Hurricane Earl Update: This just in. Two ominous raindrops, possibly merging to form one large drop just fell through the atmosphere and landed on my front porch. There were no reported injuries. It has been further reported that more raindrops have been spotted and seem to be headed in a Northeasterly direction toward the heavily populated area of town. The forecast of just one raindrop has proved to be incorrect, but we all know how difficult it is to accurately predict these monsters.
A report just in has been verified by several sources that a leaf dropped from a small tree recently planted in my back yard; however, it cannot be determined at this point in time if the leaf was swept up in the storm’s wind gust of .005 mph, or if a garden pest gnawed it from its host branch.
Two other instances of hurricane related issues have been reported. A Mr. Cornfield was attended to by EMTs while preparing for Hurricane Earl. He took a nasty tumble from a ladder while attempting to board up a window. He refused transport to the hospital, however, as they do not serve beer. In an unrelated incident, a couple “riding it out” at a nearby beach became ill after ingesting bad salsa purchased at a local grocery store. The store had no comment except to say the product should not have been inhaled with tequila shooters.
