    Activity is starting to pick up.

    Earl appears to be in a position to threaten the Mid-Atlantic coast, and Fiona is not too far behind.

    Depending on where you live, this would be a good time to check on your emergency preparations. Please don't wait until the last minute.

    Bad year to rent a place over the holiday weekend in the Outer Banks.

    That said, Mrs. 93 and Lil 93 will be headed down there the weekend of the 18th. :)

    Earl could fuck some shit up. It's a cat 4, and could possibly be around cat 5 later this week, though cat 4 seems more likely. Of course, as the NHC told me "if you're talking the difference between 145 mph and 156 mph, that's kind of a moot point." It looks as if it's going to move in pretty close to the coast before bouncing off to sea. The outer banks are definitely on the clock. But so is the Cape Cod area, and even Long Island.

    They all should be on the "cleaner" side of the hurricane, at least. But if it's a Cat 4, that's not much of a relief.

    Current track looks like Jersey shore could get pounded Friday

    If they can convince all the douchebags who live there to assemble on the beaches for a massive hurricane party, it might not be all bad.

    If Earl soakes the ground and Fiona comes up behind it with high winds, that is where you will see the real trouble with uprooted trees and power out everywhere.

    But right now Earl just looks like a shoreline thing.

    We need Snooki and the Situation to be roaming the beach drunk when Earl hits.

    And 99% of the people who live at the Jersey shore -- other than Sleaze-side Heights -- are not douchebags

    Yeah, I often forget that last part. Seaside was the easiest to reach beach for me, so I spent way too many of my formative years there. When you want to hop in the car and make a random beach trip at 11 p.m., you go to the closest place and you can kind of ignore the clientele to an extent.
    There's lots of nice Shore towns once you get off that little barrier island.

    Hey, Lavalette's fine. Or at least it was back in the day.

    Fiona isn't long for this world -- she's running into Earl's outflow and will probably be snuffed.

    Yep, that's what dude on TWC said last night. But there are 2 more potential tropical storms behind her lined up single file heading this general direction.
