We in Western Massachusetts are just not used to this kind of weather. Well, maybe we should be.

On June 1, we get a tornado. Then a series of microbursts and a hellacious thunder storm that did more damage in my neighborhood than the tornado did. Earlier this week, an earthquake. And now it looks like we're right smack dab in the path of Hurricane Irene.

My advise? Hunker down, bring in the lawn furniture, stock up on water, batteries and essentials,  and make sure yoru cell phones and iPods are well charged.

In case you want some hurricane themed music for today. check out David "Baby" Cortez  performing the Hammond B-3 fueled "Hurricane" from David "Baby" Cortez and His Happy Organ (seriously - that's the title of the album - what were they thinking?).

Stay dry,and stay safe.
