I understand where you are coming from.
But the MSM is focusing more on NJ/NY than other areas.
Also, I can relate to what you said, about you being from Colorado so snow is no biggy for you.
Same with us down on the Gulf Coast.....
After all the hurricanes we endure from Florida all the way west to Texas, this is nothing new for us.
[destruction and loss of property/business]
And yet, the news media acts like they themselves have never seen damage like that before.
[maybe not in that specific area]
That being said, I feel sorry for those people because they did not realize the full extent of damage that they would endure. They are not use to
The one thing that set them apart from down here, is something I saw on the news today......
People actually fighting and shoving to get on buses.
Taxi's are few.....
People that do have a car are stuck in traffic for hours.
Shortage of gas......which is par for the course.
One guy offered this couple a ride for $50 bucks....of course they said no.
So a lot of people are having to walk, which they are not accustomed to.
Part of the subway system should be up and running in a day or 2.
In Biloxi/Gulfport Ms. there have been homes along the coast since I was a kid.....
After Katrina, nothing was left except the slab they stood on. [those people lost EVERYTHING!!!]
You couldn't make heads or tails of any land mark.
Every thing gone.....
Very heartbreaking to say the least.
Any way, didn't mean for this to be hyped up, just didn't want these people to go unforgotten because of the focus being on NJ/NY.
