Hurricane Irene is coming. Here is the report from our state emergency team. Looks like it will officially hit us on Saturday morning, although the rain is already falling heavily here.
Stay tuned for further details. Hurricane Isabal really rocked us in 2003, causing thousands of Fairfax citizens to lose power and water.
(To further complicate matters, our baby daughter born August 3, 2011 is “Ida” and she cries all the time. Coincidence?)
To state the obvious: stay off the roads and avoid unnecessary trips during a storm. One of the lamest side-effects of every earthquake/snowstorm/terrorist attack is thousands of folks rushing home like lemmings at the same time.
