Well, they're evacuating hospitals here on Long Island that are near the ocean... so I'm guessing that they're not treating this like a joke :) Ugh, I hate losing power.... I need a battery/generator for my PS3 :)

Work closed for the 3rd day in a row. It's nice to have a long weekend but throwing out all the food in the fridge and walking into walls removes the excitement.

Wondering how long are you east coast gamers have had to wait for gas. Yesterday was a half hour for one of the cars and today was almost 2 hours waiting. I'm even seeing shit head people trying to sell gas on Craigslist. It's getting out of hand.

I count myself lucky, I live in the center of Connecticut. And for the most part the storm moved around us.

My heart goes out to those who live in the path of the storm.

The gas situation is easing up in Westchester. I passed a few on my way to work that didn't even have a line. (and yes they had gas/power)

They are selling gas on Craigslist? I see a few problems with this

1. This isn't a post apocalyptic world yet (I see that in a lot of those kinds of games and movies :p)
2. If the issue is no power or internet... how are people seeing gas for sale.
3. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? A great amount of people have just lost a lot, some have lost everything. And your going to kick em while they are down? Graghrgagen... people make me ill sometimes.

Still long lines here, unless you are up at 5am. They are doing the odd/even license plate thing, enforced by cops at the stations too. Today is both my cars turn, but i'm unsure if i'll have the 3 hrs to burn in the middle of a workday. We have enough gas to last us to perhaps wednesday, but then with the noreaster coming it might be chaos.

People wait around for events like this so they can scam people. On Staten Island people claiming to be "Search and Rescue" were looting people's homes. It happens.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 5, 2012 5:19:13 AM PST
Makes me want to kick people into traffic.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 5, 2012 5:21:35 AM PST
Likewise.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 5, 2012 5:23:06 AM PST
On NY1, SI residents were saying that people were dressing up in Con Ed uniforms and then robbing them once inside. And this was only after 2-3 days without power. Animals, brah.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 5, 2012 5:26:09 AM PST
Yup. There should be a separate law for people doing this. Like lining them up and shooting them.

The sheer devastation of hurricane Sandy also has the trickle down effect on the rest of the country as well....Here in Salem some businesses can't keep their heads above water....since they depend on Tourist $$ during our majickal Halloween Haunted Happens festivities during October...

A lot of Tours were cancelled cuz of the storm....Even ferry service was cancelled do to high and dangerous Ocean wave conditions as well...witch meant that revenues on HALLOWEEN were severely down...leaving many businesses forced to close their doors and people losing their jobs!!!...
