Note to everyone: Like last year’s hurricane Irene, a Category 1 that missed NYC but walloped the entire northeast, Sandy should not be taken lightly. There will be heavy rains, flooding and winds will knock down trees and power lines. Be prepared for days without clean water or electricity. We wrote about this last year on how the media discounted Irene’s initial impact because NYC was spared, until they saw what was happening north of the media epicenter.
People might fall into the same mindset that Sandy is being over-hyped, and that could be true. TV stations have to pay their bills, too. But over-hyped doesn’t mean that there’s no danger.
