    Great editing guys. The title says South Jersey and the picture is Admiral Wilson Blvd. Philadelphia. People will say we over reacted but consider the biggest issue will be the flooding. Most of my neighbors are living with water in their basements right now.

    Sorry – meant to say “That’s NOT unusual.” Still, I wonder if the press will admit, along with Christie and Bloomberg, that they blew this one in a major way. Tropical storm – not Hurricane for S. NJ.

  3. Wise One says:

    Sure there was flooding in NJ. That’s unusual. But it looks like all N.J. got was a tropical storm. Will the press admit it?

      Obviously you do not understand the dynamics of these storms. Had the eye of Irene passed behind NJ this would have put you on what we call the dirty side of the storm. You would have seen a lot more wind and flooding and probably a storm surge. Living in Texas I have seen a lot of these tropical dump a lot a rain and kill a lot of people. This is only August you still have 2 more months of hurricane season left.
