My thoughts are with all my fellow East Coast Bad Movie buddies. We're supposed to get bypassed on the Georgia 'Coastal Empire'  but things look nasty further north.





Ouch. This might be painful...

We've had plenty of rain 'round here.  I truly believe IRENE is going to bypass us, and all will be well.   Thumbup Smile  

I'm in Monmouth County, New Jersey.   

EDIT: After every rain we have had, I think of Texas and wish the rain would go to the farmers...  Bluesad

We could use a good hurricane right now, but the high pressure dome we are under just won't budge to let one in.  So far only three days in August below 100 degrees.  I haven't mowed since the 4th of July.

Irene is my mother's name so my brother and I keep making jokes about the storm.  I'm not worried about it although I live in RI.  We have coastal storms that have trounced all the past "major hurricane of the century" BS they report.  Hence why I insist on worrying more on the storms they don't report.

My brother-in-law, born & raised in Norfolk, finds the mandatory evacuation of the city laughable.

I live in Philly. Last time I remember being affected by a hurricane was '99, Hurricane Floyd. And not even directly. I'm not overly worried by any means.

I was in NY on Long Island when Hurricane Gloria hit in the 80's.
My Ma's name is Gloria...so me and my brothers joked about it too.

All joking aside though-be safe,guys!  Thumbup

We're getting some outer band action this morning, very gusty winds with alternating sunny skies and clouds/rain. We might go out to Tybee this afternoon to watch the huge waves pour in.

Yesterday evening I moved stuff like the outdoor furniture inside.  There are just a few items still to bring in, like some flower pots and wind chimes.  The latter I threatened to leave outside, but Katie doesn't want to hear what they sound like in 90 mph winds.  Otherwise, we always have an emergency kit, so we're as ready as possible.

We also have the benefit of being in Northern DE, so we'll be buffered from the worst of it by New Jersey.  Thanks AHD!

The fire in the Great Dismal Swamp is still going.
The high winds haven't helped.
We could really use that rain.

We have a running joke about what can become a 'missle' during hurricanes. When living in Key Largo and some storm or other was bearing down, the local weatherman (the now famous Bryan Norcross!) was interviewed by a reporter and was repeatedly asked about different objects becoming missles.
"What about a lawn chair?"
"That could become a missle."
"A swingset?"
"A missle."
"A bicycle?"
"Missle."
"Yard gnome? Wheelbarrow? Ladder?"
"Missle. Missle. Missle."

My favorite hurricane tip is to take everything not bolted down and throw it into a swimming pool.
So if you (or your neighbors) happen to have a pool, go for it!

I went through Hurricane Isabel in 2003 in Norfolk, VA. We were without power for 11 days. And of course the hot water was via electric heater. I was one smelly man at the end of 11 days. I managed to get one hot shower during that time by going to a friend's house once his power came up.
