Hurricane Irene open thread
Written by Robert Niles
Hurricane Irene missed Florida, but it's closed several theme parks for the weekend, including Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Kings Dominion and Six Flags Great Adventure.Tweet
With luck, the storm will keep bearing east and its worst winds and storm surges will miss populated areas. Until then, though, East Coast readers, please feel free to comment with any eyewitness reports, or just to kill time while you're using the WiFi in whatever hotel room you've evacuated to.
Out here in the west, we'll continue baking in the 100+ heat we're expecting again this weekend.
Whatever happens, let's hope that the outcome is better than this example of a theme park that closed for an impending hurricane.
Stay safe, everyone.
