Hurricane Irene's Latest Path Confirms God Hates Northeast More Than Florida
It appears Florida will avoid a direct hit from Irene (which means we will not get to make any Me, Myself & Irene jokes) and will skirt our shores. But expect some rain and possibly winds beginning late today and intensifying Thursday. The good news, though, is that the system's western side is much weaker than its eastern half.
Instead, the storm has set its sights on North Carolina, or at least that's what the latest NOAA predictions say:
Not that we should be gloating. The storm has the potential to cause some serious damage. Irene could hit the Carolinas as a Category 3 storm. It would be the most powerful storm to hit America since Wilma ransacked Florida in 2005.
