I’m sitting here in my bedroom trying NOT to think about the impending storm and what it may or may not do. Tink made a wonderful Manwich dinner this evening, and we watched a really insipid Divine Design with Candice Olson. I think she must be the Olson twin’s mother or something. PoloRandy’s a bit [...]
Tink and I prepped the basement as much as we could tonight and we’re now having to turn everything else over to Mother Nature’s mercy.
Breaking News: Virginia under state of emergency as Isabel churns up the coast 04:12 PM EDT on Monday, September 15, 2003 Associated Press RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Gov. Mark R. Warner declared a state of emergency in Virginia on Monday to brace the state for Hurricane Isabel, which was on course to smash into the [...]
Since I’ve been able to get Tink to blog, and of course Pixy Misa provided a home for Roxette Bunny™…. my big push, now, is to get PoloRandy on the blogsphere. I’ve even created what I think is a nifty banner for him: View image He keeps saying things like “let me get moved in [...]
As a safety precaution, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs announced Monday that it will immediately begin evacuating patients from the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Hampton. Officials say because of the facility’s waterside location, it is under severe threat of damage and isolation to traffic should Hurricane Isabel make a direct hit on Hampton [...]
If I should be put off or not. When I was in High School, I had taken an IQ test that rated me at 139. I just took one online at emode.com that puts me at 124. Of course there are many different tests that score differently. If that’s the case, 17 years out of [...]
Ocracoke Island, N.C. ordered evacuated. 60 miles south of Outer Banks, it’s an island that you can only get to by Ferry. Let the preparations and paranoia begin!
Seems Ms. Bunny has had her paws busy packing and making ready. Hoppings of Roxette Bunny: Packing Up My Carrots
I’m going to say it anyway. In the event Isabel threatens, we may be without power and internet, so Tink, Roxette Bunny™ and I won’t be able to post for a while… if it happens.
I receive spam without ever opening it, tons of it every day. Some offer to increase my bust size, some my penis, some to show me what she and her teenage friends did when her parents were home and they all got drunk and found a camcorder. But this one* was one that I was [...]
The worst, with flooding, was Hurricane Floyd when it passed through in 1999. As MsPegasus stated earlier — this weather is mirroring what happened 4 years ago. We had an over-abundance of water, then had the hurricane pass by. Secitons of town were impassible for days, the city of Franklin basically disappeared under the rising [...]
We packed up and left Charleston a year later, in 1980. While I’ve gone through several Hurricanes in Virginia (Gloria in 85, Gilbert in 88, etc) none of them compared to Hugo in 1989. While Hurricane Andrew (circa 93) was far worse in intensity, Hurricane Hugo in 1989 caused death and destruction in Charleston. Our [...]
Was Hurricane David in 1979. I was living in Charleston, SC at the time. Dad was out to sea, Mom and I were in our little one story brick rancher. We decided to weather it out rather than evacuate. We lost power about 4 hours into the storm, but still had phone service. The storms [...]
Before I get to the seriousness of the hurricane postings today, let me take a moment to ask where the HELL Pat Robertson is? Every time we’ve had a hurricane threaten this area, what happens? He makes an @$$ of himself by saying he’s “praying the hurricane away”. Maybe he caught word that he doesn’t [...]
I feel, with Hurricane Isabel looking like it’s going to hit us, that today would be a good day for me to recall the various hurricanes that I have lived through (between Charleston and here, there have been a number of them). For those who have never been through a hurricane, imagine a tornado with [...]
