Earthquakes & Hurricanes. What's freakin' next?

Published by Dave Kile [dkile] on 2011/8/26 (2881 reads)
Hurricane Irene


It has been a pretty crazy week already with a once in a century 5.9 magnitude earthquake jolting the east coast on Tuesday. Our new threat is with Hurricane Irene which is bearing down on us and expected to strike North Carolina within hours. Already a Cat 3, Irene is forecasted to grind away at the coastlines from North Carolina to Maine. Unfortunately, many of the most Eastern streams in the Northeastern states are already above average for this time of year. More rain and strong winds will make for some pretty challenging conditions over the weekend.

I hope everyone takes appropriate precautions and prepares for what will be a wet and windy weekend for many. Maybe this storm will take out the swarm of locusts stink bugs that is due to onset us next week.

Have a good weekend. I am off to get some gas for my generator!

Have fun and be careful. You may see me dangerously close to opening a few beverages over the weekend. Low risk, high returns!

I kinda have plans for that as well, unless water starts to come in the basement, which I'm hoping doesn't happen.

I have been seeing about three a day now. Sadly I fear it will only get worse over the next few weeks. It motivated me to clean up my garage and put everything into closed up plastic boxes.

Earthquakes, hurricanes - I swear I saw a cloud of locusts and a plague of frogs.
