At the risk of sounding totally ridiculous if Hurricane Hanna slams into us on Friday…
I know we have to be prepared. I know we have to be aware. But as I go about my regular business today, I have had about ten people “worry” about making evacution plans this week. Right now the projected path is anywhere from Florida to New York.
Perhaps I am just a weathered Islander, having lived here for 16 Septembers, all of them peppered with the “panic” of Hurricane Warnings. It wears me out.
Can we just not “panic” until we are better informed? I mean, really. I have ALOT of work to do today. I mean, by all means, panic if you want to. But if we should happen to meet today, let’s talk about something else.
