|Bring it, Bitch!|
As you probably know there is a little thing going on in the Atlantic Ocean. It’s called Hurricane Irene. Irene is a nasty bitch headed straight up the East Coast and will eventually run her bitch ass course somewhere in Canada. Many of you may not know that I live in Maine and Maine is next door neighbors with Canada and therefore this fucking hurricane is going to pass right through the middle of the Pine Tree State. Further, this Irene will pass nearly directly over where I am sitting right now. I do not look forward to this, but being a Texan and all, this hurricane is really not much more than a West Texas Turd Floater.
People all over the Globe read this blog and they may not have experienced such a potentially devastating weather event as a hurricane. I will, therefore, as long as the electricity stays on, try to live blog the passing of Irene as she makes her way over my house. The storm’s arrival (here in Maine) is not due until Sunday afternoon or night, so I have a little time to keep you posted as to what is going on in regards to what’s shakin’. (pun intended)
Here’s a shot of the predicted path of Irene as she slams into the state this weekend:
Now here’s a link to accuweather.com that goes into more detail about Irene and what to expect for the Northeast US and New England, where I live. Augusta is teetering right on the edge of “thank goodness” and ‘oh, shit!” as far as the intensity of the hurricane goes, but I think we’ll be OK since we are the East, or “good” side of the storm.
Believe it or not, I am more worried about the damage to my small garden than I am to our residence. We’ll be OK, the garden, not so much. Oh, well…There’s always next year.

In conclusion I’d like to say…Bring it on, Irene! we ain’t skeered.
UPDATE: Not as bad as we thought? Irene weakens.
UPDATE #2: It’s a dud.
