I may actually throw away flash lights and batteries before it gets to me, that's how confident I am that this is just fear mongering for New Englanders....

As far as I can recall, the only storm to approach the New York metro area that came close to this in hype was Hurricane Gloria in 1985, which was predicted to basically destroy Long Island. It caused damage, but not as bad as expected. Hopefully the same thing happens with Irene-not just for NYC, but the whole east coast.
