its mother nature and the mechanic's of rescue!

any day above ground and not breathing water-GOOD DAY!

I'm glad the ship lived and I'm glad the people didn't drown-cept the captain...

HMS Bounty has lots of history and balls....

Some ships and people have more credibility tan some of us living....

arm chair crudites have no creditability unless they gone down with a beautifuler ship..too

Re: Tell Me Why?

As to why, I've heard a lot of cynicism over the "storm of the century" media coverage, and denial that this was anything out of the usual, just hype. I think that could lead an experienced captain who maybe saw Irene, which was maybe a third the size of Sandy, to think he could handle it, "odds are" sort of thing. And then, many folks need to believe nothing is really changing in their world. Foolish of course. And then there are climate change deniers with something to prove. Sadly, the odds of the captain surviving are slim and nil so we may never know. Perhaps the crew, in the media or at an inquest can fill us in.
