3-5″? Bring it on! Now

3-5″? Bring it on!
Now they say only a 30% chance of a direct hit? Show me what you got
Isabel! I’m at 228 feet. Water? Water doesn’t frighten me.
The wind on the other hand? What was it they said about tornadoes on
King of the Hill the other day? “The weak shall pierce the strong” or
something. Ya, the last thing I need is some cutesy little flower flag
hanging on someone’s porch to come flying through my window to pierce
my supple manflesh. That’s what scares me.
