Come on Irene!

Hurricane Irene is heading up the East coast and supposedly Boston is in the direct path. Its a big hurricane, was a Category 3 over the Bahamas, is now a category 2 but is still significant enough to cause mandatory evacuation orders to be issued at various places up the coast. The people on the Weather Channel are all excited and its hard to tell whether this is serious or just something to ensure they get good viewing figures. Do I board up my windows? Do I stock up with water and buy a backup generator? Do I start looking for somewhere to evacuate to? Should I pack my suitcase? Or shall I just have an extra glass or two of wine and continue to watch the Weather Channel as the fun unfolds. Hmm....Cheers!
