My husband's boss and his family can't leave the Dominican Republic right now because of Irene. And their hotel more than doubled the price of a room now that they're stuck.

I was hoping for a little rain. Will we get any from the outer bands?

Boy, I an sure happy that that storm moved away. What a relief.

Considering its current track, my guess is that we don't get much, if any rain from it at all. This track path often ends up spinning dry air from up north down on us instead, and in doing so disrupting the normal sea-breeze storm cycle.

Hopefully this one keeps on turning east and out to sea so it won't hit anyone. It's current path would give Virginia an earthquake and hurricane in a single week. Talk about a double whammy!

Looks like it could slice Cape Cod, aka "The Cod," in two! They'll be boarding up over the weekend for sure (pending no change in current track.)
