It’s really important that everybody, even those who aren’t in the kind of path of this storm, reflect about what it means that in the warmest year in U.S. history, … in a year when we saw, essentially, summer sea ice in the Arctic just vanish before our eyes, what it means that we’re now seeing storms of this unprecedented magnitude.”
A special shout-out to my in-laws on Long Island who we’ve been trying to contact today: Hope you’re safe!
My thoughts are with everyone in the path of this storm, which is hopefully just over-hyped.

On a lighter note…
