Kick Us When We’re Down, Why Don’t You Gaia?

So this morning those of us in the North East were predicted to get 1″-3″ of Global Warming overnight.

we got 6-13

In all seriousness, many folks who had just gotten power back lost it again and, well, you can just imagine what these below freezing nights with snow are doing to those poor people who have lost, well everything.

As I was taking the ferry back from Manhattan yesterday in the driving snow (and 30 knot winds) the road was somewhat congested because the township had bucket loaders out scraping up the ocean-soaked mud-encrusted tumbled and battered remnants of people’s lives and depositing them in rusty extra-large dumpsters.

It is heart breaking.

    Indeed it is. I’m seeing it through the eyes of our clients.

    Move down here in hurricane alley near your sister – at least we don’t freeze to death after a hurricane. :(

    Damn. That is ugly dumped on top of bad.

    It’s hard to be around, Mr B. The sadness, anger, frustration, despair, guilt, … all of it is in everyone’s eyes or just below the surface and it seeps into every human interaction and it’s going to be like that for a while. There is no way to describe it unless you’ve been through it.

    Unfortunately you’ve got a lot more experience with this kind of stuff than I do Rob, that I know. It’s awful.

  5. Rob says:

    Just as unfortunately, you may catch up. Wouldn’t wish it on anyone.

    Say, isn’t some organization or other celebrating a birthday today? Well, happy 237th to whoever they are.

    Sheesh, who exactly did you guys piss off up in that corner of the country? If it starts raining frogs or something I’d hightail it out of there, fast.

  8. Kathy Kinsley says:

    @Yojimbo Happy, happy 237th to the US Navy.

    Who would probably be happy to come help out except that Bloomie doesn’t want them because they have (gasp!) GUNS!

    Actually, I’m kind of curious as to why some of the hospital/water/rescue ships haven’t been called in? Are they all too stuck in Asia?

  9. Kathy Kinsley says:

    Or Haiti? Seriously – where are they?
