I was expecting to see floods and cows flying away from this hurricane. Disappointed right now.
An acquaintance from school wrote this on twitter and, honestly, I’m quite annoyed. Did you really want our campus to turn into a disaster zone? Did you want people to lose their lives? We should be happy that we were spared the worst of the storm, unlike other places like NJ and NYC. Speaking of those places, this comment completely mocks their horrible and horrific experience. I would like to see you go to New York and tell a New Yorker in the flood zone that you were “disappointed” that there weren’t “floods” and “cows flying away.” Even if this comment was made in jest, it’s completely insensitive to those people who lost everything, are currently living w/o power or water, etc.
Shaking my head at stupidity.
We’re goddamn lucky it wasn’t any worse because I’ve been looking at information about the conditions in NY because of my family and it’s freaking terrible out there. I CAN’T EVEN REACH MY SISTER AND IT’S FREAKING ME OUT. While everything was drying and calming down early this morning/late last night where I am, I was worrying over whether some random tree would crack and fall and kill my parents because it already happened to somebody else’s parents in my town. I have a tendency to worry too much but that hit a little too close to home.
Please don’t make jokes or stupid comments about Hurricane Sandy.

We were just talking about this the other day.
Sister: *grumbling about driving*
Dad: You should be able to drive like a natural since you do so well on Mario Kart!
Sister: Oh, yes, because Rainbow Road is exactly like real life, right.
(I got my license despite always falling on Rainbow Road lol. I’m not as pro as my sister… XD)
