Irene is now in the South-Eastern tip of Virginia, and is expected to stay for just over 21 hours, or thereabouts. the barometer is starting to drop. it's now at 1009 MB here. And the heat is hanging around 80 sticky degrees.
and when they said it's huge, they were right. from the looks of the radar everything from the Blue Ridge Mts. on East to the far side of New Jersey will be getting part of this hurricane.
can you imagine that!
