Out of the Blue

Hurricane Sandy is not yet imposing her will on our area the way the first forecasts suggested, so it's still a mystery what sort of impact the storm will have. It's a bit drizzly and windy now, but that's obviously just the early hints, and our village has already declared a state of emergency, which sets a tone. As I said yesterday, there's no reason to be particularly concerned for the BlueTower, as the worst we are likely to suffer in our location is a power outage (though, of course, that would impact my ability to update the site), and here's hoping that others in the path of the storm are equally secure, and that everyone manages to come through this relatively unscathed.

Bats, I'm with you on criticizing people who live in flood plains and get flooded out every 3 years or so. They don't get my sympathy either. I mean how many times does your house need to have 3 ft or more of water in it before you realize it's not a good place to build a house?

But comparing that to living in tornado alley is quite the leap. I have lived in a tornado region for the better part of three decades and only ever seen a tornado once and only twice lived in a community that had significant damage. And one of those really wasn't that big a deal.

And I realize the media is running the hype machine at full force, but Sandy did cause billions of dollars of damage. Your dismissive attitude toward it seems unwarranted and uncharacteristic for you.
 
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
