Well lets just say Hurricane Irene fell short of expectations. From the words that were used to describe this hurricane such as “Historic” and “Extremely Dangerous” neither was present during this storm that hit New York. Other than a couple of fallen trees, a little flooding and some people without power, the storm was pretty much just that, a storm. While the news is still trying to squeeze every inch of drama out of this story and will continue to over hype it for the next week, let’s face it, this was a dud.
