yeah the ocean is already up and kicking.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

When it will be, what happened four years ago with Floyd will be a minor accident. This is category 5 hurricane with catastrophic destruction potential.

As they say, it is already certain that someon between NJ and NC is going to ge hit badly. It's question of whom. At the moment the most likely hit point seems to be between Richmond,Va and Washington, DC. Will happen around Friday.
I would not mind it being NJ - Floyd was so much fun and something to remember.

It won't be that funny if it hits there. If it hits a major metropolitan area, consider us having another September,11 in terms of damage.

This is not joke. Go to home page of any US news agency - CNN, CBS, anything. This is the breaking news of the day, not anything else, not even Williams shooting.

i love hurricanes, but its very true NJ rarely gets hit with anything. itd be pretty devastating for the jersey shore to get the worst of the storm.

i would definitely mind it being jersey since i live right on the shore and most of us just arent used to ANY kind of natural disaster besides the occasional weak nor'eastern. were going to have some flooding either way it looks, fromthe size and the intensity of the storm, regardless of where it hits.

floyd was lots of fun when it happened... the ocean was just AMAZING.

I think Mase was being sarcastic. I lived in southern Florida for years and have survived many hurricanes enough to know that they are not a joke. I'm sure that many other hurricane survivors feel the same way. In addition, I have friends and family who live in these areas, so I am worried about their safety.

BTW, Hurricane Irene just got replaced by a story on Secretary of State Powell stating that Iraq is still a major terrorist threat. In today's climate, no story ever stays in the public's conscience for too long.

I just went to the beach on Friday and I couldn't believe how big the waves were. I live in Central Florida so I usually don't get affected but a few years ago we actually had to board up sliding glass doors and windows of my apartment and my employer let us all go home.

It's not on MSNBC, Fox News or Yahoo. You're right. A hurricane of this magnitude should be taken very seriously. Fortunately, Isabel has experienced a dip from her category 5 standing and may continue to weaken as it heads for shore. As of 11:00 a.m. this morning, Isabel was still 370 miles from the coast, so there is a chance that she may substantially weaken before reaching landfall.

I saw that. I'm hoping that Isabel will weaken before making landfall. Since she was 370 miles off the coast this morning, there is a good chance of that happening.
