Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we're born
Into this world we're thrown
like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan
Riders on the storm.

Just means more rain over a larger area and less wind damage.  Water's going inland.  Coastal areas won't crest until next week.

The best way to ride out a storm is to find someone (or some people) to fornicate with.

/ fornication leads to fisting which leads to flowers
// FORNICATE!

Ah, so that's the blocking high that's going to be responsible for epic flooding, figures it would be that douche.

Huge storm, slow moving.  Convection blowing up on the western side which might indiciate strengthening.  This is going to be pretty bad.

It really was raining pretty hard here about 15?minutes ago. Could be a long night.

WRAL is saying about 150k without power, and it hasn't even made landfall yet.

At least when I walked outside earlier, it had cooled off a little and there was a decent breeze.

This week the weather was like having Swamp Thing sit on your face.

Even worse. It was a reverse vampire and it was fornicating with itself.

I just saw Florence + The Machine and Saint Vincent in concert the other night, so my brain has been in, "wait, what did she do?"

Well, let's hope they have lots of bottled water and MREs, so there won't be any...Hunger.

I dunno why, but I got curious about the NOAA ditty in the Original Twitter post.  Curiosity led me to this article about the singer and his inspiration for the song:

/I might send the video to my sister, who once decided to drive through a flood.  She had to be rescued in a canoe.
//The next day a picture of her being rescued appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer.  She must have been sent a dozen copies of that picture over the years

as much as I really don't likeDragonforce, this album sounds similar for a reason. It's a story, and it culminates in this amazing song/mashup of the album.
