What I have to look forward to this weekend:
Don't worry, mom, I have an emergency kit ready,
and I know better than to drive or walk around in a "super typhoon."
This is all anyone can talk about today (myself included), but it's hard to feel any real concern when every other typhoon warning has brought little more than a heavy tropical rain. Logically, I hope that this typhoon is similarly anti-climactic, but there's a twisted little part of me (the same part in every person who cranes his/her neck to catch a glimpse of disaster) that hopes the hype isn't for nothing this time.
Besides, I'm from Idaho. I like power outages.
