We here at the main GoD headquarters in the New York City “Zone C” area are bracing for Hurricane Irene, which is set to hit tomorrow (Sunday) morning. As we get ready to shut down for the night, the seriously heavy rains and winds have already begun, so if things are quiet here at GeeksofDoom.com tomorrow, chances are either the power/internet went out and/or we’re busy bailing water.
In the meantime, here’s some gems I learned from the stellar round-the-clock local news coverage of Hurricane Irene:
– Sheepshead Bay is a bay, that’s how it got it’s name.
– Do not try to stand outside in the hurricane, even though you see the news reporters doing it [they are immune to the affects of harsh weather].
– Hurricanes are bad.
– The surf is getting frothier and frothier.
– Water is wet.
– We’re screwed.
