Nor'easter brings high
winds, driving sleet to Long
Island, adding to misery
from Sandy recovery

New York Post, by Selim Algar

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/7/2012 9:39:31 PM

Driving sleet and high winds of up to 50 mph today are compounding Long Island's existing misery in both Nassau and Suffolk Counties. All the way in Montauk, desperate owners of oceanfront motels pushed to the brink by Sandy frantically tried to shore up their teetering structures before today's storm. Sand bags packed the back ends of places like the Royal Atlantic where staffers tried to avoid getting knocked out completely by today's Nor-easter. In Sagaponack, Billy Joel's efforts to shore up his Gibson Lane property looked to be faltering as the ocean began to strip away

Of course Barack and Michelle were there filling sand bags today. s/
Interesting that half the electorate thinks Obama did a great job with hurricane Sandy.

If Chris Matthews and Michael Moore think God sent Hurricane Sandy to help Obama win re-election, why do think God sent this new major storm now that Obama has already won?

Good posts, you'all.

My emphathy for the NJ and NY'ers is a zero today.

Maybe I will feel better in a few weeks.
Don't call begging for donations.

As a firefighter, I know I should not feel that way; but life sucks.

Hey you NY/NJ voters...your "man" obama is no doubt eating Kobe steak tonight while you're freezing. Good! Christie probably at Dunkin Donuts. Good! Either way, you all who voted for obama in droves deserve what you get. You will receive not one dime donation from me. other than what obama takes out of my pocket day after day after day without my permission.

Glad other posters have my sentiment. People dumb enough to repeatedly vote dems in year in and year old don't deserve any better than to be left out in the cold. They were too stupid to protect their coastline. Too stupid to prepare for a hurricane much less get out of the way. Then NJ ran off the utility workers and NY pelted them with eggs.

It's obvious who's DNA had what it took to go west, fight the weather, snakes, coyotes and Indians. Not the limp lizard yellow belly Yankees.

I'd help but I'm not unionized. Also, liberals are so far superior to this conservative that it would be an insult if I did offer.//I do have a two year supply of freeze-dried food, multiple water purifiers, first aid supplies, etc. etc. If any of you would like to try and take my family's stuff, I also have a full weapons locker, reserves of ammunition, and heavily armed neighbors who are also conservative.//Happy Holidays to All!

I was going to send money to the relief and Red Cross efforts, then I realized, you know what, my 1969 AMX really does need those factory seat covers and I have been so putting off getting the rally rims for the car. I do want to get it done in time for the big AMC meet here in a few months. So much to do.....

Plus if you add in the vintage Heywood-Wakefield bookcases that my wife just had to have this month, well, I just couldn't break her heart and say no!

Anyways, the liberals out there found time to vote in their god again, I am sure he and Chuckie Schumer have it all handled and don't need my dollars.

When the rains out here in California produce the next big mudslides in liberal Malibu, I'll be out there helping by, you know, documenting the whole thing for my enjoyment from the comfort of my BMW with my new high definition video camera. I am sure Michael Moore has enough money to put his entertainment buddies up in nice hotels.

#17, These types of storms are called Nor'Easters because the winds come from the North East. The storm has a counter-clockwise rotation and the center goes along the coast or to the east. The warm southern air is full of moisture, and mixes with the cold air sucked down from the north creating snow, ice, etc.

It was interesting, last week FEMA was surveying one of the buildings on my campus that has been vacated by my company as we "grew" from close to 10,000 employees in 2000 to 2,500 now. It is a nice building but the self-reliant will be back to normal before FEMA moves in.

People with skin in the game will do what they need to in order to get back to normal the best they can. Those that have no skin in the game will sit back and complain they don't have enough help because someone else has more.

There are self reliant people in the NE.

Man held on $1 million bail

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
