Storm of the Century of the Week Watch - Tropical Edition

No doubt the LMC is getting ready to top off the ol' generator at the vast yet secure compound known as Fort LMC, because here comes Earl:

Tuesday into Wednesday, Earl is expected to be a major hurricane curving more to the northwest into the open waters of the southwestern Atlantic Ocean. The arrival of a new storm system should then turn Earl more to the northeast later in the week.

That turn should spare the United States a direct hit from Earl. However, the Hurricane Center is concerned that Earl will still pass dangerously close to the East Coast.

North Carolina's Outer Banks and Massachusetts' Cape Cod are at greatest risk for being grazed by Hurricane Earl's wind and rain late this week. The hurricane may then threaten Nova Scotia and Newfoundland next weekend.

It should be stressed that the exact track of Hurricane Earl for late this week is far from etched in stone.

Doesn't look like Orgle Manor will get much of anything out of it. A shame. The last one to come through our neck of teh woods was Isabel in 2003, and while being without power (read A/C) for a week after was not much fun, the storm itself was kinda exciting.

Can't help but think of this:

I ran the generator over the weekend, emptied the tank, and will restock on new fuel this week and other supplies tomorrow or Wednesday, depending on Earl's track. I have a bad feeling about this one . . .
