Ophelia has been upgraded to a category 1 hurricane and it’s moving like it has drawn a bead on my location. They’ve even done mandatory evacuations of some of the nearby areas that are on the beach front.
Also, this isn’t exactly encouraging news:
“North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley said coastal residents should be prepared to go without power from two to three days.”
2-3 days? If my power is out for 2-3 days, I blame FEMA, Chimpy McBushHitler, and Haliburton! Furthermore, for every hour that my power is out, I demand that a new FEMA employee be fired or else I’ll be forced to start looting TVs, stereos, and other essentials to survive!
In any case, again, if it turns out that there are no updates for a couple of days, it’s not because I’ve gotten lazy, it’s because of Ophelia. But, who knows? Maybe, Karl Rove will read this, use the VRWC’s weather machine and guide the storm out to sea =D
