The Hurricane

Was just in on a meeting about the expected path of the storm barreling down on the MidAtlantic. It's slowing down, and it's going to be a bear. The boss is worried about ice-storm-damaged trees going down all over Virginia and the MidAtlantic. They're canceling meetings in Maryland on Thursday - that's when they expect landfall. Most likely landfall is going to be in the Outer Banks, and it may go skimming north along the coast. Our customers down in the Eastern Shore are almost certain to get plastered, unless things go really right and it drives deep inland. A megalopolis hit is very unlikely, but within the realm of possibility. Christ - poor New York, if that happens.

Ben (chromal) has been going on about this storm for the last week or so. I hadn't paid much attention because hey, we're way the hell north. Who worries about hurricanes above the 40th Parallel?
