Some people just don't know when to quit. Or to stop bitching, seriously.

So Irene was not as bad as forseen. Now people want to be upset they were evacuated and NYC was shut down and la-de-dah.

Sure. Next time a 600 mile wide Hurricane comes wandering up your alley, let the government pick their nose and claim it won't be so bad.

When you get Katrina Part Deux don't say shit you little ingrates looking for ways to claim its all 'political' and the 'news made everyone scared'.

Of course they're going to freak you out - it was a freaking big ass storm and we've already seen what it did to places like Ocean City and the like. They wanted you scared so you could GTFO! How dare any of you be upset that for once the government (misguided or not you decided) cared enough about your lazy entitled iPhone humping asses to get you safe.

Turn around reactions like this make me sick. Everyone on my twitter feed was scared yesterday - now they just mad. Better mad than dead.

Sorry for the rant y'all.

We split the difference. I went to higher ground with Caroline and our youngest cat. Peter stayed home and live blogged the storm.

We are fine as is our property but we both knew that it could have gone either way.

I honestly think people should be thankful that it was as mild as it was.

It's like people WANT something bad to happen.

I'm also tired of people who live in hurricane zones mocking everyone for being nervous over it becuase "It's just category one, you silly Northerners!" Yeah, call us when you get one inch of snow and have to close all the schools.

No, Irene wasn't as bad as foreseen. No, it wasn't the worst hurricane I've been through. But shit yeah I was scared and it is SMART to be scared of a HURRICANE.

My part of the city, known for its picturesque tree-filled landscape, now looks like a mini WAR-ZONE. The rain poured and the wind howled and the beautiful ancient trees toppled over power lines, roads, cars and houses. Roads are still closed, thousands are still without power (my complex is one of them), and I am DAMN LUCKY that the huge oak tree in front of our apartment stayed right where it was and didn't come through our living room. The house right beside our complex had two down trees, destroying their back fence and clipping the power line for our parking lot lights, so we have a live wire right out front.

I was the only one of my friends, THE ONLY ONE, who wanted to stay home and weather out the storm and gave it the respect it deserved. But peer pressure had me out dodging trees, back tracking when I came across closed flooded roads, and struggling to keep my car in a straight line when gusts crept up to meet my friends for board games. It was NOT a fun time, and I was so happy to be home when I finally got there. All the trees and flooded roads doubled my normal time.

So my words to all those lovely people in New York and up the coast who only got a little bit of wind and rain? STOP FUCKING COMPLAINING. Hurricanes, even tropical storms, are not a joke and should be taken seriously. So be glad that someone gave you the SENSE to take shelter, even though you feel silly because it missed you.

The hilarious part is that most of the people complaining about our government are the same people who voted them in and will probably vote them in again.
