Hurricane Irene: Cone of Uncertainty, Hurricane Tracker, Storm Surge

I feel compelled to air some thoughts about the current hurricane threat, and to throw in some useful links. I'm sure anybody in the path of Hurricane Irene knows  where to go for the latest satellite, radar and projections. I'm hoping they are also giving a great deal of thought to a Storm Plan, in case things get rough. 

Of interest with Hurricane Irene are the Northeast States, if only for their dense populations. As with NOAA's SPC and the deadly Missouri-Alabama-Tennessee tornado outbreak in April this year, the NOAA National Hurricane Center has been pretty sure about this particular storm's trajectory now for the past 3 days. Perhaps that's the nature of the East Coast storms, as opposed to those in the Gulf of Mexico. It seems to be clear to those monitoring the tropics by the time a storm has approached the Bahamas, as to whether it's going to head out to sea, or make for the US coast.

K2 Radical 90 or 100 or Other Inline Skates, Plus Wheel Size and Frame Placement Tips, Blisters, Pain, Pronation, Supination

Someone on a semi-private internet email list (is there such a thing?) asked a question I thought was well-asked, and I wanted to answer it for them, and for everyone out there who might be thinking about inline skating but doesn't know what to think about all the choices.

Here are the main points of the question, or the ones I wanted to address...

A2A 2007 - My Toes are Still Bruised

Deciding to do A2A was a very last minute decision. I kept hitting the website, read numerous stories and had a lot of friends tell me how hard it was! The more everyone told me how difficult it was, the more I wanted to do it.

Joey Cheek Honored at 14th Annual Iba Awards

It's nice to see the honors still coming for local skater guy Joey Cheek, and that his good works continue. Looks like this award was received on June 4 in Tulsa, OK, and was presented by the Rotary Club of Tulsa in memory of the legendary Oklahoma State basketball coach Henry P. Iba.

Philly '06: Best Skate Save I've Ever Seen and Done!

The Saturday evening excursion of the 2006 Philly Freedom Skate had several skaters' lives flashing before their eyes! One stretch of the route back in to town from the Merion Station, NW of Philly, had those of us at the 'front of the pack' flying full-speed into a hairpin-bend like downhill.
