With Hurricane Irene heading into to our area this weekend, I was thinking about Manhattan. Further south and in New Jersey they are planning to evacuate the barrier islands.
What’s Manhattan, other a barrier island? How do you evacuate that?
90% or I’m sure more don’t have cars. The subways don’t go to far off island. How does that work?
The estimation of current course and timing of Irene has it will arriving at a normal high-high tide, due to the new moon. Given the storm surge and the rain flowing into the Hudson, it can’t be good with a direct hit on Hudson river basin.
Irene goodnight, Irene goodnight
Goodnight Irene, good night Irene
I’ll get you in my dreams
Sometimes I lives in the country
Sometimes I lives in town
Sometimes I have a great notion
To jump into the river and drown
I loves Irene, God knows I do
Loves her till the sea runs dry
If Irene turns her back on me
I’m gonna take morphine and die
