In Topic: Hurricane Sandy

01 November 2012 - 07:38 AM

a number of communities on long island got slammed, a friend of mine with the lindenhurst FD sent me a photo of houses on a block burnt down to the high water mark, the only thing that saved the bottom floors from burning was the fact they were full of sewage and gas filled water. nearly four decades living on the island and i've never seen destruction like that from a storm. we didn't even take a direct hit like folks in NJ did, we only caught the very fringes of the storm. i could only imagine what would have happened if the wind and the rain were stronger


Where are the island are you? By me, we had massive wind all Monday night/Tuesday Am. Lost power for about 6 hours and just small branches down. The area in front of my house looks like nothing happened. One block over looks like a war zone. There are cars crushed, roadways blocked by huge trees. and people with no power. This morning is 40' so it is pretty cold out. Several of my relatives/good friends in NJ suffered devastating losses. I have seen pictures sent from friends and it is heartbreaking. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.

I work weekends and told my supervisor that I needed to leave as soon as the weather got bad. I was able to get home Monday morning before anything started. Once all my kids were home I felt ok. We lost power on Monday night at 8pm but it came back by 2:30am Tuesday. Plus I had cable, Internet and phone. I suffered no damage other than a few small branches that came down.Outside my house looks like nothing happened. I am extremely fortunate. But go about a block and there are crushed cars, trees blocking roads. It looks like a war zone. I have a number of relatives and good friends (not counting some of the greatest hockey fans in the world) who live in NJ and the ones I have heard from, the news it just heartbreaking.

I have seen the pictures/videos and am sick to my stomach. Please know that I will continued to pray for all of you.

In Topic: Isles to Officially Move to Brooklyn

Just read it on newsdaily.com I used to catch several games at the Coliseum when Devils played the Islanders. It is about a 30 minute drive from my house. But the parking is bad, the bathrooms suck and it is a general nightmare. It will now be a train ride to Brooklyn and a walk across the street. That is if I ever get hockey again

In Topic: Lockout 2012-2013 (Hockey's back!)

I was so pissed off at MLB back in 94 that I have never,ever gone back to a game. I vowed to never spend a dime on MLB again. I was a HUGE fan of baseball. That's why it hurt so much when they cancelled the World Series.

I have become a one sport person and that is Hockey. I played, my kids have played all the way up through college etc. This really hurts. I am on the brink of taking another vow and ask for my Season tickets money back. I endured the last lockout but this is getting old.


That would be me too. I used to like baseball but have not been to a major league game since 94. I did go to a Long Island Ducks game once and it was so slooow that I realized why I am a "one sport" person. But this is getting old. Too many people who are supposed to be adults acting like children that don't play well in the sandbox and probably never will. My daughter is ready to kill me since I have no hockey and I have nothing to watch. I think curling is looking real good

Can't say thanks enough. I work weekends with mentally ill adults and can't always get Devil games. I could always rely on your feed. Thanks for all you did.
