Hurricane Earl

Maybe not the best thing to do if you are a worrier and a hurricane is coming but I am watching a Channel 4 (UK) special "Katrina Caught on Camera" about hurricane Katrina.

Holy shit. Hurricane Juan was in 2003 was horrible but we didn't get the flooding New Orleans got. Hard to believe that they are STILL cleaning up from it. Some of the scenes just break your heart to watch. I thought Juan was tough until I saw scenes from Katrina.

A lot of people are freaking out over Earl. Massacussetts declared a State of Emergency before the hurricane even reached North Carolina. A storm watch is in effect across the Maritimes in Canada.

As with most hurricanes before they hit, or blow by, it is already losing strength. Some forecasters are saying it will be a tropical storm by the time it reaches the Maritimes. After living through hurricane Juan that doesn't sound too bad.

I just hope it gets rid of some of this damn heat and humidity.
