Our neighborhood got off much easier than a lot of the rest of NYC did. Lots of trees down, some cars wrecked but no buildings appeared to be damage outside of some low lying basements taking in some water.

Nice, Ian. You just stand around taking pictures while all those people were smashed by trees. You could have stopped it!!!

You gotta love New Yorkers just walkin' by uprooted trees and laughing. Great pics, glad you guys are OK!

Look at this poor Dominos driver. He must have been crushed one second after he snapped this pic!

I never knew Ian was such a bloodthirsty shutterbug!:puke:

Sorry. I couldn't take pictures of myself lifting the trees off of the injured senior citizens. I'm pretty strong, but I needed both hands.

I also tried to help that cat. He didn't want anything to do with me though. He didn't need my help. Also there were a shitload of squirrels running around in the area. It was weird. LOTS of squirrels.

And yeah, Evil Ian, it is kind of funny to watch a lot of the people who have been in the area just wander by and shrug it off.

I did stop and talk to one guy for a bit who had to evacuate his house near Rockaway yesterday, came into our area to stay with his family. He said he spoke to his neighbor on the phone and was told that his house was pretty much gone. The damage in our neighborhood was seriously minimal and my heart goes out to those who suffered serious lost.

And the people my neighbor told me he saw goofing around in the street from outside his window around 11pm or so last night are idiots.

I have to say, in all seriousness, that I was a little angry to hear about people who refused to evacuate and had to be rescued later. I can understand not wanting to abandon your home and belongings but why put rescue workers at risk to save your dumb ass.

I completely agree. I think because Hurricane Irene last year fizzled out people expected the same thing to happen this time around, and obviously it did not. Which the Mayor and everyone else were doing their best to stress - this was a much, much bigger and crazier storm. People get stubborn though.

I keep imagining all those cars saying (in Chief Dan George's voice) "It is a good day to park".

That happened with people down here in Jersey. People living near the shore spray painted their boarded up walls with "We survived Irene, bring on Sandy"
