    Here are a few photos I took of my yard a couple of days following hurricane Ike in 2008. Hurricane Ike was a category 2 hurricane. We did not have any flooding in my neighborhood.

    Every square inch of the ground is covered with stuff like this...


    Front yard looking out into street, obliterated red bud tree and uprooted pine tree:










    Uprooted tree:


    My tree fell on neighbor's house:

    That's nothing, I remember vividly the shock of finding my patio on top of my house during one of the 3 storms that hit in 04. That was nice.

    after bertha I was without power for two weeks, had to distill pond water and kill geese to survive. It was kinda like that one movie with tom hanks and that other movie about the guy who dies of starvation in alaska.

    Nope, NYC is getting a hurricane.

    That's funny, I had to go two weeks without power once. I've seen people get into fist fights for gas, I've run out of food before because it all goes rotten. I'm lucky my heater didn't break down or else I'd not be able to shower and have been stinky for a while. It really does become like something out of a movie.

    Yeah, it looks like it's going to jog to the right a bit, keeping it farther from land. The current eye is dissolving, which WAS good, but may get replaced by a new eye. So it could still get stronger. Hurricanez be crazy.

    Looking at a Cat 1 here, but the thing may hit during high tide, making the storm surge worse.

    Ouch, of all the probable paths it chooses, Irene chose the path that would wreck quite a bit of destruction.

    Stay safe, East Coasters.

    getting some wind in eastern NC, lot of rain um...tornado warning for one county last I checked. This reminds me of that one hurricane that fizzled out, but stuck around for a couple of days dropping rain and flooding everything. Can't remember the name of that one. oh cool, lost satellite signal for about ten minutes, it just came back on. *back to watching HSN*
