I think it will be, not necessarily a "flop", but much less than many ppl are worried about. Ppl are can cancelling everything on Saturday, but it's not coming until Sunday-Monday. This is from the AP at Noon today (Thursday): >> Irene could hit North Carolina's Outer Banks on Saturday afternoon with winds around 115 mph (185 kph). It's predicted to chug up the East Coast, dumping rain from Virginia to New York City before a much-weakened form reaches land in Connecticut. <<
