The Hurricane [Not To Be Confused With The Wind And Rain Machine]

Run For Your Bloody Lives!

That's right people, this one is in honor of Hurricane Irene and like Agent Smith, she's powerful, relentless and she's coming.

You wouldn't like her when she's angry so be ready.

Take cover friends, batten down the hatches or do some much needed crying in the rain.

Stock up on good liquor, non-perishables and several hot women. All races welcome.

Put away items that can quickly pass for deadly throwing stars in the wind and harm your children.

Get stuck with a hot chick if possible, particularly one with a wet t-shirt.

If all goes well, power will be back in a few days. Just in case, armed women could come in handy to prevent looting.

Yes, the storm, she is a-coming!

And whatever you do, if things get real bad, like The-Chariot-taking-in-water-on-the-ocean BAD, don't go outside. You're no Mark Goddard even if you think you are. Good luck everyone. God speed.

Wonderful amalgam of screencaps, SFF. Hopefully, you all on the east coast will come through it intact. Be safe, my friend.

By all I read, 'The Ocean State' only suffered "a glancing blow". True enough?

I'm not sure who wrote it, but honestly, there are thousands here that would pop him/her in the face.

I guess you could call it a case of not believing everything you read.

Although downgraded from a cat 1 to a tropical storm, this had to be one of the fiercest tropical storms I've ever seen.

The upper gusts were definitely ranging 70-100, because we have roads blocked and trees down everywhere. Hundreds of thousands have been without power. House and car damages. So, yeah, a "glancing blow" is probably what the writer deserves. Ha.

I've been without power since 7:00 am Sunday. It went down and down hard. I looked out the window during the storm and a massive oak landed next to my neighbor's home. They were real lucky.

But, all things considered, personally, we came out good and everyone was aok. Thank God!

Sorry to hear it. Glad you and yours came out okay. Take care.

I love your image gallery in this post. You are so good at combining imagery with humor.'s a gift.

And to have humor about a situation like a hurricane is a good thing too. Because, truly, that's the only way to face such crises.

Finally, I'm glad to know you are okay, and that the family is okay as well!

All my best,

Thank you. Well, thanks for the blushingly kind words. I'm glad you appreciate my efforts even if they don't always succeed.

Yes, I agree, a little humor goes a long way. It has been an impressive week of recovery throughout the region.

I had it good all things considered and I'm fortunate. Thanks for the thoughts my friend.
