We’ll Pack a Lunch
We’d offer a Carolina Hurricanes theme, but (a) hockey’s still a month off, and (b) I’m still bent about them moving the Whalers out of Hartford. So it’s a Dixie Chicks reference. Deal. Anyway, the 2300 EDT advisory from the one, the only National Hurricane Center… Earl’s packing heat on the order of 140 mph, with hurricane force winds extending about 60 knots out from the eye and pressure at 27.52″. Best guess is glancing blow at the Outer Banks, then a direct hit for Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and eventually Nova Scotia. (Because those bastards in Nova Scotia really had it coming, that’s why.) Evacuations in N.C. to elevate from “if it’s not too much trouble” to “get the FUCK off the island” by tomorrow a.m.
