Knowledge Anyone? Or sometimes its just my opinion or exploration on topics like religion, philosiphy, and current events. I was - and still am - the kid in class who always raised their hand asking question after question, usually ending up taking the teacher on such a far tangent that she forgot what her original lesson was even about! So come along on this winding road with me and we can dig for knowledge together!

Keeping an EYE on IRENE
Hurricane Irene, biggest in Philly since the 1970s
Hurricane Irene closes down East Coast
Hurricane Irene is on her way! I have been fortunate to not experience any natural diasters in all of my twenty seven years on this earth. All we've heard for the past three days was IRENE IRENE IRENE. Hurricane Irene is the biggest storm to hit the Eastern seaboard in fifty years. It's mere size is dauting, covering a sqare milage comparible to the continent of Europe. Now there are tonados stirring and floods from North Carolina on up the East Coast. I was excited at first. But I must admit my giddiness has turned into nervousnes. It is only a category 1 storm, so many of us did not take it seriously. But when the entire Jersey Coast is on a Mandatory evacuation and many parts of Lower Manhattan are evacuated for the first time in history, I start to worry.
