Well despite my efforts to spread the word that there is no such thing as hurricanes in the Northeast, (the idea is just a scam cooked up by Jim Cantore, and purported by the unbalanced rants of Stephanie Abrams), it seems we are doing this whole hurricane thing. So be it.
Now many of you are probably busy storing bottled water and batteries, and if disaster preparedness is your jam, than you go with that. I’ve decided to use this time a little more productively. I’m creating a Twitter hashtag that I’m hoping will trend: #hurricrazy : ie “if you ___ than you might be #hurricrazy.” I would fill in the ___ , but every example I can think of actually describes one or more of my parents. I don’t want to be disrespectful, I mean they did keep me alive during Hurricane Gloria. #survivors #hurricrazy
