What’s “GD political crap” about posting a link to a live webcam from the streets of NYC???

I also have someone I care about who lives in the city, and I’m sure others are also wondering about the real-time appearance of this storm on the ground.

Lighten up.

Take care everyone! See you all on the other side of the storm.

“People are complete idiots about water.”

Like this guy?

Crystal Beach man rode out Ike on log
http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=weather/hurricane&id=6402621

HOUSTON (KTRK) — It’s a story of survival that’s hard to believe. A man rode out Hurricane Ike floating on debris and anything else he could grab.

He spoke exclusively to Eyewitness News about how he survived after his home was submerged in flood waters on Crystal Beach.

The scrapes and cuts don’t even begin to tell the story of Mark Davidson.

“I went and got my dog dags and put them on in case I would die that night because it was getting that bad,” said Davidson.
Davidson decided to ride the storm out in his home in Crystal Beach on Avenue D. It was a mistake the retired Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer would soon regret.

“And about that time I felt the back of the house, come up just like the stern of the ship and came down on the pilings pretty hard,” said Davidson.

Around 1am Saturday morning, his house started taking in water and slowing drifting. By 2am, Davidson decided to get out. The former U.S. Navy diver would be tested to the limit.

“I swam out and as soon as I surfaced, I was level with the roof,” he said. “The water was level with the roof.”

For the next 14 hours, Davidson would do whatever it took to survive.

“When I was on the telephone pole, then I started looking around and see what was going on that’s when I saw houses floating just like bumper boats, just crushing and ripping in half.”

The telephone pole he was clinging to soon went under and Davidson knew he had to swim away from all the debris on Crystal Beach.

“Because that was going to crush and kill me,” he said.

He began his journey through town using pieces of plywood to maneuver his way around. But it was a patio table he used as a boogie board that he says saved his life.

“I would not let that thing go for nothing,” said Davidson.

For the next several hours, Davidson was drifting toward East Bay.

“It was like being dumped under water and then come up for a breath dumped under water, dumped under water and it was like that the entire evening,” said Davidson.

But he endured the storm even after an encounter with an alligator and in the end found safety when he finally came ashore at Smith Point. Where the National Guard help rescue him.

“The one thing I was thinking is that I wanted to see my wife, my dog, my brothers and I have a lot of things to finish in this life,” said Davidson. “I am not done yet.”

Davidson says he is done living on the coast.

(I would have at least stocked up on water wings and/or a life jacket!)

CNY. We’ve got some light, gusty winds but are getting some decent rainfall at the moment. It just started a little bit ago.

I talked to a sister in Western NY and she said they’re expecting a lot of power outages due to downed trees. The winds will be coming out of a different direction than usual and blowing against the normal growth of the trees. Buffalo gets pretty consistent westerly winds to the trees have grown to adapt to that. Since the winds will be coming from a different direction, the root systems won’t have the strength to deal with it and could come down easily.

I could see that being an issue here in CNY as well. The prevailing southwesterlies and all.

As with all aspects of this storm, time will tell.

North Shore Long Island is supposed to have a great high tide....that is where I work.

When it rains, the roads are closed due to flooding. With this “perfect storm” I expect our office to be flooded.

A year or 2 ago, there was a tremdous rainstorm which prevented me to geting to work. Never in my 11 plus years did I see our corner flooded, past the bottom of car doors.

This is going to screw us royaly.

Looks like I was wrong with the theory this would probably peter out.

That 937.5mb is the lowest reading of any storm on record.

Previous low was 940.0mb.

Sorry that it didn’t fade away...

When they first modeled this storm last week, they showed it going out to sea.
