Ophelia taunts eastern coast

Hovering off the eastern seaboard of the US, with constantly changing extremes, Ophelia, which shift back and from between being a hurricane and a tropical storm, seems to want to tease the residents on the nearby shores.

MSNBC reports...

With the storm’s path uncertain, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford called for a voluntary evacuation Monday of oceanfront and riverside areas in his state’s northeastern corner.

“This is a serious storm that’s got the potential to do a lot of damage and put lives in jeopardy if we don’t take it seriously,” Sanford said.

In North Carolina, Gov. Mike Easley on Sunday ordered 200 National Guard soldiers to report to staging centers in the eastern part of the state. The governor also ordered a mandatory evacuation of nonresidents from fragile Ocracoke Island on the Outer Banks, reachable only by ferry.

Well, whatever happens, we can be assured that hordes of Democrat activists are, this very minute, devising ways of blaming it on Bush.

Oh, I also found a house on South Carolina that's probably not all that worried about Ophelia, any more than this house was all that worried about Katrina (or Ivan before that or Dennis before that). If I ever get rich enough to build my own home, I've always thought it'd be cool to build one like that.
