And so it begins. The mega storm has arrived and by all indications we’re in for a real doozy, a storm of historic proportions. I believe it warrants its own category on the left column, “Where I Put Stuff.” We’ll label it The Big Kahuna.
I readily credit HoCoRising for nailing the right name for this storm. Mr Foot called it a Super Kahuna but that didn’t quite feel right. Super Kahuna implies that there will be other storms just like it. I prefer to give a storm it’s own identity. Think about it. Telling people that you were a Big Kahuna baby sounds much more impressive than saying you were conceived during a Super Kahuna. And if the past is any indication, there will definitely be a spike in the babies conceived this weekend.
But I digress.
Here at Tales of Two Cities we intend to be an active chronicler of The Big Kahuna. Much like we did with the Blizzard of 09, we are inviting readers to send us pictures and stories of TBK from your corner of the county.
I’ll be out in the thick of it too with camera and notebook. The four wheel drive wordbones mobile has been enlisted into service of Howard County General Hospital to help ferry nurses back and forth to work during the storm. My shift begins at 5:30 AM tomorrow morning for the 7 AM nursing shift.
So tune in during the storm and share your stories and pictures, and we’ll all ride out The Big Kahuna together. Surfs up. firstname.lastname@example.org.
