This IS full media hype, over blown to the max. Strike fear into the hearts of the quivering masses, and they will rush to WallyWorld and SPEND all
their money on batteries, candles, generators, etc. I'm sure sales of these type of items have skyrocketed due to all the hype. WalMart makes
billions, I'm sure insurance companies are posting record volumes right now as well.
This is a garden variety Category One hurricane, which is 500 miles out in the ocean, and most likely will spin off out to sea. Just like ALL THE
OTHER ONES THIS YEAR DID. Having been through over twenty hurricanes, including Andrew in Miami and Wilma in Cancun, the two strongest ever recorded,
and seven times on board boats,I think I'm qualified to say this is much ado over nothing. First hurricane that has a slight possibility of making
landfall this year. You might see some wind and lots of rain. Some tree branches on the road. Maybe an entire tree will even fall. Oh no. If you
are not a shrimper or fisherman you will be fine.
Anyone more than a few blocks from the ocean has NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT. Unless, of course, you live in an entire city that is below sea level, and
the government had stopped all maintenance on levees years ago, so that they were in well known bad condition. Oh, wait.
And the comment about the rich white guys? Uh, right on the MONEY. New England is where all the rich people live, I know because I grew up there,
and you better believe they will get far better and quicker response to anything. Like they always do. Maybe you've never noticed that rich
neighborhoods somehow have better streets, and get the snow plowed first and better in winter storms?
