I'm clear over on the Pa. Ohio line & I went out & bought an extra 10 gal.s of gas for the generator & a few batteries & such just in case. If I lived in the area that they said was going to get the brunt (& did) I for sure would have had supplies or been gone long before the storm.

You know Sam, I get ready for every predicted snowstorm the same way. It doesn't matter. When you live back on a long farm lane that only has 1 house on the pole fuse, you do things like that. We filled the tractors with gas (additional gas storage) and filled up the cans giving us an additional 30 gallons readily available. The backhoe was filled with diesel and an additional 12 gallons of fuel in cans.

The house had a generator panel put in years ago to run the well pump and AA 260 with a few additional outlets for the fridge and freezer and TV.

I'm not really in the category of a full blown "prepper" but we can take care of ourselves for quite a few days. And we did just that a few years ago with the Blizzard in I think '83 or was it '93 ?? Took 1 full day just to get the driveway opened only to find out the main PENNDOT maintained road was impassable for another 2 days.

The more modernized we get, the more and more it seems like people forget to prepare themselves. The family has a summer place in DE. The Saturday before the storm, my brother went down to secure it. The Phila area weather people were telling us for a couple of days that Sandy was coming. But I saw it coming for at least a week when I saw the front coming from the west and this storm coming from the south. Of course no one realized what the full extent and just how big this thing would eventually become, but they sure should have been doing something to get ready for it.

I warned everyone in the Engineer's Quarters at least a week in advance about this storm. This was at Hoboken Terminal which is now devastated. I didn't have to modify my lifestyle very much to do with out power. I just didn't waste so much time on the internet since it wasn't available. I bought some canned goods, filled up my Kerosene cans and cleaned out the gutters on the house. I had plenty of light, heat, entertainment and hot food.
Others around me didn't fare so well however.

If you haven't caught the news, parts of New York City are descending into anarchy. People are finding what ever weapons they can get their hands on to defend what's left of their homes from large, roving gangs of looters. No cops or security to be found apparently. It's everyone for themselves.
I have co workers who live in these areas. It's as bad as the hype says it is.

3 words ...... High Capacity Magazines.


Time to band together with the neighbors and create your own compound with its own perimeter. :rambo2: :rambo3:


Sort of just like the same after Katrina/Rita. And without sounding totally racist..... Sort of the same type people. Or at least from what I've seen and heard.


Sad to see happening but not totally surprised at all. These are the people who depend entirely on the gov for everything.
Wonder if they are using their ObamaPhones to call for help ????

Only folks with guns in NYC are the police (most of whom will be home, out of NYC, taking care of their families) and criminals ... thanks to that traitorous moron Bloomberg.

If I never set foot in that *censored* again, it'll be too soon. May God help the good folks.

Crime rates are down by 1/3 in the days following the storm.

Reality and perception are often different things.

I've got a buddy who's house is at the end on a fairly long drive. As you drive up there's a sign posted on his garage that reads, "If you can read this, you're in range". Cracks me up every time I visit him.

Crime is down across the board. The entire thread implies the exact opposite. You'd think if society were collapsing in the affected areas, there'd be more murders, rapes, assaults, etc. Instead, crime is down. Kinda kills the initial thesis of the thread about the "urban animal".

Instead we should be talking about the good things coming out of this, how some are helping out & pulling together, many Corp.s are donating supplies & money, even politicians are putting aside some differences, this is only the sixth day & they have come a long way & I think many know it will never be the same & it's time to start over.
