Do you remember Hurricane Floyd in 1999? That's right don't because its impact on the Berkshires was negligible. As exciting as both a hurricane and an earthquake in the same week would be (locusts are arriving on Wednesday--we just know them as students! ba-dum-dum!--be here all week!), don't expect much as this storm starts to push eastward. We've checked with our usual gang of experts, and we are likely to see some rain on Sunday with a few strong breezes. In snow terms, we talking 4-5 inches not the 12+ inch variety of storm. And really, that's just fine with us as it still is summer vacation.

We'll keep an eye on it but right now we think Irene will head out of the area faster on Sunday and more to the east.
