Does anyone know how bad its gonna be?
Right now they're saying strong cat 3 or weak cat 4 by landfall...so, bad enough...several articles at link below.

Even if it gets downgraded to a tropical storm, it will be nasty. I hate hurricane lead-up days. They're the absolute worst.
Fuck... and I'm coming back home next week. NJ better not get hit.
Well My Grandma is going to New York next week....Oh wait you meant the hurricane my bad.
Awesome I have a party to go to on Saturday at a fancy restaurant that's literally built right on the water. The waves are gonna be crazy!
Of course though I wish everybody good luck and hope they stay safe.
My sister's work is sending her on a business trip to Maryland, about 30 minutes from DC, just in time for the hurricane.
Don't hit Florida...
The people up in the Northeast always believe hurricanes only affects the coastal Southern states. They also believe they are immune to hurricanes.
Irene could be a repeat of the 1938 hurricane or "The Long Island Express" for which it was also named.
I'm in Fairfax, VA (about twenty minutes from DC) working for the next few months. Yay for me. -_-
It's a good thing that Louisiana isn't hitting any major Hurricanes.
I'm in central jersey, the most western part of the area, I hope it wont be too bad
I'm near the coast so I'm sure I'll get some form of battering. Like we need more damn rain. >.<
I think we will just get heavy rain and wind,
The upper east coast is expected to get storm surges. That can be bad. Storm surges pretty much wiped out Biloxi, MS during Katrina.
I live in northern maryland.....this hurricane is expected to do some major damage to the mid-atlantic.
I live in the immediate DC Metropolitan area.. Arlington to be exact, but as far as what the current updates are, places like Ocean City across the Bay Bridge area are expected to get the more heavy stuff. This reminds me of Hurricane Isabel.. anyone remember that one?
That one was nasty. I remember distinctly one house that was divided into two by a felled tree here in VA.
Hurricanes, even when downgraded to tropical storms, are no joke. They're not like nor'easters or bad windy storms.
Isabel stretched into part of Ohio? i never knew that.
I think I am screwed. I am literally a block off the beach in Jersey. Furtunately it is on the Bay end, so maybe I won't be hit as hard.
The thing that sucks is that some termites got into a tree in front of my house like a month or so ago. So I keep thinking that freaking tree is going to come down.
This hurricane is really pissing me off. I have so much shit to do between today and Saturday to get the house ready for it, it's annoying. Just so people prepare themselves, here are some things you may not be prepared for:
- Take in your BBQ grills and secure your propane tanks
- Get rid of all your potted plants
I am taking in my whole patio set.
Anyone doing their windows?
