I noticed that too. I think more people will consider insurance, but I don't think the other two points will/have happen/happened.

same things could be asked any time a tornado hits the midwest or a wildfire breaks out in Colorado disasters happen and people wont change there ways until it hits too close to home but at that point its only a small fraction of collectors

Seriously???
This was a category 1(just short of a cat 2) hurricane then it mixed with an historic low pressure system off the coast, a cold front from the west & add the blocking high pressure system over Greenland. Essentially it was 3 storms or storm systems combined. The storm surge was the highest in nearly 200 years in NY/NJ. Freak storm? You bet but no way is it something you or anyone deals with all the time.

RE: did superstorm sandy change card collecting
Honestly, some of these comments disgust me. I live in an area affected by the storm and I believe it was a SUPERSTORM. I know I live in NY and not Florida or another place that gets hit with hurricanes often but this seemed pretty bad to me. I didn't lose anything, except power for 2 weeks. I was one of the few lucky ones in my area and the surrounding areas. There was not too much rain and the wind wasn't extremely strong, but the surge was what did most of the damage. In my area, which is in flood zone B, and was not evacuated or predicted to have much damage, got hit really hard. At least 80% of the cars are totaled, towtrucks cant get them out fast enough! (Somehow my cars didn't get damaged but my neighbors got flooded and totaled) There are still a bunch on sidewalks, in the streets, against poles, that you can see the residue in. In the other areas, flood zone A, people lost everything. All my friends and family in my neighborhood and zone A neighborhoods lost just about everything. All you see is furniture, rugs, and all other stuff that people had to get rid of, in the streets. It is such a sad sight. Stores by me still aren't open and I don't think they will open for a while. We were ready for this storm too. What can you do? People had sandbags, their houses boarded up, and parked their cars at a higher elevation. They still had no luck.

RE: did superstorm sandy change card collecting
I live in NJ and think it is offensive to say this was a mere storm that we weren't prepared for. No one can prepare for trees hitting there house, cutting it in half. For NY's tunnels to be closed because of water is unheard of, in what some people referred to it as "not a big deal." Has Florid dealt with worse? Yes. However, this is the most densely populated area in the country. Further, I am no electrician, but you can't prepare for power outages.

Busting boxes!!!
