They thought to name a hurricane after me. Twisted Evil


And so far, it's headed straight for where I live.

Good luck. Hopefully it will bounce off the coast. I'm a little inland for Irene (piedmont NC), but, remembering Fran, we'll see. BTW, you might be due some compensation from the National Weather Service if they did not get permission to use your name. Very Happy

Do you believe in mother nature's magnetism?
Hopefully Irene will mellow by the time she reaches your location. Not supposed to be in new England til the wee hours of Monday morn.

If it's any consolation, if swept away by the storm, at least you leave behind an attractive new avatar for us to remember you by.

I know, I know, dirty old man alert, but hey, I'm just keepin' it real...

P.S. How is the photography coming. Maybe you could get some shots of the approaching weather.

Haha, thank you?

The photography is going really well actually. I am a bit of a hazardous weather chaser, so there is a good chance that I will be getting some photographs of Irene. Though I will be indoors for the majority of the storm. If I get any decent shots, I will definitely share. =)

Then again, they're talking about evacuating us, so if that happens I'll be posting pictures of really awful traffic.

That would be cool.
But all levity aside, stay safe!

I'm in South Florida. A few days ago I asked Park-Lane in NY to hold my recent order until Irene had left my area. Well, we dodged the bullet here but last I checked it's headed for NY! Of course it may swerve away yet, as long-range projections are variable.

They're predicting the end of the world here in Philly - something tells me you'll get it a little worse then us. I'm just using it as an excuse to have a kick-ass hurricane party. drunken

Another form Philly--lots of rain so we'll probably just stay in tomorrow instead of going thrifting. We need some more furniture, too, but I guess it'll have to wait.

Apparently someone missed that memo, Mr. Raff. Every single gallon of drinking and distilled water is gone from WalMart.

Hope all is well, so far with everybody. Watching and waiting here to be hit from Irene. Waves at the Long Branch beach were running about 5 to 6 feet early this am (normal rough here). Spent the morning securing the yard, and organizing our pantry. Hopefully the wind dies down a little and no major flooding occurs. The shelter here in town is closer to the beach and and lower then our house, so no evacuation was felt necessary. Best of luck to all, now that prep is done, time to pack some SGW in the pipe. - John

We're starting to get some good rain here north of Philly--branches are down on a few roads and there's a lot of water around. Thankfully we're situated on a hill, so we don't imagine flooding will be an issue for us. Maybe I'll go smoke a cob out in it and post a video.

Stay safe everyone!

Hey Thomas where are you guys? We're in Mt. Airy and the rain has been pretty bad for a few hours now. My "basement" is actually on ground level and floods anytime we get a hard rain so I'm already ankle deep in water down there. Gotta love these old stone houses! Luckly we don't have much down there that can't get wet. As long as it doesn't make too far toward the center of the house or get much higher than a foot or so we'll be alright.

You're right about the folks at the stores. My wife went to the supermarket yesterday to get milk and there was a woman getting $100 worth of lunch meat!

Keep us posted. As I'm watching the news this morning, you guys (gal) are in my thoughts. I lived through Hurricane Hugo when it here in Charlotte, and remember what a mess it was. I hope you all continue to have power.

We're in Jenkintown, and have water, electricity, and no damage or flooding--just a few spots of water in the basement, but everything is on a pallet. Saw a few downed trees on the way home from Chestnut Hill last night, but haven't heard of much else.

Hope all you guys on the east coast fair well. We have been lucky and haven't had one hit us in like six years down here, might cool it off a little though Smile . Good luck to all and be safe.

Well we survived the flooding. Burned out our submersible pump but that was the only casualty. We've been without power now for the better part of the day but the good news is I've had plenty of smoking time! Already made my way through a bowl of OJK and a couple of bowls of 1Q. Thinking its about time for some Squadron Leader.

Hope everyone else out there is still dry!
