oh... I know this is silly, but growing up, the two times NYC got hit with a major storm, always a tropical storm right under Hurricane stregnth... I
belive it was David and Fred?
anyway, it was the best... I know, that's terrible some people got hurt,blah, blah... NY in a Hurricane was among my favorite memories, I went to the
beach lol (I know I could be killed) butthe waves and the storm and the wind and the sound of an oak tree snapping... woah
I was in a buig building lol, no storm would kill me in there and NYC looks crazy outside the window lightning nailing the buildings... it ws utterly
fun for me...
I also love it when we get a monster blizzard, when you get up early and it's like the day after tomorrow and everything is still and frozen in the
like being alone in NYC after man has died off... it's an erie awesome haunted feeling you only get a few times in a lifetime if your lucky, it
somehow feels profound when you see a city like Ny under the assault of nature and everyone is driven inside...
even going to the beach in the storm for the start of it... it's great to feel that power and yet know you can up upstairs into one of the
impenetrable buildings and be safe
It would be awful if a katrina sized strom hit the island for the beach communities, but manhattan and the more urban locations... the storm feels
great, my friend lives right on brighton beach in a large condo tower, I could make it in in time if a tsunami was coming lol and it would have to be
a real moster to harm me... 80 or 90 feet high for any real risk on the upper floors...
Hurricane would be great, it will come in at 100 mph winds, Ny would be fine waters too cold up there for a katrina incident
If I thought Bertha was coming in strong i'd be driving home right now to beat it there!
