It would be nice if the article actually had a link to what the headline is suggesting.

The pictures in the article are still cool but no sandy pics.

I, too, was bummed that there was no Sandy. The night pics were pretty cool though, in spite of a damned ad in between each pic in the slideshow.

"It flies over any given point on Earth's surface twice each day at about 1:30 a.m. and p.m..."

Oh wow. It's not really a satellite, per se...more of a probability distribution.

I love how I have a full page advertisement every time I click a link there. That's enough to get me to close out of your website and never come back after the second click.

Is is possible to just go back to calling it Hurricane Sandy instead of Frankenstorm, Superstorm, Awesomestorm?

Never trust a man with two first names, especially when one of them's a woman's.

There were a couple of interesting pics there, but I'm not sure they were worth the butthurt of clicking through a slide show that reloads the entire page each time.

I just marvel at the fact that people spent so much money developing salt marshes and marginal land near the shore without a single thought to the possibility that the reason the Native-American tribes never settled the area (or at least didn't establish permanent residences) and the reason they were salt marshes and marginal land in the first place was the fact that every so many decades or so, a shiatstorm shows up and blasts and floods the place Old Testament style. Now, they'll dredge the sand, rebuild everything (with the help of Federal and state funds of course) and keep their fingers crossed that another Sandy doesn't happen in their lifetime.

Don't get me wrong, my heart goes out to all those who lost loved ones, to those who lost everything in their home and never get it all back, and to all those now struggling to earn a living. But in the rush to rebuild, maybe it's time to think about maybe doing that on higher ground?

My house was destroyed in Sandy; rebuilding; moving back in ASAP

Hey now, I want all of my tax dollars that 0 spent for the "stimulus" and everything else he spent money on returned to me. Same thing with Boston's "Big Dig." Way too much money spent there. Way over budget, and who gives a crap? I've never been to Boston, so why did my tax dollars go for that?

No idea, I figured an artifact of stitching the images together. That is a HUGE area, the horizontal "etching" CAN'T be truly be parallel lights across that much area. It covers a big lake and national grassland and wildlife preserve!

Weird goings on in Williston, ND doncha know?
