"Here comes the story of the Hurricane
The man the authorities came to blame
For something that he never done
Put him in a prison cell but one time he could-a been
The champion of the world."
So, even as I speak Hurricane Irene is headed straight for the outer coast of NC and further up north to NJ, NY, and any other state unfortunate enough to be in it's way.
I believe I'll(SC) be alright, but you never know; Irene could be a cruel bitch and make a sharp right turn, and then we're fucked. But I think we'll be okay, so save your prayers for NC and everyone else north of the Mason-Dixon Line.
Oddly enough, this isn't the 1st time a devastating hurricane named Irene rolled into town.
Back around Oct. 15, 1999, there was another hurricane named Irene that hit South Florida. Ask them, they probably still remember. The storm produced 10 to 20 inches of rain and caused severe widespread flooding, while more than 700,000 homes and businesses lost power.
Not to mention that eight people were killed. Five were electrocuted and three drove vehicles into canals. Additionally, tornadoes injured three people in Broward County.
Irene came as a surprise to many residents because they weren't expecting a hurricane, even though they knew a storm was approaching. Crazy.
Finally, since I am Mr. Morbid, here's your not-so moment of the day, in a little ditty I like to call "Aquaman's Revenge."
