I don't know if you two have been following the news, but Hurricane Irene is gonna head up the east coast of the United States, and it's gonna be a Category 2 when it comes up to New England.
The link above will take you to wpri.com, the main source of news and weather in Rhode Island and across New England. I live in Southern Massachusetts, a boat ride away from Martha's Vineyard.
The Hurricane is expected to give: Storm surges, power outages, flooding, hurricane force winds, etc. So depending on where Hurricane Irene is falling, I'm still gonna feel it. Meterologists say the worst place to be is to the right of the storm, and I'm smacked dabbed in the middle of the right side.
So if we do end up losing power or evacuating the city, I don't know when I'll be able to get on. My dad is assuring me that because my house is on a hill, the only place water will be going is my basement so that's a pretty good thing to hear.
Irene is expected to make landfall on Sunday, but we'll be feeling the affect of the storm at arounf 2pn, about an hour or so away from it's arrival tine in around Pensylvania (or something)
Massachusetts has declared a State of Emergency and my area is under a Hurricane Warning and Flood watch. Click Here to Follow My Twitter I'll be updating my Twitter all day on Sunday from my phone.
