  • So we had this storm last night....

    ... and it appears that I now live in a disaster area! Check it:

    story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20040831/ap_on_re_us/tropical_weather&cid=519&ncid=716


    That pizza joint, in the 4th paragraph, is about 3 blocks from where I live. It was amazing last night. I saw walls of water rushing through downtown and cars on top of each other. Water was literally covering up stop signs, that's how high it was. One of my roommates and I watched the firemen put in pontoon rafts (you know, like the SEALs have) in the middle of the street! Man, I can't wait to see some aerial photos of this.


    Oh, and I still have to go to school today.

    And it looks like there's another hurricane coming your way...

      I know, riiiiiiight. Hooray nature.

      I swear, since I came back to school in Richmond, we've had a hurricane, a tornado the day after said hurricane, a massive fire, an earthquake, last night's storm (which included torandos) and now another hurricane? Is the cycle starting over?

        Wow - sounds like you need to build a giant weather-proof bubble around Richmond!

          The only thing we missed is a blizzard. C'mon blizzard!


          (and yes, I could go back and edit my post so it says 'tornados' instead of 'torandos' but really. Torandos is funny. Just say it.)

                I just found out that 3 of my classmates had to be evacuated from their buildings last night. The worst part: they went back to their apts today and all the cars that were in the parking lot are gone. At this point they don't know where they are. Man, pancaked up.

                    You should build an arc, but fill it up with woman of varying cupsizes. The animals will still be marching two by two.

                    Match in the gas tank, boom boom.

                          Yeah, I was here for Andrew. I live in Broward County (where Ft. Lauderdale is), and the storm was projected to come right for us. We boarded up and everything, but at the last minute Andrew turned south and hit Dade County (Miami). The damage for us wasn't bad at all, but many parts of Miami, namely Homestead and Kendall got creamed.

                          Hurricane Frances is scaring the crap out of me right now. I'm checkint the updates constantly. It's up to a category 4 with open water ahead of it, assuming it doesn't turn south and get slowed down by Cuba.
