There is a theory that our whole planet right now and for pretty much as long as humans have been around ice age and all has actually been in a mild
period, and that the natural and more common state of the planet is not this calm serene blue sphere one were experiencing right now. It's natural
state is a more crazy and wild atmosphere and ecosystem especially in the weather department.
Ya... For Years... even Decades, the theory was... "no, these weather patterns are normal"... "we always got earthquakes"... "we always get storms"...
nothing to see here. keep going, keep going.
You will still find some people out there that adhere to this theory...
These storm events, according to Wallace Kaufman and Orrin H. Pilkey, Jr. in their book, "The Beaches Are Moving -- The Drowning of America’s
shoreline," are not disasters in nature but normal events in the grand scale of time recurring more or less regularly. But people, whose lives
are too short to experience these events as such periodic and normal natural events, view them as acts of God, misplaced storms, or freak storms.

Never mind that Sandy was 1000 miles across... I've read 2000 miles in some other sources....
Size of storm: Nearly 1,000 miles wide
NBC News article link
Because Sandy is thousands of miles wide, the storm's powerful effects will be felt all the way to Maine and include strong winds and flooding
So now, it's not that "oh..these are normal...". But because it cannot be denied or overlooked that natural disasters are
intensity and in frequency... Instead, now it's: "these are the new normal" (or more specifically, "the former normal"). That's a slick way for them
to Cover Their _sses.
