Did you here that the New York, New Jersey area is about to be hit with another storm?

If I ever had any doubt about Climate Change Sandy is absolute proof. The North East never had Hurricanes when I was a child. We had Tropical Storms and near Blizzard conditions. I have been caught in scary show storms but Sandy was scary in my own house.
I fear that more is coming and they may be worse.
If anyone tells me it is all a natural cycle I am going to explode. Part of Climate Change maybe natural but Fossil Fuel has clearly accelerated the Climate Change.
Many people in S Beach Staten Island lost everything. It breaks my heart. If I won Lotto I would donate to them directly. Seeing places I know devastated and hearing about children that died makes me cry.
I had a large section of a enormous Oak Tree fall on my house. The incompetent jerk from NYC Parks Department denied me permission too take the tree down. He said, it would never fall. I should sue. If not for the lower roof over hang I would be dead and probably my husband too. It fell on the roof and did not come through the window. My son's room is in the front and I think of him wacking up coming in my room and seeing us dead. The tree is on the side towards the back.

Yes, I have heard about the coming storm. It sounds like it'll bring snow as well.
That's not what you guys need right now.

I wonder if the Parks guy would change his mind if he saw what happened... in person, or a picture?

Things should settle down come winter.
It's outrageous what they get to take down a tree.
The Parks and Recreation workers do it everyday for an hourly wage. So do Utility workers.
I'll bet the $4,000 people are getting close to 1,000% percent profit.

The jerk did not give me his name. He would probably say that now that it is trimmed it will be OK. I am afraid of this tree and I wish we could remove it. They wanted a 1000 dollars to take down the part that fell. My husband got them to agree to 500. They wanted four thousand for the whole tree. We will look into removing it when things go back to normal. If they ever do.
Today at Home Depot I heard more sad stories. Nothing feels normal.
