A moderate storm?

The Nor'Easter this week was pretty nasty but, as far as I can tell, not a hurricane and not a big killer. Because of that it is worth keeping an eye on the impact as a baseline for other events.

So what are they problems here? Is this the new normal and we should plan on a few disruptions a year? Is this simply the cost of living close to the sea?  Is this a harbinger of things to come? (Robert Kopp says SLR could 8' by 2100) Is it just a problem when people die?

We'll talk about it in class on Thursday.
