Bring Cash To Roosevelt Island Gristedes To Stock Up On Snowstorm Supplies - Gristedes Store Credit Card System Not Working - Maybe Later

Be aware that if you are going to the Roosevelt Island Gristedes today to stock up on supplies for the oncoming snowstorm, you better bring cash. I was at the checkout counter this afternoon ready to pay for my groceries when I learned that their credit card payment system is out of order. I was told by Gristedes empoyees that the credit card transaction outage is intermittent so it may be working later but maybe not. Be prepared with cash.

What is happening to this city? Ever since Irene came along two summers ago every major storm becomes a media event and we are all advised to live a life in panic.

So what else is new? And does anyone think that this bastard who thinks he could be mayor or Kramer from H-R would help or that RIOC would send out an advisory so that people don't fall on their asses on the way to or from "greasedtitties"?

YetAnotherRIer, the same was true in the mid-1980's after Hurricane Gloria, a Category 3 hurricane as it made landfall on Long Island: for the next couple years, there was much media attention to every storm. Then, there were mass evacuations for Gloria, but because of the storm track (which didn't produce much storm surge) and quickness (10 hours from Outer Banks to NYC, produced relatively little rain), many people felt the weather outlets were Crying Wolf. Also, the internet back then didn't have the same kind of volume and public access, so there was less amplification and echo-effect.

Ahh, memories of hearing several covers of Van Morrison's "Gloria" on WNEW-FM, which was a better hurricane storm than Laura Branigan's "Gloria".
