    Monday morning there were 50,000 911 calls in NY City. 40,000 of the calls were non emergencies. The volume overwhelmed the 911 lines. This is what will happen in a REAL emergency that affects a large city. New Yorkers are morons. I understand that 10,000 of the calls were from a certain "Liability". :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Um..no.

    New Yorkers are not morons.

    Manhattan dug out from the snow rather nicely.

    Been to New York City. Loved it but 40,000 calls to 911 to complain about the snow is moronic and probably killed people.

    It's high volume for sure..but NYC has some pretty good services.

    The real idiots were the ones driving around Sunday night..and abandoning their cars. Created a big problem for the plows.

    I agree. Preparing for an emergency is the whole battle.

    My street did not see a single salt spreader or plow until 2:30 AM this morning. Fuck Bloomberg and his Pompous ass.

    I'm glad Manhattan dug out so well, the plows looked real good on TV, driving around in circles. Did I remember to say Fuck Bloomberg, Where was I , yeah, Fuck Bloomberg. I bet he saved a whole lot not salting the streets or calling for the snow emergency when it was needed. He and Sanitation can go fuck themselves.

    The New Jersey Gubner declared a state of emergency 6 hours BEFORE the snow fell and that saved the day for NJ.
