The coming storm

Irene is coming to Jersey.

That's a lot more ominous if you know that Irene is a category 3 hurricane about to dump her wrath on the U.S. east coast.

The local media, and national, too, are having hysterics and upping the fear factor. It drives me crazy, so I don't watch.

But everything I've read and seen says we oughta be getting ready, stocking up on fresh water, having a 3-day supply of food and a can opener--yes, it really says that--batteries and flashlights, and on and on.

Somehow I can't get that excited.

Who wants to go to the grocery store and battle the crazies? Not me.

So here I sit, watching the weather channel as long as I can bear it, about 2 minutes, just long enough to see the latest predicted storm tracks.

We managed to survive the rapture. Guess we'll manage this, too.

I'll get back to you on that. ...or not...

  1. Hmm. Could this be the rapture, slightly delayed? Hang on tight to something.

  2. Okay, that just begs an X-rated response, but I'm way too classy for that, right? *snort*
