 11/07/2012 12:22:18 PM PST by Kartographer

A nor'easter blustered into New York and Jersey on Wednesday, threatening to swamp homes all over again, plunge neighborhoods back into darkness and inflict more misery on tens of thousands of people still reeling from Superstorm Sandy.

Under ordinary circumstances, a storm of this sort wouldn't be a big deal, but large swaths of the landscape were still an open wound, with many of Sandy's victims still mucking out their homes and cars.

Thousands of people in low-lying neighborhoods staggered by the superstorm just over a week ago were warned to clear out, with authorities saying rain, wet snow and 60 mph gusts in the evening could set back the cleanup, topple trees wrenched loose by Sandy, and erase some of the hard-won progress made in restoring electricity to millions of customers.

"I am waiting for the locusts and pestilence next," New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said. "We may take a setback in the next 24 hours."

Please DONOT Hijack this thread to spew your wish of hell and damnation on the residents of NY and NJ. They are fellow Americans and as the bible says the rain falls on the just and the unjust. Such rants are not what FR is about and is liken to the acts of DUmmies.

Preppers’ PING!!

This is why those who complain the preppers over do it by having more than just a few days of preps are wrong! Often disasters are often followed by troubles a Hurricane can past and then a few days later a levee fails. You make it through a earthquake and then a few days later a major bridge collapse cutting off help and supplies.

When it’s 30 below zero here and we have two feet of snow, and my heating bill is $500, let’s just say tiny violins will be playing.

No problem. Chris Christie can just pick up the phone and call his good pal Barack Obama. I’m sure Obama will drop everything and be right there to help.

It is not my intention to bash the people who suffered a loss ,

Just a few thoughts

#1 Bury the dead.........pray for their salvation
#2 Treat the wounded.....pray for their recovery
#3 Do not rebuild anything that was destroyed by the storm/storms, roads built on sand, houses , etc , move out of harms way, why invite disaster and suffering every 100 years or so.

How about we balance the budget and agree to no more bailouts?

When Sandy hit, I said pretty much the same thing and was ripped a new one. I guess an election makes a difference. Let Hardy hug Laurel.

If allowing people to fully realize the consequences of there choices is damning them, who is responsible for their damnation?

Why am I somehow bad if I treat people who have chosen a path with the tolerance to let them walk it?

The overwhelming majority of NYers want to live in a Nannie state world where faith-based charity is frowned upon and the State redistributes to each based on their need.

There is one thing this storm taught me, even out here in the Desert Grasslands - keep at least some bug-out supplies in a waterproof container.

In regards to your comment, I would never wish harm on a fellow American. The several fellow Americans that live in NY an NJ have my prayers and sympathy; the rest, not so much.

They are fellow Americans

They include people who wished Republicans be washed out to sea by a Hurricane. They include people who have rejoiced repeatedly at the suffering in fly over country when nature struck. They include people who wish cancers and death on people they disagree with politically.

Excellent...just because a Communist was born here does NOT make him/her a 'fellow American'. Given the opportunity, many of my 'fellow Americans' in blue states would kill me...they have said as much.

In reality, this will cost us all. I can almost see the drooling over federal money happening right now.

That is why chrissy and sissy are letting it get this bad, so they can use our money to “help”.

Yep. They've blown it as far as I'm concerned. They can't put the mask back on; I've already seen what's behind it, and it is not a fellow American.

Completely in agreement.

However, I might find myself laughing if Chris Christie's weekly truckload delivery of Little Debbie Cakes got held up.

Do you know of some super secret safe area of the country that doesn't have some sort of natural disaster waiting to happen? Please, share it with us. There's always a drought, a snow storm, a flood, a tornado, an earthquake, a hurricane, mice shutting down the grid, la nina/el nino, heat wave, wildfire, sink holes, tsunami, etc.

I wish that was true, but we in Texas have had little rain since 0 bummer won in 2008. I hope his reelection does not mean four more years of drought. Lake Travis - our main water supply - is less than 50% capacity. It is 62 miles long with an average depth of over 100 feet.

There really are a lot of dickheads on this thread.

More than 3.5 million people in NY and NJ voted for Romney yesterday.

That's more than red states Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Alaska combined.

Brainless idiots.
