    Aaaww, just wash the sea water and seaweed off the car.  It should run fine after that…

    I can maybe understand local residents resisting the clues that they should get their car to higher ground, but how did a police car get left in that situation?

      Officer was probably assigned to direct people to safety. I’ve seen pictures of police and firemen ordering evacuations and piling sandbangs right up until rain started to fall. Then when shit hit the fan.. the car got left behind and I would hope the officer hoofed his way to safety.

      In these circumstances, a flooded police car is probably a good thing because it means someone was doing their job.

         There’s quite a span of time between “the rain started to fall” and “The shit hit the fan”

        That “good thing” is a substantial  asset that now is useless for all the post-storm police activity that will need to be done.

        I still wonder what happened.

          “Substantial asset” is in the eye of the beholder. If a cop or two helped people get out and NYC has 10,000 cop cars, leave the car and help the people. After all, this is a single car, not fleet HQ or something.

    Just think of just how much worse it would be if global warming weren’t a vast liberal conspiracy.

    Just look at those old Polaroids. Wow. Thank goodness this all happened way back in the ’70s and not now!

    I’m thinking maybe I should look for a house a bit higher up the hill.

     NYC has got to be one of the grossest flood locations. Hate to even think of what’s in that water.

    Vote Romney 2012 to ensure that people in situations like this receive no help at all. lol
