    It's funny you said that - my significant other shares the same name as the storm.

    I’m not sure why reporters put themselves in danger reporting bad weather.
    If everyone is supposed to evacuate why do they stand in 2 feet of water and try not to get blown away?

    Can’t they go up into a high rise and zoom in or something safer?

    Earthquakes don’t bother me but a hurricane or tornado sure would scare the heck out of me!

    Somebody probably drags them inside when the sustained tropical storm force winds set in. That's when the first responders, the "boots on the ground," get called back in. Emergency personnel don't go out again until the winds die down below that threshold.

    As much as I like the remodel jobs we are doing around here I’m tired of contractors in my house!
    Right now I’m in my sons room hanging out.
    My poor dogs have too stay outside, my cat is locked in a room and the little Chihuahua is with me because the front door has to stay open so the workers don’t scratch it up.
    This guy comes and goes or shows up 3 and works 2 hours.
    I’m over it!! His work is great but it’s slow!

    I know you've done your daughter's room and the fireplace. What else is being done?

    It feels more immediate and makes better television. Reporters’ lives are dirt-cheap. (Speaking as a journalism graduate.)
