Memo To Panicmongers: Kiss Our New York Ass

NYC’s glorious Times Square live image at 5:17AM today

The lights are still on in New York City.

Even on Satan Island, which uses a technology from the 1800s: poles!

How the hell do we manage to do this?

We do it because we are not East Shitsville, Nowhereland. We don’t live by, “Water drops from sky, everything stops working.”

We have valuable property and businesses here and want them to last.

How bullshit is Irene?

A neighbor’s gate that always blows open during storms is still closed. And no special tying-down was done.

No trash cans are rolling along in streets.

No trees or branches are down.

No poles are down.

Despite El Commandante Mayor Prickberg thinking we were too stupid to heed warnings, his warnings were ego-fueled bullshit designed to maximize his TV time.

“We were lucky,” he’ll whine.

No, you were wrong, asshole!

And we knew it!

    Hey, I’m as much of a proud, if now tragically ex-patriot, New Yorker as anyone. But take a look around at the damage just outside the city – L.I./Westchester/CT, not just E. Shitsville. Now imagine if Bloomberg *didn’t* issue The Big Get Out, *and* instead of Irene dropping from Cat. 1 to TS on Friday, it grew to Cat. 2 or 3, flooded the crap out of the yellow-colored evac zones; carried winds of 40+ more m.p.h. No way to be sure it wouldn’t in time to make a difference (i.e., before Thursday).

    instead of essentially zero NYC deaths, there ended up being, say, 15, or 50, or 200 due to just one f’ed up subway or building. That’s a lot of lives you can’t ever get back, and the blowback from that would be (rightfully) enormous. Remember, people, even New Yorkers, are often too stupid for their own good. Just look at some of the idiots who died in the *very* small tsunami events when the Japan quake action hit the West Coast – morons dragged under because they wanted to surf or look at the Amazing Receding Ocean… daah, pretty!

    Yes, I’m sure having no MTA and/or having to leave the city for a couple days was a huge pain, but keeping the death count at zero is huge. And maybe this is a dry run (no pun) for when a certified Cat. 3 comes rolling up in 2013. ‘Cause, really, this weather shit ain’t getting any less extreme anytime soon.

    Go Yanks-and/or-Mets!
