New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is yelling at people and the power went off for hundreds of thousands of people as Hurricane Sandy created havoc in much of the Northeastern U.S. Did the storm have any affect on you personally?

    I am very concerned it has affected the upcoming election. It gives the cretin obumavich an opportunity to "act" presidential even though he does not the meaning of the word. However, his mendacious staff will point out the steps to him and the teleprompters will place the lies in his ugly mouth.

    I live in Texas, so fear is in my mind. After all the Hurrican only had to do is turn south, then we would had suffered.

    Yes it has it has given me a Migraine listening to the constant whine of the NE Americans who got hit by a Disaster for the first time in what a decade? Wild Fires,Hurricanes,Tornadoes and Flooding take place every year in this country and the NJ/NY'ers could care less they are just "Fly over states" not to mention Mud slides and Earth Quakes Yeah Ca i got your back too you liberal goons.

    Maybe those People in NY/NJ need to put some BIG BOY PANTS On and get the hell over it you pack that many people in to such a small area things are bound to happen kind of like building a City BELOW sea-level then wondering how come it flooded.... NATURE FOOLS! Hell Nature created the Grand Canyon do the freakin math.

    Can I report you for inhumanity? 8 million people lost power, we're looking at well over 100 billion in economic, property, and environmental damages. And what about those who lost their lives? A storm this big has never hit us before.

    I hate the go-go rat race of modern society. That's why I live in a small town. And i think humanity has it coming too. That doesn't mean i should stop caring. Life is sacred, even though OUR life needs to change.

    I never said i did not care about those that died or where hurt, what i said is i am tired of hearing about it i mean how many people died in all the states effected by it was it 16? think that was the last number i have heard more then that can die in 1 tornado in the middle American states with no warning no preparation time i knew about sandy and where it was projected to strike a week before it landed so what damn excuse to these people have for standing around waiting for it?

    It was a disaster partly due to the huge amount of people that "choose" to live in that sardine can sized area that for the most part does not get touched by natural disasters were as the rest of the country generally deals with them all the time.

    About three feet of snow was dumped on my area. My fiance and I packed up our pet and left town Tuesday night. We're staying with friends in an unaffected area for now. Our town has no power and no water. At least one person we knew is dead. I've not been in contact yet with any of my family either. There was flooding where my grandparents live, and my mother lives in the boonies. I've no idea how any of them are.

    What does it take to affect all Americans deeply? Something like this! I have family in the region, and thank God, all are safe and well. Sympathy, empathy and sincere compassion for any disaster victims, is America's badge of honor and key signature! *(God Bless you all, who have, will and are helping our neighbors and fellow Americans through this hurricane Sandy, tragety! Thank You, from my heart!)

    Not physically. I just hurt for those suffering in so many different ways. It may have affected an order I had coming this month. I received an e-mail telling me it may. However I won't need it until next month (cat food), so I asked that they push the order into December.

    Up here in Maine all we saw was the outer bands of the storm. We had a windy night and some rain. We got off very easy.

    I think it is just another proof that global warming, man made or not, is a real problem and we need to start preparing for the changes that are coming instead of waiting until the last minute

    I have been affected minimally. Public transportation has been stalled and my power was down for a short time, but I don't feel that the storm had a major affect on me. Compared to many others, I got through the storm virtually unscathed.

    Great solace that I'm not living there but we've had our share of trouble on this side of the continent. Ask California if you doubt.

    The remnants of Typhoon Freda paid the Wet Coast a visit in 1962.
    The Good Friday quake in Alaska sent a tsunami to port Albernia in 1964 but no-one got hurt as an alarm was sounded (why none for Boxing Day 2004?).
    Nearby Mt. Baker could've done a Mt. St. Helen's (1980) on us in 1975 but quieted down instead.
    Just this week, there was a 7.7 earthquake nearby but no damage was reported.
    Odd, a 6.9 near Olympia (half the distance.) a decade ago was more destructive.

    The worst of it went south of us. We had hard wind (speed 46 at out local airport) the first night with a little rain and have had some rain every day since then but we were very luck here in northern NY state.

    I live in upstate New York,I have a mess in my yard to clean up .A tree fell and just missed my barn,so all is well here.I pray for those who were in Sandy's path,and hope every one is safe and things will get back to normal for you soon.I have seen the photos of lower Manhatten and the Jersey shore ,for some things will never normal because the damage from the surge the landscape has ben changed for ever.Food water and help is on the way ,The Air force reserve airlift wing should be there already with two AC 130's full of supplies,many churches and other groups are sending food supplies as well as help.Upstate won't forget all the help with the last October storm that came form you all,God bless and hang in there your not alone .

    I live across the continent from states affected by Sandy, but I have been very concerned about fellow Americans who have been devastated by Sandy's effects and especially about a friend in Rhode Island. We are all Americans, and what happens to part of us affects all of us.
