hurricane Irene

On its current forecast path, Irene would spread destructive hurricane-force winds (gusts between 80 to 100 mph) across the Delmarva coast, eastern New Jersey, New York City, western Long Island and southwestern New England.

Looks to me like lots of tree cleanup work coming up.

Heck my dad in Massachusetts is still complaining about the ice storm from 3 years ago. I'll never hear the end of it if Irene hits him.
I think he is still cleaning up from the ice storm.

nothing like a hurricane drenching to dampen interest in sprinkler installations

We've now entered DEFCOM 1.
As I was listening to local radio, why does everyone wait until the day before landfall to buy a genreator? Sounds like everyone buys a generator for every hurricane threat. People spend loads of money when they panic buy.

Why can't people panic buy an irrigation system?

Now's a great time to go. You'll be the only one in town and have the beaches all to yourself. Don't forget your muck boots.
