New York's Katrina

The Big Apple won't be recovering from Hurricane Sandy for a long time. Here's the Hoboken PATH (underground train) station earlier this evening:

That looks messy.

But I had heard that the three nuke stations are doing okay. One without power, but with 2 weeks supply of fuel for the generators. Hopefully no big problems with those three.

Generators don't do real well under water. Nor do diesel pumps. Let's hope that Oyster Creek poses no immediate threat but is so badly damaged that it is never restarted.

Power outages rising quickly in Phila. region
Some officials fear that full restoration could take more than a week - through Election Day.

They were interviewing former EPA Administrator, "Heck of a Job" Brownie on Fox News this morning.

Heh, heh.

I think you mean FEMA, Mister Tee.

My bad. FEMA, of course.

I'm one of those conservatives who thinks all bureaucracies look alike.

The United States needs FEMA. Big disasters require big help, and 50 little "fema" s will not work effectively anymore than 50 little CDCs or 50 little FDAs or 50 little armies and marine corps.
Brown is a political hack. I hope the current leader of FEMA is not. The entire eastern seaboard is a mess and the recovery under the best of circumstances will take a while.

Hope the third rail got shut off...
