Well it was predicted for weeks that this might be disastrous here in the NY metro area. So there was time to prepare.

The problem is that people always downplay the magnitude of the storms.

I hope so too. More importantly, I hope the people that think climate change is a politically-driven topic begin to see the proof in the pudding.

Ariella, 

Yes, I think it would be very important to cover what individuals did, not only organizations.

Ariella, 

"And, surprising, as it may be students still have to hand write their essays for the SAT exams."

I am not sure if in the particular case of exams this is surprising. This is also seen in English universities, where in some cases the students are asked to send a handwritten essay explaining their reasons for applying. This may stay as a registy of the students' handwriting for later comparison with the handwritten exams as a way of avoiding cheating. They are also used for graphological tests.

@Susan individual offers tend to be posted on community email lists that allows all members to post. It's also used to spread the word on where people can go for organizations and urge people to spread the word to those who may not be able to access the internet now. Newspapers tend to stick to offers of help from organizations, including information on meals, shelters, distribution centers, loans, and an allocation for food stamps. When things settle down, though, I'd expect to see more coverage of what certain individuals did as human interest pieces.

@Susan  "From the point of view of the reader it is certainly easier to read something that has been typed rather than handwritten, especially if the handwriting is not very clear." True, but the reason why children as early as third grade are already handing in typed work is because the computer makes it so easy to do. Back in the day, we only to type major papers in high school. And, surprising, as it may be students still have to hand write their essays for the SAT exams. In fact, scorers are told not to score typed papers, which, I'd imagine are only allowed for students with special needs.

Ariella, 

How do they make these offers? Do they have a sign somewhere, or they have told their neighbours, or shops nearby so they can tell people? Do the local, maybe smaller papers have written something about this? I think it's important to highlight acts of kindness.

Ariella / Bolaji, 

When I read Bolaji's comment about typewriters I remembered you had (or maybe still have) an intereting article about typewriters, and how some people who grew up without them look for them. 

". . . typing it out in hard copy is really not much better than handwriting it."

I would argue about that. From the point of view of the reader it is certainly easier to read something that has been typed rather than handwritten, especially if the handwriting is not very clear.

@Susan glad to do it. Many right in my neighborhood are still without power, and what people are offering to help is really heartwarming. Many even open their homes to whoever wants a meal, use of electricity and internet, or a shower.
