Fortunately, I live in a time where air conditioning exists and I do not have to stand outside in the sun.    I even seek shelter inside.

I go from A/C buidling to my A/C car to the A/C destination.

I'm done with living with places that are icy and cold in the winter.   If I want that, I will go to Colorado and ski.

My ideal next places to live are Hawaii, Bahamas, San Diego or Seattle (kind of does not fit).

And I am directly in its path. Not happy about that. I tried to buy gas today. Had to go to three different stations to find one with any left, and all they had was premium.

It's only like a category 2 or 3 though.  Don't they go up to category 5?

Yeah, the water out there is no where near warm enough to allow it to be a 3, 4, or 5 when it makes landfall.    After having been through a couple hurricanes in Houston the past 5 years, it is really the most problematic for those in low lying coastal areas.   Those people should leave EARLY (in my opinion).    Everyone else just over-hoards stuff and may have to deal with some wind/water damage.    You may lose power for a few (several) hours too.

When Ike hit Houston a couple years, almost the entire city was without power.   I'm on the same grid as three hospitals, so mine was back on after a couple hours.   I have co-workers who did not get it back for 10 days........

So, just keep a few cases of bottled water around.   Oh, all fill up your tub as well.   In case you lose water, you can use that water to flush your toilets.

I went over to south central NJ this morning to put screws in the covers on the storage containers I have my horse stuff in, left at noon and the wind and rain had just started to pick up.  Over on this side of the river in PA it hasn't done much yet.  Current track puts Irene right over Atlantic City tonight and then on to NYC tomorrow morning.

Irene is right off the coast now here in Virginia. They've even had the tornado klaxons blaring. Honestly, it hasn't been that bad here. We haven't even lost power (hence my being able to type this). Isabelle was a lot worse. We lost power for four days when that came through. There was so much debris, they had it piled up in a huge vacant lot for months.

Still, it's quite bizarre, us having an earthquake and a hurricane in the same week. We rarely get hurricanes this far north, and we never get earthquakes. We haven't had a tornado here yet, but there have been some nearby. I guess you could call that a natural disaster hat trick.

People here on the gulf coast of Texas are laughing at the hysterical reporting of a CAT 1 hurricane on the east coast.
