I'm trying to imagine a 32.5 foot wave in New York Harbor .... all the yuppies in their hi-rises watching the storm and NO ONE captured it on film.
I was in New Jersey (Newark) just last year around this time, I can't imagine all the devastation. It's one thing to see Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana or Texas getting hit by a Hurricane because I would never, ever, ever go to any of those states. Ever. But this storm I was constantly pointing out all the places along the WV through NY seaboard I would go every other summer. Sad.

Why doesnt that count?
The snow that blanketed Mount LeConte during Superstorm Sandy set a record for the month of October, according to the National Weather Service.
The third highest peak in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park received 32 inches of snow this week, creating drifts as deep as 7 feet. Park officials say the previous record for October snowfall on Mount LeConte was a mere 6 inches set in 2010.
