What Hurricane?

Hockey fans from Vancouver invaded Times Square last night.

Before you expect the worst, they enjoyed a game of street hockey.

The hurricane ...another media-generated non-story.

If the hurricane was a bit stronger, the track was a few miles off, or the speed was different so it coincided with high tide coming into New York and the salt water took out the underground electrical cables - or if the mass transit wasn’t shut down so the workers could sandbag and aquadam the tracks to prevent water from flooding the tunnels, it could have been much worse.

Despite the repairs needed all over the nation to infrastructure, it hasn’t gone completely to sh** yet. Storms of the same strength kill far more people and do a lot more damage in other parts of the world.

It wasn’t a “non-story” because of the hurricane itself. It was a so-called “non-story” because most people secured property and got the eff out of the way. Maybe next storm will be severe enough to cough up a few thousand bodies and pass the threshold as a “real” story.

Several people lost their lives due to Hurricane Irene, and thousands are still without power.  To the millions who live in the storm track, it was not a media generated non-story.  THANKFULLY it did not make landfall as a Cat 2 or 3, and believe me when I tell you that the winds and rain as a Cat 1 were bad enough where I live.  It was just a matter of luck that she bobbled over the sounds in NC and changed direction and speed a bit. 

I get the feeling that you’ve never experienced a tropical storm or hurricane.  People who have lived through them usually do not call them a non-story.  New England dodged a bullet, make no mistake about that.
