BITCHASS SANDY!

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 3, 2012, 6:27 PM





We don't get a lot of coverage on Hurricane Sandy here in Australia, like.. we do, but its not as in depth as it should be in my opinion. But I was just reading about it today after talking to TheOkkwardTurtle who unfortunately lived in areas where Sandy came by. But the brave Okky went out into the storm to help peeps in need, the poor boy even got bruises and cuts from this whole deal. I didn't realise the storm was THAT bad, with over 100 deaths now omg.

This may sound weird but just a few practical survival tips from Ry, well these are just things I heard but sounds legit.. kinda. I've never actually been in a disaster situation before, well besides from that one time when I broke up with my ex (OH SNAP!) but yeah Um here goes, remember how people say when there is an earthquake you should hide under a table, apparently thats not true anymore, you should actually hide between two strong cupboard/wardrobe, so if the ceiling collapse then you got two strong structure to protect your, compare that with the weak table legs.. ok what else? Oh yes if you are cold and has no clothing, a great way to keep warm is to use cling wrap! No Im not busting your balls, if you happen to have cling wrap and stuff, wrap it around your body (In ways that you can move obviously), cling wrap is a great way to keep your body warm apparently. And of course, get lots of glow sticks, both to see where you are as well as letting people know where you are. And instead of calling to see if your friends and family are ok, text instead, as it uses less battery and trust me in these situation you wanna make sure you have enough batteries in your phone, another helpful tip to save batteries is to lower the brightness on your screen, l almost always have mine at lowest brightness. If you have more survival tips to help our fellow brothers and sister, please suggest them below.

But yeah my heart goes out to you all :'U Protect yourself and others, if you can, GET OUT THERE and help others! People and animals alike!
That Sandy is one messed up bitch! Stay strong my friends, DON'T LET HER WIN!

Well for warmth we stayed upstairs covered in more than three blankets each and tryed to stay in one room to keep the heat in, but the room had windows which just made it colder. We stayed in our house for over a week in Sandy, I live 2 blocks from the beach o the Jersey Shore with no heat, water or gas, plus the house and garage flooded around 3 feet up. And my puppy was freaking out, I fee so bad.

what bothers me most is wen I went to school so many people were saying pretty much "pity me, I have no power, but still a house" Look people not trying to get pity but suck it up, I don't hav a house, power, water and my family has medical issues (ie. cancer, type1 diabetes, stroke, etc.) so shut the f*** up and quite complaining. SHEEESSH, I'm living through it, quite complaining about loosing your Juicy Couture this and Prada that and be happy with what you have

i am lucky enough to live in Tennessee, far below where Sandy hit, but im thoroughly pissed off. the American Red Cross has been helping the hundreds of people in downtown New York City who are out of power, but refuse to help THOUSANDS of people in New Jersey (which was UNDER WATER) whose homes are now 4 blocks down the road or on top of their kid or half way to the Bermuda Triangle by now. My friend Niff lives up there somewhere and i aint heard from her since Sandy hit... i rlly hope shes ok...

Yeah, unfortunatly there is still no power ever since the hurricane hit. And most of the gas stations are still shut down the few that are open we have people lined around the block to just get alittle bit of gas before they shut down for the day.

I'm hoping everything is getting better, but it's a verrrrrrrry slow recovery.

Its actually pretty bad. The lines to get gas are like, 3 hours long here in NY, and 90% of the gas stations are closed. Like, 80 houses in queens burnt down and so much happened, between a power plant literally exploding to pieces, and cargo ships getting beached.


Then people down south go around saying "Oh it was just a little rain"... lol

I am currently livin in NH and it wasn't that bad here. But one of your resident's sister lives in NYC, and actually we wanted to come and visit here. But no way- all roads are closed and the power isn't back still. And don't forget about the subway :o

Not to sound callous or insensitive, although I am both of those things, but it does not take a genius to prepare for or avoid a storm that they have had days worth of prior notice about. The fact that people were even in cars on the day just boggles my mind.

I was glad when it was over because some people I know live there and I was really worried for them and then pow the news says that a bad storm should be coming soon to California because it's been long over due and every two centuries it happens :/// Nobody in my town is prepared for a storm. It's hot and dry here most of the time, sometimes even during winter lol We've even had it hail with a completely sunny sky and maybe one lone cloud.

Seeing as how I live in a country that gets no major natural disasters, I'm going to give survival tips for something completely unrelated: When facing of with the zombie hordes (whether they be the slow walking Romero type or the marathon runners of Dawn of the Dead and 28 Days Later) always have a shotgun, remember, Aim for the legs Isaac! The legs!!!

Hope all you people being harassed by hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, heat waves, snow storms and Barney the dinosaur are keeping safe in these troubled 2012 times :)

Kind of an awkward name for a hurricane since one of my graphic design professors that I know well is named Sandy. ^^;

But yea, that storm really surprised me. I thought it wasn't going to reach Massachusetts since I haven't experienced an actual hurricane while living up here. I was actually lucky to not loose electricity. I am worried about my family in Pennsylvania since they were hit by the hurricane, though. I assume that is near New Jersey but since my knowledge of the U.S. map sucks balls I am probably wrong.

I'm thinking it would probably be harder to find two cupboards the right distance from each other to hide between than a table.... :S

This one is obvious, place your hands behind your neck if things are breaking and falling onto you, so you don't have the important part of your spine hit.

Last I checked, it was up to about 82 deaths. Because it evolved from a Hurricane to a Superstorm, it even affect us in the Midwest. But my family and friends live in like Massachusetts and one of my friends lived in Manhattan which was mostly flooded.

I was having a heart attack as it was going through because I couldn't contact ANYONE over there.

hurricanes and such are so strange for me, we don't get them over here. snowstorms sure, but never tornadoes and hugeass storms like sandy :0
safety tips, bottle water in case you run the risk of not having clean drinking water later on, keep a first aid kit well stocked and know how to use it, make sure your loved ones are safe, offer some room for those who are at risk. Oh, and stick together, help each other out and trust each other.
