    Sandy Gas Shortage Continues

    Check out the red vs green:
    http://www.gasbuddy.com/sandy/

    I friggin pounced on 2 stations near my house luckily when I saw red turn green. I suspect by the convergence on the stations that others were doing the same. My wife is due with baby boy #2 in 3 days and I could not risk the ever shrinking tank.



    The biggest surprise... No police presence and complete law and order.

    Unbelieveable! Prayers out to you, your wife adn your family, BF1. Long Island is still such a mess! Love and prayers out to all my friends and family still suffering without power, heat and/or gas! Hopefully this next storm won't amount to much of anything and the workers will still be able to keep plugging away to get things restored! :hug: Even though I no longer live on Long Island, it is still home in my heart!


    But for the grace of God go I
    I must've been born a lucky guy
    Heaven only knows how I've been blessed
    With the gift of you love
    And I look around and all I see
    Is your happiness embracing me
    Oh Lord I'd be lost
    But for the grace of God

    Damn, I wonder what area. I can imagine... Luckily that's not around me that I know of.

    that's brilliant.

    Syphon gas from the power company trucks, so they won't be able to restore power to the gas stations or to their homes. Then there's still no gas and no power.

    Morons.

    There are idiots showing up to gas stations with buckets (not gas cans) and garbage cans looking to fill them up. Stuff like this not only brings out the worst it some, it brings out the idiots too.
