That Times Square sign looks like it has bullet holes all over it. That obviously isn't recently.

So far, Irene has not been very impressive. The news media is overreacting, just like with the earthquake.

"So far" (1:30 am) is well before when they are predicting to be the worst of the storm. If you want to say I told you so, then wait and do so tomorrow after 10 am.

Dude it's barely even started. The highest winds won't be until 8 am (75mph).

Ehh, they'll get a hurricane/TS that's for sure, but I think there will be a lot of I told you so going around tomorrow. I for one have been impressed with what I've heard about how NJ and NY are handling this storm. I've been through a few Cat 1's and the damage was very mild, hoping the same for the NE.

You guys should be getting the blunt of it pretty soon. Best of luck to everyone up there, especially those that live near the water. Hopefully the damage will be minimal and everyone can get back to their lives pretty quickly.

most people under, too. i've been cynical about storms since I was eight!
