Hurricane Earl

All week, all we heard about was Hurricane Earl. And now that it's arrival is imminent, turns out it's nothing but spit.

Ok. Maybe not. But it went from a category 4 to a 3 and now it's a 2 as it passes by the Carolina coast (poor Outer Banks - every single year!) and when it arrives it won't even have a number. I think they call that a tropical storm or something. Who knows.

Every year, there's a lotta hoopla about the hurricanes. Some are as bad a predicted but most peter out by the time they get here. But just in case, people are taking boats out of the water, evacuating the Cape and Outer Island, and of course, stocking up on food. For a one day event. Because tomorrow it's supposed to be beautiful albeit a bit windy. So one day. And it's all going to happen overnight.

I don't get it.

I am so glad we have another month or two of food and water in the basement.
