Move Over Jim Cantore!

Earl signed up for a correspondence course on meteorology he found on the back of a book of matches. He also just got his wet weather gear from Columbia Sporting Goods... looks like it was from their lunchroom.
That's right everyone, Earl will be reporting on how hurricane Irene is impacting folks north of Philly.
He'll post an hourly update as long as we have electricity.
It's Earl's dream that the Weather Channel notices and starts the series:
That Pig In That Place or A Swine For All Seasons.

 He's all smiles now, we'll see how long that lasts when the rain and winds start!
6AM-it's still dry and not windy at all yet. We expect the worst of it tonight.
7AM-dry everywhere except inside this rain gear... and they say pigs don't sweat!
8AM-who decided we needed to be out here this early??? Let's go get some breakfast,
I'll be back when there's something to report folks!
1PM-Still dry folks, glad I brought a deck of cards...
2PM-It has started to rain, no winds yet.
3PM-Steady, light rain with occasional wind bursts. I could use a chair and Diet Pepsi right about now...
4PM-Wet, Windy and Wild!!!
Jim, your job is safe, you da man! I need a hot shower and my jammies.
Stay safe and have a happy day:@)

  1. Oh darn, that Earl is the cutest and I love his raingear...such a fancy kinda oinker!

    I've been up since 4:00 am. listening to Irene howl and carry on. I can hear brances and pinecones hitting the roof and every now and then a few things that go bump in the night!
    It's frightening, especially when you cannot see what's going on in the dark. We didn't sleep well at all, just worrying about what might be waiting for us in the moring. But, the good news is that we are safe.
    I don't think she's done yet, but I sure hope we have taken some of the fizzle out of her so she won't be so hard on the northeast.

    That Earl is a brave little dude.

  5. Hunker down, Earl, and stay safe! You may soon truly be happier than a pig in mud... lots and lots of mud.

  6. Oh, you and Earl are too much! Love his rain gear even if it did come from a leftover lunch! The man knows how to dress to be dapper!

    I hope it is not too bad for the two of you! Keep each other safe.

  8. Glad Earl is going to keep us up to date on Irene. He may need a bit more rain gear though to brave the elements. Stay safe!

  9. That Earl is one brave pig, worthy of his own FB page and Twitter feed! It made me smile this am and believe me, I am not feeling particularly cheerful! As long as I have power and cable I will post on my blog, but I am not too hopeful. Back to praying....

  29. Seems Earl's forecast is 100% accurate. We could use him down her in Louisiana. He would get a lot of experience. Love him.

  30. You are so funny! My husband and I have a running gag about Jim Cantore. But did you notice today that Jim has really been working out and looked buff? Earl might want to "beef up" instead of porking out! You know it's going to be a bad day when Jim Cantore comes into your neighborhood.

  31. Hello Lynn,
    Earl is a brave pig. He looks so great with his rain gear and umbrella when it was wet and wild. Made me smile. I hope, you all stay safe and Earl get his shower and jammies.
    Best greetings, Johanna
