  3. 106 knots is 121/122 mph. That’s impressive. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. MHX is nowhere near the VA/NC border. Not by a long shot. About 3.5-4 hours south of the border. I’m just south of the border in ECG. That’s just below the border.
  5. I see the blue turd has made an appearance. LMAO
  6. Ok. Guess I misconstrued what you said. Storm chasers that purposely put themselves in harms way and ignore governmental warnings? Yes. Charge them for man hours, fuel, flight cost, etc. They should have to pay for that. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I’ll move on, but if he wants photos of what I saw, I’ll be more than glad to post them. There are some things I can’t get out of my head. Two months of recovery work. The constant daily grind of searching flooding and collapsed structures. Talking to families of missing persons. Finding the deceased. Deceased loved ones and pets. Emotional trauma beyond belief. I thought I had seen it all. At that point I was 22 years into my career as a rescue technician with USAR certifications and fighting fires. Little did I know that the things I saw and dealt with continue to be in the forefront of my thoughts at least a couple of times a month. I just get a little ticked off when the discussion turns to Sandy and people who weren’t there spout off numbers. I’m off my soapbox. Feel free to delete if you want. I won’t get mad or butthurt.

  8. Oakwood Beach was obliterated. I was there. I saw it with my own two eyes. At least 20 people died as a direct result of storm surge. You want me to post my own personal photos of the storm surge? I’d be glad to go and find them for you. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Oh, I don’t know. Maybe the walls of the structures I was inside of searching for bodies. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. As someone who deployed to Staten Island two days after Sandy hit, I feel like people who don’t have the ability to evacuate during a mandatory evacuation should be given transport away. Many people don’t have the means to evacuate. How can you bill someone who pays taxes, but doesn’t have the means to escape? I put my life on the line for many years as a public servant. The public’s taxes paid my salary. I was there to give assistance to the best of my ability. I’ll be damned if someone should be charged for me doing my job. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. I can attest to that. I was on a FEMA team assigned to Staten Island from two days after the storm hit until Christmas. 23’ storm surge on Staten Island on Father Cappodano Drive all the way to Olympia Blvd. some storm surge reached 6’ and higher as far away from the beach as Hylan Blvd. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. I’m in Elizabeth City.
  13. 93/75 for a HI of 103. My boys are sticking to my leg, and by boys, I don’t mean male offspring.
