It hit me today, anticipating Hurricane Irene's approach is just like the anticipation of a long awaited book (without the risk of lives lost of course); you wait, and wait, and wait...and listen to all the hype, and then wonder if the end event (or book) will be all it's been hyped to be. Sometimes the books deliver, and sometimes they fall short. Will Irene deliver the projected punch? Or fall short?
I guess we'll find out tomorrow night.
I live in the projected path of where Irene will hit, but luckily not in any of the low lying areas that are requiring evacuation. I'm stocked-up and ready to weather the storm. Let's see how it all plays out. I'll let you know what happens next week.
Be safe everyone!
