14. My impression of their reaction

is that they are inexperienced with hurricanes, unlike the rest of us on the lower coasts. We understand it can take weeks to restore power, and we live with that. They don't know what it's like. Even when they read of our plight in the news, they either don't comprehend it, or the idea of it doesn't linger in their consciousness for long. What happens to us isn't their problem.

Now that it is their problem, they don't know how to live with it.
