Underwhelming MY ASS.
I guess if you only factor in the state of New York, which apparently is the only state that matters in media coverage.
The thing was DEVASTATING here in VA. We got the worst of it by far, whether you are talking about flooding, stomr surge, rainfall totals, wind gusts, fatalities, power outages, etc.
75% of central VA was without power, most of us still are. Let me, tell you, it is no picnic living with no electricity for 3 days+ with 2 kids aged 4 and 6. If you're not ready to eat a bullet by the third day it's only because you've become completely numb to the unrelenting mental anguish.
Along with Isabel, that is the worst storm I have ever been through, there are trees down all around our neighborhood, many through people's houses.
I am thankful that more people up and down the coast were not affected, but for those of us that were it remains a very stressful situation.
