Roger reports from Albany, 150 miles inland, that the MegaGigaSuperStorm delivered less than a glancing blow:
[W]e got a little wind and a little rain, but nothing substantial. They closed our public schools in the city for two days due to an abundance of caution; the new superintendent is from New Jersey and I think she was taking her lead from the mayor, who had proclaimed a state of emergency for a day or more.
So yay for that. And a very loud boo for these people:
And because it wasn’t a big weather event HERE, I’ve heard people calling it a “dud”, that they were “cheated”, which frankly ENRAGED me. (I referred to such people as “idiots” on Facebook; maybe I should stay off Facebook. Someone else called them “callous douchebags”, which I suppose is worse.)
There are always reasons to stay off Facebook, but the need to denounce idiots and/or callous douchebags perhaps overrides those reasons.
In the meantime, I recommend that such individuals be parachuted into the very center of the next MegaGigaHyperSuperStorm, that they may reach the Nirvana they desire.
