Well, they are right about winter coming on.

Now there is talk about relocating people - this just gets worse and worse.

Dick; Just triing to make sense of your post.
I push people constantly about talking to engineers for educated opinions and honestly I expect more thought.
Do you really think no one should have been upset about two generaters sitting under police gard not being used right after the storm.
How exactly would people on the north east coast prepare for a storm that no one has ever seen before (lowest pressure ever recorded)?
We all make jokes about weather man and women not getting right but they are getting better and maybe we should discourage the joking as it could be a matter of life and death.
Some people did go check into hotels and get out of danger and then the hotels were expected to turn them out to make room for runners from around the world.
About shopping early, something has to be said about big retail out fits that don't also have a plan for quick response before the storm to restock shelves. Walmart and HD did't seem to know they would sell out of batterys and such.
There are more than a few reasons that people don't evacuate, I won't go into that but these people know well in advance that they are staying and should be getting good information on what they should be doing to make a better chance to servive. Telling our selves it was there fault just dosn't wash. With me anyway!

There are lots of opinions, some will agree with you and some will agree with me but I see at as ( if you,re not part of the salution you are the problem.

I am asking you and other engineers here to talk about things that will save lives.
