It's been a while since I've posted here, but I wanted to reflect for a moment on Hurricane Sandy in light of Hurricane Harvey approaching Texas, today. Back in 2012, The Weekly Freeporter was active in posting on Facebook and this site. Since then, I've always taken an ear towards reporting severe weather. Well, Harvey is a Category 4 storm. That's no joke - it's stronger than Sandy was, although it lacks the Nor-Easter pushing back against it.
I would hope that all of Long Island united to lend some help to our friends in Texas. We've been where they're about to be (and they, too, have suffered this in the past; look up the Galveston Hurricane), and we want to make sure support is given. With that said, these eight congressmen shouldn't be asking for help for their areas, seeing as they voted against Sandy. But, that's not on their constituents.
