All night it sounded like a hurricane was storming outside my window. This morning, I woke up and looked at the way the trees were swaying and this weather looks about as bad as it did during hurricane Sandy. The local TV channel predicts wind gusts up to 65 mi/h and sustained winds of 35 mi/h; there are the similar flood warnings. These are the same conditions we encountered by the time Sandy managed to arrive in NYC, but there are no storm warnings, no school closings, no travel advisories, etc,.. What's going on?
I guess wind pattern is different in that it is not a tight circular spin, so perhaps the storm surge won't be as bad. Still, this weather is pretty dangerous and it looks like mayor Bloomberg's handlers haven't prepared anything worthwhile to say. I hope he doesn't get caught with his pants down again, just like during the snow storm 2 years ago.
