Friday, Saturday, and Sunday I saw blogs, Facebook postings, and even public officials (Mayor Bloomberg for one) either say the storm's forecasts were hyped or too dire.
So, on Sunday, well before the storm struck, I posted some metrics so you could measure for yourself whether the storm was "hyped."
According to a Tweet from The Washington Post, 7.5 million homes and businesses are without power.
The peak land-based official wind measurement I have seen was 94 mph from the southeast part of NYC Metro. There were many, many gusts above 75 mph in multiple states.
Hyped? No. Excellently forecast? Yes.
I'll have more on the quality of the forecasts later today or tomorrow.
