Hurricane Earl

by on Sep.01, 2010, under Life, News

The forecast for Hurricane Earl is still pretty threatening for the East Coast. The people on North Carolina’s Atlantic coast and Barrier Islands are going to be evacuated. That is always a huge problem for the people who live there. Evacuation means boarding up your house, loading up the car with as much valuable stuff as you can squeeze in, and heading west in miles of backed up traffic to try to get to higher ground.

The hurricane has sustained winds of 135 mph already and the forecast says the winds could easily reach over 150 mph when it hit the North Carolina coast. My heart goes out to the people who live in its path.

End of Summer

by on Aug.30, 2010, under Fun Stuff, Life, News

Cannot believe that summer is about to be over. The unofficial end of summer is always Labor Day weekend. After Labor Day, all kids are back in school, the East Coast beaches switch to off season rates, and the weather takes a turn for the chill.

This Labor Day weekend is looking pretty risky for people who want one last weekend at the beach. Hurricane Earl is headed north from the Caribbean and could easily make landfall anywhere from North Caroline to Virginia or any state further north all the way to Maine.

Really hope that this hurricane bounces off the coast and heads out to sea without causing much damage. Hurricane season is still young -we’ve only gotten 6 names storms so far this year.
