I miss hurricane season -- this would have been a birthday one for me, too, were I still living in the area in the path of destruction.

There is nowt more strange than going outside as the eye of the storm passes directly overhead. I've had the chance to experience it several times.


Speaking of which, there's a tiny cake on my profile.

We spent a few days dead in the path. Disappointed to have this veer in the forecast.  Just started getting the proper hurricaney feel of heat and humidity  outdoors

It's "G" next (Isn't it? After "F" for Florence?). If it's possible to nominate, I'd like to nominate "Glynn", which is about the only nice-sounding name beginning with "G".

I wish it was Hurricane Gary next. Then Hurricane Hurricane.

There's an even bigger one threatening the Philippines but your MSM won't comment on that.

After a few days of pre-Hurricane panic, and fights in Wal-Mart over bread and water, Florence has decided to give Virginia a miss (almost uncannily so, as the latest predictions have it bending right round us, and then up through West Virginia into Ohio and PA, like a beautifully flighted Pirlo corner). I'm quite glad not to have to bring my chilli plants indoors, tbh.

I did think of you, Dex, as a fellow Mid-Atlantic region resident, but I guess it's skipping you guys, too?

The first of those wishes might (almost) come true:



(Though the naming system for tropical storms like Florence is slightly different.)

You guys have my best wishes in the face of the storm, as a fellow someone who spent her first 45 years in the mid-Atlantic (mostly in DE, but a spell in Charlottesville then a ghastly 8 years in Prince Edward County before moving back up to DE).

I don't remember any storm that big, yikes (although my parents would rattle on about Hazel whenever a new hurricane was blowing up the eastern seaboard).

It got a mention on the Radio 4 7pm news bulletin this evening. Very slightly shorter shrift than the USA one, and about two stories later.

To be honest there is weather straight from the circles of hell almost every week in asia. Just a part of life.

The thing that struck me about Hong Kong when I was out there was the sheer amount of posh upper class English twenty somethings mooching about.
