Hurricane Earl news from Tattoo Jim

I've had several requests from folks wondering how Tattoo Jim is doing seeing as Earl s supposed to wreak death and destruction on the Outer Banks.
In his own words:

Hey Ken
Everything's o.k. here at Kitty Hawk... the center of Earl is, just now, about 105 miles off the coast, probably about 15 miles south of me... wind gusts up to about 60 m.p.h. and raining like a motherfucker!!! Shit woke me up at about 1:30 this morning... I do need my beauty sleep you know! Now that sunrise is here, I might just stick my face outside... my neighbor put a blue tarp over his car... the windows don't roll up... so I'm curious as to how much tarp is left... or I might just say "fuck it" and fix some breakfast... sausage gravy and biscuits sounds good right about now...
HAHAHAHAHA! The local news just said that the seagulls are flying side ways!!! Now that's fucking funny!!
Later man!
Tattoo Jim

YAY, TJ! Glad to read you are safe and sound in the midst of Earl.

That idiot weather reader Al Roker is standing out in the water off some beach near you in the midst of the hurricane. He said, "This is sand blown wind."

WTF is sand blown wind? I keep waiting for a rogue wave to suck him out to sea.

Enjoy that breakfast, TJ!

Sand blown wind is... if you were to put a soda can into the sand on the beach, walk away about 50 yards, turn around and come back, you wouldn't be able to see what kind of soda can it was... it's like walking in a sand blaster... shit blows sideways and stings like hell!

Gotta say... Earl wasn't much more than a big rain storm... nor'easters are worse than this!
