Just as utility companies in the Northeast fixed power lines and some residents regained heat and electricity, another powerful storm rocked the New York area on Wednesday, sparking fears that the region could again plunge into darkness and freezing temperatures. Yahoo! News invited residents to share their short anecdotes and photos from the nor'easter. Here are some excerpts.

Some of my neighbors rely on well water. But without power for the pumps, they have no water. For this reason, they left town during Hurricane Sandy. If power is out too long, they will have to leave Freehold again.
I feel for some of these folks but they voted for Benghazi Barry so maybe they should give him a call in Vegas.
Shep Smith, pick up the white courtesy phone.
FEMA closed up shop and left the area because they didn’t want to get caught in the storm.
Can you imagine what the press would have said if it happened while Bush was President?
Yawn, burp ... Obama will save them all.
Keep praying to him New Yorkers.
Wonder who is going to blame the storms on BUSH?
New York elected Cuomo and Bloomturd and Smucky Chucky Schumer and Jiggling Gillibrand, etc. Let’s see how well they do.
SOmebody please report back on what these clowns are accomplishing to help their constituents and whether the Obozo Circus/FEMA is doing anything right.
NY state OEM director fired for abuse of power
WHY ISN’T OBAMA DOING SOMETHING ABOUT THE DESTRUCTION FROM SANDY??? Oh wait, I forgot, he’s a Democrat. Yawn. Those people better learn to live with their circumstances, the cavalry was defeated on Tuesday.
Liberals freezing in the dark...
And hoping a bigger government comes to save them.
Ain’t it amazing...after Katrina, Bush was excoriated for his “response” to the storm. Never mind that most of the death and destruction was caused by Democratic politicians in Louisiana, who never bothered to strengthen the levees. And of course, the MSM virtually ignored the suffering in Mississippi, so Harley Barbour and Company issued an order that all looters would be shot on sight, and went about the business of cleaning up and rebuilding.
Rudy Guliani said it best; the response to Sandy has been as bad—or worse—than Katrina. Power crews turned away because they weren’t members of the IBEW. Nanny Bloomberg refusing National Guard MP units into affected areas because he wanted the NYPD to be the only security elements on the streets with guns. FEMA offices closed because of bad weather. And millions of people shivering in the dark.
Meanwhile, Obama basks in the glow of his re-election victory, and there’s no national criticism of him, Fat Boy Christie, or Bloomberg. And there won’t be; they had their little photo op on the beach, so all is well.
Americans get the government they deserve. Especially in places like NY, NJ and Connecticut.
“Liberals freezing in the dark...and hoping a bigger government comes to save them.”
I live in NJ (lost power for a few days from the storm, but like the French in New Orleans stayed away from the water), and initially I felt terrible for these people in NY and NJ impacted by this storm. After the election I honestly could care less about them. The last four years have made me absolutely indifferent to anyone outside of my “tribe”. Forward!
