>>> the "new york times" put it today, perhaps in any other year, this nor'easter would have been met with little more than a shrug around this region. but remember, this year, little more than 100 days after hurricane sandy decimated a huge part of this area, this storm is hitting the same people along the same coastline that have just been hit. so even hardened new yorkers are taking no chances this time, getting prepared early, in case the power goes out. some folks have been waiting over an hour to get gas. and we found some gas stations in new york and new jersey already out of fuel.
