Poorman Meets Hurricane Sandy

What is Loveline creator, former Orange County TV host (pick a station, any station) and Newport Beach “Poor Palace” resident Poorman (a.k.a. Jim Trenton) doing on the streets of New York City in the middle of Hurricane Sandy?

Why, the backstroke, of course.

Here's a photo Poorman, who relocated to NYC but hosts a show out of a San Bernardino radio station (assuming that bridge hasn't been burned yet), just posted on his Facebook page.

His message:

in a hurricane. When I first jogged under this bridge (Brooklyn Bridge)
at 5 PM, there was no flooding. This pic was taken at 6:15 PM upon my
return. Cops drove us out of there a minute later. The street above this
was also flooded. I just got back, and have since experienced 75 MPH
winds (almost blew me away), Fallen trees everywhere, and heard
exploding transformers. And it's getting worse.

Stay dry, buddy.
