    When I was like 12 or so I was in a Hurricane in Boston. It was the end of the summer and my friend and I didn't want to go back to school, so we were hoping for massive devastation. Fortunately for the people of Massachusetts, but unfortunately for us, the storm didn't end up being very bad at all. We watched most of it through the giant picture window in my buddy's hotel room on like the 30th floor. safety first after all.

    sorry, I don't have any hurricane stories more interesting than that one.

    back in my fishing days, i used to sail with an old crew, once we were out and three smaller storms collide over us, the storm it created was huge, its was so supreme, so exact, it was enough to cap size our boat and most the crew drowned. in fact i think we all drowned. i cant remember,

    Back in 69... i think it was the summer. I has just bought my own first real 6 string. My previous was homemade... plastic hub cap 2x4 + fishing wire... so it was about time i got a new one. Anyway... i digress. So when i got it i played it till my fingers bled. Then on a cold night a storm hit. It felt like a lifetime.I was standing on my mums porch. When my sixstring was pulled from my hand. The storm had taken it. But the next day.... it was found by my friend jimmy at his wedding. That was the best day of my life.

    How do you go about daily cleaning without causing mass devastation in your living room?

    This... especially with the amount of warning they've had for this storm. Stock up on essential supplies... green... k.... mandy.... ching.... red stripe..... and spend the next few days oblivious to everything around you... switching from instense shit chatting to k holes and drunken arguments..... BLISS!

    Yeah I'm just watching it on the news now, I've always wished we had more extreme weather, I think it all started when I see the film twister as a kid

    So far no one I love or myself has been greatly effect by the storm. I Hope New Jersey(Horrible People) will float away to Mexico. Some very weird sneery overhere. Beautiful, yet destructive. I am still lucky. If fact so is a lot of the east coast of the US. Not many fatalities at this point. We where well prepared. Hell, the power went out for only an hour before it came back on.

    what if the gangnam style is actually a giant raindance and we've brought on this hurricane ourselves?
