If you’re living in the Garden State and especially near the shore, then I bet that you heard about all of the warnings and beach closings for this weekend. It seems that the tail end of Hurricane Bill is getting ready to smack portions of the New England area and we’re in its path.
This has got to be a big pain in the ass to those businesses that are located along the Jersey Shore in those areas that are heavy tourist areas. With beaches closed and the rain coming down, nobody is going to want to come down to the shore this weekend. Of course, I hope that we miss the majority of the downpour so that some of these businesses can make some money (Lord knows that they need the revenue), however, I don’t think that we’ll be able to avoid getting washed out this weekend.
No matter what, though, be sure that you’re safe and out of harm’s way if/when the rain starts coming down. Even the tail end of hurricanes can pack some powerful punches.
