Sandy and power outages
We are in the path of Sandy, which appears to be considerably less potent when it hits us, wind wise; lots of rain, though.
We are getting messages to prepare for power outages. We've done what we can.
I cannot help but think how nice it would be had we been investing in improving our power sources and delivery systems so the such power outages were LESS likely in a storm rather than EXPECTED.
If you want a quality government, you must be prepared to pay a fair price. If all you want is tax cuts and spending cuts, the government can't work well.
