Southeast Virginia reporting, over. *bleep*
Storms supposed to come in tomorrow (which is, ironically enough, on my birthday - coincidence?) - shouldn't be too bad. I mean, this got billed to me as "slightly less worse than Isabel", and Isabel was hardly terrible.

The fact that it might hit NYC sure mixes things up. Hope my grandma (and aunts, and uncles, and cousins) up there'll be okay...

Yeesh. The East Coast has really been getting the short end of the stick these days - first the forest fires, then the earthquake, and now the hurricane... getting pretty ridiculous here.

Making the above joke better:

They have girl names because when they arrive, they are wet and wild.
When they leave, they take the car, the house, the money...

But seriously, now, I hope everyone stays fine over there. I'm all the way back in Europe, so I can't really tell. Once again, good luck there

I live in New Hampshire.. but it seems as though the storm wont be too bad by the time it gets here.. which i kinda figured.. it will be tropical storm status.. if even that... i just don't want to lose power.. i lost power for two weeks a couple winters ago after a crazy ice storm.. it sucked.. plus it was really weird since i had taken mushrooms for the first and only time in my life and was sh$t talking electricity and society with my girlfriend and how i kinda wish people could live how they used to.. and then WHAM! the power went out and i heard a big explosion outside.. haha.. careful what you wish for.. it was freezing in my apartment for two weeks.. my poor cat got left alone for a week of that because its hard to cook without electricity etc.. especially in winter time and we stayed at my girlfriends parents house who have a generator... luckily my cat is a maine coon and is furry as heck.. he got ear infections though poor kitty..
=(...

the media/government really just wanted to make sure they warned people extensively just in case since after what happened with hurricane katrina..

i have a feeling it will be problematic but not as bad as they are or were saying earlier since its already a category 1 hurricane and kinda losing steam earlier than predicted.. we will see.. i really was thinking it wouldn't be a big deal. then i went to two supermarkets & walmart after i couldn't find any water for sale anywhere.. and i wasn't even trying to buy water because of the hurricane just normal food shopping because i kinda had a gut feeling that this storm would not be bad here.. my gut feelings are usually always right.. i am psychic after all.. haha.. but damn people stock piling everything! sheesh calm down leave stuff for other people!

New Hampshire people running around like chickens with their heads cut off.. i don't even want to imagine what people around here would be acting like if something bad was to happen here.. i think its time to buy a water purifier so if the sh*te ever hits the fan and all those nuts buy all the water.. well.. ill be able to get water from even puddles!

ugh.. i really don't want to lose power!!! at least not for more than a day..
