Cue that Bob Dylan song!
Growing up in New York, my experience with hurricanes is pretty limited, save for the furious Hurricane Gloria in the mid-80's. But, if I recall correctly, my brother and I played outside in that, so I guess it couldn't have been too bad. I do remember school being cancelled though. So...hooray! Then a buddy of mine got married in one in Florida once and...whatever, who cares.
TOP FIVE THINGS TO LIKE ABOUT HURRICANE SANDY (condolences to the people who died)
5) This Video:
I hope no one got hurt during this explosion, but it makes for a good YouTube video. Bright lights...whoooaa...
4) This article about 7 fake Sandy related pictures people are sharing on Social Media.
I especially love the photoshopped still from The Day After Tomorrow. Well done. Ahh, people. They are good for some things.
3) Mitt Romney has to shut his mouth for a few days
Sandy hits. President Obama must do damage control, sign orders, assist FEMA, all that. Normally, anything the President does, Romney is quick to criticize, but its not cool to criticize federal aid for disaster relief, though I'm sure he and his team considered attacking the President, but we all remember how that whole Libya situation worked out. Furthermore, I think Romney once called federal aid "immoral," because, ya know, helping people is a bad thing. I can't believe this Ward Cleaver twat might actually run this country. But I digress...
2) This Picture
I'd have paid 5 bucks to see that happen. Maybe 7.
1) I'm not in it.
Between my Facebook feed, random emails, the news, and texts from my mother, I keep expecting to look out the window and see the effects of torrential downpours and gale force winds. But I'm quickly reminded I live in Southern California and can enjoy 75 and Sunny. Yeah, yeah, tell me to fuck off and all that. I have to admit I do miss these kind of days in New York, because only New York can make such things into a memorable event...but then again...75 and Sunny.
Hate on. No one forced you to live there :D
