    Looks like Irene is going to spoil one of last weekends of summer on East
    Coast.

    Nice reference.

    And, yes, Irene is gonna be a mean one.

    This is nasty stuff. After hitting North Carolina, Irene is going to hit the whole East Coast -- and possibly make a direct hit on NYC.

    Wish us North Carolina folks luck. Knowing how we are, the milk, bread and bottled water are probably all gone from the grocery stores by now. And the beer.

    I'm in Rhode Island, and people are completely losing their shit. The media companies aren't exactly helping, since there is rampant, unceasing coverage of the storm as well.

    Will TV be recreating the hurricane next week?

    Wonder if Obama will be calling his vacation short.

    It might be annoying, but it will likely save some lives.

    I'm just glad it turned. The path it was only about Tuesday and it slamming my family but now looks like they'll only catch the edge.

    Projections of likely winds when the damn thing hits New England have been cut in half in the last 16 hours, and for that, am most grateful.

    Obama is scheduled to return to D.C. on Saturday. So he might move departure up a few hours, but probably no more. He does have a telephone, you know.
