The storm is coming! The storm is coming! Walking down the street just now I could swear I felt that little twinge in the air that means that in a few days the Eastern Seaboard is going to get whomped by a whole lot of water. As natural disasters go, a hurricane isnt quite as cool or exciting as a blizzard you cant climb on it afterwards, and it has more potential to break things. But theyre still pretty glorious. Ihopenobodygetshurt and Ihopeeverybodyshomesstayputtogether, but mostly I say
BRING THE RAIN! DO YOUR WORST, POSEIDON! I SHALL FROLIC AMID THE DELUGE AND LAUGH AT THE HOWLING WINDS! AAARRRRGGGGHH!
Granted, Ill be doing this while sitting on the cozy futon indoors sipping tea, but its still gonna be fun.
For constant hurricane coverage, you can always go to the usual sources, but youll learn a heck of a lot more reading Alans Fresh Bilge. While youre at it scroll down and check out his commentary on Isabels progress over the past several days as well. Good stuff.
