A once-in-a-generation storm

This was a claim made by the New York Times. I suspect the writers and editors were befuddled by wishful thinking. The reason, of course, is the existence of global warming. Storms of this kind and magnitude may become common events as the globe stores greater and greater amounts of energy. We can expect longstanding weather patterns to pass away along with a greater and greater number of extreme weather events.
Drill, baby, drill….
