Continual high winds and light rain for now. Once again, we are all hunkering down.


We have a Wind advisory warning until 6:00am Thursday morning.  We are closer to the water, so we are just looking at rain.  Snow in the higher elevations of course.

Far Rockaway Teachers Care

Posted: 07 Nov 2012 09:17 AM PST

Far Rockaway PS 43 has not only lost power and part of the school has been flooded out, their students are living in a nightmare. These students have no power, heat, clean water, toiletries, first aid and they are struggling to eat.

Well, PS 43 teachers where not going to let their "their kids" suffer. These men and woman had organized supply/food drives in their own communities. Once their trucks where filled with donations, the teaches hit the road on Election Day morning to set up in front of their school and give relief to "their kids" and the families that live in the area.

The crowd erupted in cheers as President Obama was seen on TV screens taking to the stage in Chicago. This was the scene in Las Vegas at the Nevada Democrats official HQ party.

Eight (8) days after Hurricane Sandy hit NYC, HAZMAT crews take over downtown Manhattan and continue pumping out water from various office towers, town houses, and restaurants.  Nothing below Wall Street appears to be open.


The water is still filling up some areas, including the Staten island Ferry Terminal which itself is closed even though ferry service is running.


Aside from a few tourists and locals heading to Staten Island, only contractors are seen downtown.   All of this footage was shot this morning around 11:00 AM.

Voting in her 20th Presidential Election

Posted: 07 Nov 2012 06:16 AM PST

Philomena DiFrancesco voted yesterday because she says it is her right. This right she has upheld for the past 76 years and first voted for FDR in the 1936 election. Spending most of her 100th year at home with her grandson and family, she was grateful for the chance to get in the car and use the curbside voting that SC provides to handicapped citizens. So without leaving the car she voted for yet another candidate in a long list since her first vote during the Great Depression. Back then and still today she is worried about the country and the economy. So through 9 decades and 20 presidential elections, she has cast her vote to keep America strong. When I told her this morning who had won, all she could say was "I'm glad." This feeling probably has nothing to do with the outcome or the candidate but just a heartfelt sentiment by an 100 year old American who is proud of her country.

Obama Won but Will America Win In the End

Posted: 07 Nov 2012 05:56 AM PST

My name is Byron Thomas and America; we cannot split apart during times like these. We have to find a way to come back together somehow. Our attitudes will decide whether history repeats itself in a good way or bad way. Good way meaning, we will rise up like America has always done in dark times. Bad way meaning, we are going to keep a nation divided and Civil War breaks out again. We definitely don't need another Civil War, so let's come together for our future's sake. I believe we can do it, but do you? Please don't lose hope in this country that I love so much. America WILL NOT FALL!!! America WILL RISE!!! Hope you're on board. Kill People with Kindness and May God Bless America

Obama wins 2012, can he win 2013?

Posted: 07 Nov 2012 02:31 AM PST

In the United Kingdom, our leaders are elected by congressional district (constituencies) when all the votes are counted. Using those states with a 100% precinct count, Romney has a 2% swing. He needed a 3.5% swing to win. Now comes the real concern over the small matter of a fiscal cliff and a divided government (Dem President and Senate, GOP House)

I’m Happy and Ecstatic That Obama Was Re-elected as President of the United States

Posted: 07 Nov 2012 01:09 AM PST


I'm from the Philippines. I've said in my last iReport that if I could vote in this year's US presidential election, I would definitely vote for Obama. I also said in that commentary-video that Obama has an edge over Romney in winning this year's US presidential election. I gave out 5 reasons in that commentary-video on why Obama would win in this year's US presidential election. I'm so happy and ecstatic to hear the news that Obama won the just concluded US presidential election. I'm truly a big fan of Obama, and I know that he deserves to be re-elected as President of the United States. I consider Pres. Obama as a huge icon for racial equality, social justice and global cooperation. The Philippines and the US are close allies. Hence, whoever wins the US presidency, the mentioned countries will continue their friendship.

I believe the Obama administration is quite friendly to Filipino migrant workers. Obama's job-creation programs will certainly assure Filipino migrant workers there of secured employment and stable jobs. The remittances coming from Filipino overseas workers do help strengthen the Philippine economy. About 46 percent of the total remittances coming from overseas (migrant) Filipino workers, the largest section in the remittances' pie, come from those who are right now working in the US. Therefore, the Obama administration's job-creating programs will certainly benefit Filipino migrant workers who are employed in the US, as well as such workers' families here in the Philippines. Remittances from Filipino migrant workers from various parts of the world do help make the Philippine economy become robust and stable.

Pres. Obama is dedicated in searching out for practical solutions that will curtail extreme carbon-emissions to the atmosphere. The Philippine has experienced super typhoons and powerful storm surges in recent years. Such not-so-normal typhoons and storm surges were due to climate change. I think Obama's dedication to environmentalist policies and the creation of a global pact that can reduce carbon-emissions to the atmosphere will help save the Philippines and the rest of the world from the bad effects of global warming. Obama's  sincerity in establishing a global accord that would greatly reduce carbon-emissions will certainly inspire Filipinos to urge the Philippine Government to take part in such a great endeavor. The Obama administration will certainly inspire many Filipinos to search for clean sources of energy.

I think the Obama administration should reach out to Republicans and try to work out deals that will ensure full recovery for the US economy. Both Democratic and Republican Parties should work together in securing economic growth and prosperity for the American nation. Loyalty to the party ends when loyalty to the country begins.

I believe Obama's victory will inspire the citizens of this planet to aspire for a world that is completely free from religious bigotry, racism and cultural intolerance. Obama can surely help in advancing human rights and freedom in all the countries of this world, especially those in the Middle East region. I believe Obama's re-election will further the cause of freedom in the Middle East and in Africa. Pres. Obama has been very sympathetic to pro-democracy groups in the Middle East and in Africa. Congratulations to US Pres. Barack Obama!

Colorado Helps President Obama to Victory

Posted: 07 Nov 2012 12:56 AM PST

Denver, CO- At long last the presidential election has ended with a decisive victory for President Obama. Throughout the country, both Democratic and Republican supporters held events nationwide as audiences closely watched the electoral map take shape. This photo essay intimately captured the scene at the Democratic "Watch Party" in Denver, CO.


Tables at the event had stacks of posters highlighting the importance of "Latinos for Obama" and "Educators for Obama." Inside the Denver Democratic event, which was held at the Sheraton Hotel, a ballroom had two large screen projectors which carried the latest election results from CNN and NBC. Each time there was a Democratic win for the President or other legislative races across the country, the crowd enthusiastically cheered and applauded.


A group of four young Obama campaign supporters featured their Obama "Change" wardrobes and reminisced of their work on the 2008 Obama campaign. Allie Mason commented, "While there was a little less enthusiasm than 2008, but we all we pretty excited to help Obama win again!"


As a Democratic political winner was announced for each state, the crowd cheered louder and louder. Emotions were high and the crowd was electric. You could feel that something big was going to happen. You could see cheers and tears of joy in the crowd.

As Obama reached the magic 270 electoral votes, the crowd erupted again with a large roar as people's arms rose up and the cheering crescendoed.


In one of the more touching scenes, young Dejion Allens recited the Pledge of Allegiance to the crowd made up of several thousand. With Obama's "Forward" poster over his left shoulder, it was a poignant moment which would end a historic day. As the photo was captured, it echoed the words Obama was using in his campaign speeches in the last few days.


President Obama said, "…. kids dreaming of becoming scientists doctors, engineers, or entrepreneurs, diplomats, maybe a president… they need a champion, because the future will never have lobbyists like the status quo does, but those dreams of those kids will be our saving grace, that's what we're fighting for, that's what this election is about. To make sure their voices are heard. We have come too far to turn back now. We've come too far to let our hearts grow weary. To let our hearts grow faint. Now's the time to keep pushing forward!"


And so as we move forward, one day after the election, perhaps it is for all those kids like Dejion and others that we need to have good teachers and champions to help prepare our youth for the uncertain world of tomorrow. At least in Colorado and perhaps all around the U.S. we can only hope that tonight will be the first step to help us move forward, and bring the country back together.

Victory has never been more frustrating

Posted: 06 Nov 2012 11:22 PM PST

While I'm happy Obama won, I am dismayed at the way our electoral system works to beat each candidate down until there's nothing left. I hope going forward that we'll all do our part to really come together to the best of our ability. Lastly, over $6 billion was spent on this election during a time when people are losing homes and jobs. This is atrocious in my eyes. The election is over, I hope the citizens now show our politicians how to lead. It all starts with me. Will it start with you too?

Obama Wins, But Country, Government Still Deeply Divided

Posted: 06 Nov 2012 09:37 PM PST

Unexpectedly,  the national vote for president was wrapped up early tonight as  President Barack Obama won re-election for another 4-year term.

Although  the President won, what he did not win was a mandate. The country from  the vote totals still coming in show that the nation's voters are nearly  divided in half. As I do this report, the challenger Republican Mitt  Romney is currently leading in the popular vote while the President is  winning, has won the Electoral College.

In  Congress, little has changed. Republicans have retained control of the  House of Representatives and the Democrats are keeping the Senate.  Nothing has changed, but some of the faces.

The question becomes whether either side will be willing to try and find common ground for the good of the nation?

Will  Republicans move toward the center especially after seeing some of  their Tea Party candidates fall in the general election?

Will Democrats move toward the center when the nation has voted to keep government divided?

Will  the President start talking to members of Congress and finding a  solution to the economic morass in which we are still buried?

The  nation has spoken. We must all respect the outcome as we have always  done throughout most of our country's history. We must heal the wounds  and remember we are all Americans.

With  the fiscal cliff looming which may send the nation into a deep  recession on January 1, 2013, will Congress and the President find a way  to work together to solve the dilemma and turn the ship of state in a  different direction?

Or will both sides once more play chicken and take the nation to the brink?

The  election is over. It is time to take off the partisan hats and get down  to business. Now is not the time to bull up and stand in a corner  holding one's breath. Now is the time to put aside the politics and do  what is right by the people.

From the Cornfield, I congratulate the President on his re-election. Now, Mr. President lead for all Americans.
