this hurricane is a lot more wet and hurricane-y than the last one.
it's windy, and raining so hard i can't really see outside, and the electricity keeps going in and out.
i am most pleased.
sadly, the electricity fluctuations are causing the filter on my aquarium to sporatically turn on and off, which is scaring spak to death.
ah, and i just heard my first ambulance of the day.
yep! i'm in atlanta.
we're under a flash flood warning right now. it's pretty fun.
i'm originally from south ga, so i'm used to getting 4-5 hurricanes a year. i think it's hilarious when all the people up here freak out about them. if you're more than 60 miles from the coast, you won't get shit but a little wind and some rain.
Yea, I used to live near Columbus when I was a kid. If it got real windy everyone was like, "Oh, it's just another hurricane." and would proceed to continue doing whatever they were doing. Atlanta was funny though. If, for some reason, a snowflake managed to touch the ground, they'd shut everything down and act like it was the end of the world.
That's hilarious! I don't consider it 'cold' outside until it gets below 50 F. The only time I ever stayed out of school due to the weather was when they made it optional to attend one day (they didn't actually cancel) because it was about -30 F outside. But that's really not too bad. Once it drops below -20 F it all feels the same.
Don't worry, they won't. I used to work in Prudhoe Bay, located on the lovely (read: flat, white, and boring) Arctic Ocean coast, doing seismic surveying. It totally sucked. The temperature was usually between -50 F and -40 F. If it got above -40 F then everyone would sing, "We're having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave.." in the morning. And, working outside, it made trying to take a leak a very complicated and rushed procedure. Not that you wanted to know that.
