The storm isnt going to be anywhere near us. We get worse weather in a severe thunderstorm then when Irene is going to come through. Shes going east by a long ways. I lived up in Jacksonville when Isabel and Ophelia were issues and even then it was a joke. Reality is I think the continuing to hype the storm around here is nothing but sensationalism. Why spend money on supplies you dont need and arent likely to need when money is tight already for many of us is a dis-service at best. But then again IM sure the stores love the panic the newsmedia is trying to force down peoples throats. Now if you lived up near OBX you might have something to worry about but last time I checked were all here in SE NC not in Dare, Hyde, Tyrell.
