Goodnight Irene

Hurricane Irene's current path is a "nightmare scenario."

All eyes were on Irene's projected path, which showed it bringing misery to every city along the I-95 corridor, including Washington, New York and Boston. The former chief of the National Hurricane Center called it one of his three worst possible situations.

"One of my greatest nightmares was having a major hurricane go up the whole Northeast Coast," Max Mayfield, the center's retired director, told The Associated Press.

He said the damage will probably climb into billions of dollars: "This is going to have an impact on the United States economy."

It's already causing sports events to be rescheduled. The Reds played a doubleheader yesterday to avoid playing today. The Phillies will play a doubleheader Saturday, and the Yankees are considering playing a doubleheader Friday.

I'm guessing Irene won't be as bad as Great New England Hurricane of 1938. The path over land should weaken the storm. But this is nothing to mess with.
