Right now, the weather forecasts are threatening The End Of The World As We Know It, or at least the biggest baddest storm ever – “Frankenstorm” seems to be the favored name. (Our weather forecasters love drama.)
Some say it’s going to make landfall in Delaware and proceed up the Delaware Bay; some say it’s going to hit near Atlantic City and grind westward across New Jersey; a few are holding out for a direct hit on New York City; I don’t think I’ve heard any predictions today that were still threatening Boston.
Anyway, the consensus around here (but see drama, above) seems to be that the hurricane of the week will either follow the Delaware River or head overland through New Jersey – either way, they tell us it’s going to make a direct hit on Philadelphia. Philly’s only a few miles away. We’re being told to expect to be without electricity for at least a couple of days early next week.
So, just in case, I’m going to see if I can figure out how to create a post and have it publish on a designated day, later than when I click the “Publish” button. Right now it’s late evening on Friday the 26th. I’m going to tell this one to wait until Saturday to become generally available. And we’ll see if it works.
(Aha! Now that I set the “Publish” options to “Schedule for 10-Oct 27, 2012”, that familiar button caption has changed from “Publish” to Schedule”. I think I’ve got it. But we’ll see. Okay….clicking “Schedule” now………)
Note: And this is a successful experiment. I set this to post at 8:57 Saturday morning. It’s now 8:59. I just finished answering a comment on the previous post; when I scrolled up to the top to check, there it was – the nice new link pointing to this entry.
