Just out of curiosity after checking the weather forecast in my own town on Friday morning, I looked up the forecast for a bunch of towns I've been
to along the East Coast.
Over and over, I'd see 30-65 Kilometer winds, and maybe a few inches of rain. I checked Atlantic City, Myrtle Beach, Wilmington Delaware, Atlantic
City, Virginia Beach, Norfolk and a bunch of others. Nothing that forecast more than a somewhat bad storm but nothing worse than what we had in
Ontario last week.
I checked US sites after that, then came across Steven Goddard's blog that covered the same thing in more detail. So I started to wonder: WHY the
hype? And came up with a few theories.
- Media hype - slow news, ratings, covering up Libya or burying some other news
- An excuse to temporarily boost consumer spending
- An excuse for any future lousy GDP number
As for the over-the-top fearmongering in NYC:
- Bloomberg being a dictator
- Real flooding risk to lower Manhatten and few ways out
- Preparation for false flag
- Cover story for real terrorist threat
- Stock market - keep the traders home - either a bad crash, or with maybe the ECB planning some bailout, an epic rally.
Who knows... But all the hype does is make it worse when the next genuinely bad storm comes and people will be too complacent about a Category 5 or
something that's a real danger.
