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.

I didn't know you're down that way. Good luck to you.

(I kind of like storms too. Lots of power in the air.)

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.

it snowed about half an inch earlier this year and every store was sold out of heaters and soup and blankets and bottled water. on top of every school being closed.

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.

50f is the lower end of my "comforable temperature" range. i can't even imagine being in the negatives. the coldest i've been in is 9 degrees, and i thought my nipples would crystalize and fall off.

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.
