Normally I would welcome the Hurricanes into town for a matchup (and for a beat down) but this isn’t a hockey team; it’s a force of nature. Much of the entire Eastern seaboard will be under extreme conditions as Hurricane Irene (such a non-threatening name) makes her way up the coast.
Veterans of such bold predictions have already come out of the woodwork, proclaiming we’ll get nothing more than a few droplets of rain and severe disappointment from all the hype given. A word of advice: this is legitimate so take it seriously. Yes, hurricanes don’t have a history of making landfall around here. However, the conditions are in order and your precautions should be as well.
