You know? The hurricane.


MIAMI (Aug. 12) - Tropical Storm Irene was expected to intensify Friday and possibly reach hurricane strength as it approached the U.S. East Coast, forecasters said.


Irene's potential threat to land was still uncertain, as its path had shifted east, according to forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Forecasters said the storm could strike the coast anywhere from South Carolina to New Jersey.

Irene's top sustained winds increased to about 60 mph, and forecasters said conditions appeared favorable for the storm to strengthen. Hurricanes sustain winds of at least 74 mph.

At 5 a.m. EDT, the storm's center was located about 325 miles south of Bermuda and about 795 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.


It was moving northwest near 15 mph, though it was expected to slow down, forecasters said.

Irene broke records Sunday when it became the earliest ninth named storm in the Atlantic hurricane season, which began June 1 and ends Nov. 30. Typically, there are only two named storms by this time in the season.

Irene weakened into a tropical depression Monday, but regained tropical storm strength Wednesday.

Aw man, I hope it hurries up, then I'll have another excuse not to cut my grass this weekend (it rained last weekend, neighbors are getting ready to lynch me).

"fr00t cake"?

Why would you want to insult me for my comment?

Although Durrant lived, he suffered greatly. I am pretty sure the enthusiasm he had when he uttered that phrase was dampened by his torture.
