Aren't they just having the most wonderful time with all of this, meteorologically, at least: maps and charts and flood watches, warning, surges, tide levels, wind categories, it's a wonder they can sleep at night from the excitement.
And of course with three hurricanes in a row (let us not forget what's-it's-name out there) by the end of this, they will all be totally wiped out. Hell, this is more fun than a blizzard.
Not to mention the three kids I saw on a video this morning roller blading down a hurricane soaked street, yep...or the Denial Guy north of Tampa who is telling everyone that this silly bit of wind has been so hyped...then he went and pushed a mattress against his plate glass window. Just in case. His tone reminds me of people who say, "I didnt get hurt, what are YOU complaining about...?"
Beyond that I can only imagine what it must be like to be halfway up the highway heading for almost anywhere North, and you're on your last gallon of gas, someone says, "daddy, I gotta pee"
and the winds are now 60 MPH and rising.
