    Default Hurricane Irene

    Those of you living on the east coast of the US, expect to feel the impact of Hurricane Irene. Make sure that your home is prepped up in case the hurricane makes landfall.

    To keep up to date on the track of the hurricane, go to the link for the National Hurricane Center: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

    It is showing a more westward track, and there are reports that even the western edge of the storm will have strong winds.

    To learn more about hurricane preparedness tips, go to this link provided by the National Hurricane Center: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/outreach/prepare.shtml


    I hope everyone here on the east coast of the US stays safe and sound when the hurricane makes landfall.

    I'll be fine because I have an all-in-one disaster survival kit. If you'd like one, pm me with your address, bank account number and specific needs and I'll put one together for you. Hurricane Irene Special!!! Only $499 for a 3-day supply of canned food, some paracord and a cheap plastic flashlight(batteries not included). Thanx

    Funny story.

    I have plans to go hiking with a group of people this weekend, we have been emailing about logistics. Somebody brought up this Irene person, and the person organizing said "Irene is banned from any hikes I organize" and I was like WUHHH? Who is Irene, and why do we have such a problem with her?

    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    I keep getting, "Come on Irene" (Come on Eileen) in my head when I hear the name.

    Seriously though yes, everyone, stay safe.

    Must suck to have the same name as a hurricane.

    Not going to lie, I have no idea what to do. I'm just making sure my e-reader is charged and I've got tons of candles and peanut butter pretzels.

    You'll be fine... as long as your not in the way of the storm, and your windows are covered if you are.

    Bah. Probably some decent odds that my county will be told to evac sometime tomorrow. It's been suggested, but isn't mandatory yet.

    Yeah, I saw the track of the hurricane is going to go up through Cape May all the way up the Garden State Parkway on the Jersey shore. Please be careful.
