So...tell me...how much do you think it's going to affect the economy??? More jobless people, more homeless people, more people without.


Considering how busy the shore is during the off-season, you'll see more employment due to repairs than you will unemployment due to damages.

But it's pretty obvious you're just a doom-mongerer.

I can't speak for the other guy you're freaking out on, but the TV isn't telling me it's no big deal. My friends in LI, SI, NYC, and scattered between southern Delaware & northern Jersey are telling me that much. People I know that were square in the path? Underwhelmed, and doing fine, albeit without power for now. And the kicker is, for such a mess Jersey is, everyone's out SHOPPING today, at the malls and shops with power. The shore might have been scrubbed clean, but away from the shores, devastation? Not so much.

The only people LAUGHING are the ignorant ones that are "safe and protected". I didn't start this thread to debate, or make a point. I started this thread to show the damage that Sandy caused and left behind. If you think this storm will have no bearing or impact, on our economy....YOU'RE SERIOUSLY DELUSIONAL. The mid-west can go back to business as usual....but that won't be happening in New York or New Jersey, any time soon.

And no, i'm not in Jersey...but ALL of my friends are there...and it's not as
as you may think.

Your life may be "hunky dory"....but that's YOUR LIFE. How you think this won't affect your life, in some way...is beyond me. This isn't the mid-west or even New Orleans...for that matter. It's one of the busiest places on the planet.

The only thing anyone in this thread is laughing at is your obsession with linguistic doom-porn and fire and brimstone.

Doom and gloom porn? Fire and Brimstone? Where are you getting this from? Damage is already done. I'm not sitting here screaming: "OMG, OMG, OMG, WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE. I'm being REALISTIC and you're still living in your comfortable world of DENIAL! I'm glad you can chuckle it up...at other people's expense. I'm glad this was a joke to you...but it's really no laughing matter.

And, you know what.....someone's life is filled with "doom and gloom". Fire and brimstone DID rain down from heaven, on someone's head.

Like you I have many fond memories of the Jersey shore, especially Atlantic City. It broke my heart seeing so much of it underwater. In all the years I have gone down there I never saw anything like this. If there is a silver lining I suppose now they have no choice but to bring the boardwalk up to snuff seeing as how much of it was obliterated. Before it was just missing chunks that were often overlooked because they werent close to the tourist traps.


This looks just as bad:

Atlantic City 1962

Last big storm in Lousinanna there was a reporter riding with an old man on a boat through the streets and the reporter was flipping out after a storm and he asked the old guy "have you EVER seen anything like this?" The old guy said "it happens every damn year"

I majored in geology and geography tough guy, you say down "in Australia" and I name the largest cities down under, I didn't think I would need to explain sarcasm. And you don't grasp the idea of the global importance of New York city, they do a little more than sell bananas there, I've been there, I don't like it and I won't go back, but I do realize the importance that the city represents economically.

Here's more "doom and gloom" porn....for you. Since you think everything is juuuuust fiiiiine. Try 5 feet of water under the WTC site. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along. Follow the stupid people that think everything is going to be ok.

BTW....what happened on 911, to the world's economy? And you say, this will have NO affect? lol That's freaking laughable. 911 was an "isolated" event. This event is spread out ALL OVER THE PLACE! Not 1 little area.

WTC Site

Can I just ask what you think happens with underground cavities when water rushes in? Or, more simply, what happens when water meets gravity? You're acting like water rushing downward like it naturally does is something unprecedented, why? They knew this was coming, they knew things would flood underground. Why are you making a mountain out of it? I haven't come across anyone but you doing this.

Woe is us, my laundry room has been inundated with water.

WARNING Graphic image to follow.







For every flooded basement there is, there are at least two that are bone-dry. This is the problem with media, all they show you, and all you show us is the pictures of the damage and then you proceed to chastise anyone who notices how insignificant the small picture is here.

It's Hurricane Irene plus a little worse. You're making it sound like a gigantic bomb hit the east coast.

Despite what the new reporters claim this has happened before and was overdue, at least my research has borne this out. It goes without saying that we have become more out of touch with nature, but this itself is natural due to the increasingly virtual worlds we live in. This was a bad...B-A-D storm, but when a storm makes it that far up it is one bad storm. CAT 1 makes it up or CAT 2 your gonna get your ass kicked.

Just because they knew about it doesn't mean everything would be OK, it just means they were prepared for the aftermath.

Not to pi$$ on everyones pitty party, but isn't it really us humans own stupidity here? Yes we need a place to live but if you keep getting storms and flooding, etc. over time don't you think that you should just tear down the buildings and return the land back to nature. Ever hurricane sine Katrina, I have no remore for the people, this is what you get for taking away wetlands, building on or near the coast, etc.


What, like it's really that simple for people who've lived on the East Coast all their lives to suddenly move inland and expect all their friends and family to follow suit together.

What do you think this is? SIMS....

I found the reporting to be absolutely a joke.

Let's start with The Battery. They showed video of a line of leaf litter on a pristine lawn 10 yrds from the seawall with three 2x6s and called it the high water mark. Well, to sell the story, I guess they needed to "find some evidence" of flooding.
However, that does not explain the pics of subways inundated and cars floating about. The Battery would be the area to have been flooded first, and wasn't.

Then we have the Point Pleasant "ground zero" as the ONE location they were allowed to film from.
There was a green screen set up there for the reporters to stand in front of showing a raging sea picture.
Same one yesterday and today. Only today the guy I guess, didn't know what they were showing because he described it as calm seas. It was so stupid. They never walked past a certain point but the way it was situated with the waves behind them, those waves would have ende up splashing the purported deck back there or
rolling well inland. But, instead they just rolled into "nothing". The seven or eight foot swells they showed just continuously went sideways and never toward shore. I've lived near the beach in all weather, all my life and I knew immediately they were staged in front of a green screen.

I watched front end loaders depositing the sand all over the place, never a dump truck to load it into and carry it away.

Lastly, they had a "flyover" by the CG supposedly that showed a very amatuerish CGI of a sim neighborhood
covered in sand. Nothing else. Just sand for blocks and blocks. They had parking meters staged with only the top half sticking up yet no high water marks on any of the buildings they showed a reporter in front of, with no build up of sand around the "homes". It looked very staged for the cameras.

A fully lit night scene of a carosel surrounded on all sides by water?! Please. That would not happen.
But, of course the photo was shopped. Every photo I've seen has been doctored. I have a theory of what this is really all about.

And just up the road on Cape May not a stick or a water puddle anywhere in sight! Every lawn perfectly manicured and no damage whatsoever. My, my, how capricious our little Sandy was.

The Boardwalk video was a fake, because I saw a reporter saying all is well and no damage to casinos, of course.
No damage to any resort or hotels shown at all. Just a couple derelect motor courts is all the media is allowed to show.

I am guessing that's because there IS no damage to show.

I have a lot more to say about this whole thing but, why bother.
Well, I am worried about the fate of people who are not going to be ALLOWED to see their property for two weeks.
Maybe they'll be bulldozed in their absense and be told, the storm did it.
Get no insurance money "because they were flooded", and be sold out as prime real estate for a seaside casino and exclusive gated villas.
