Shabbat Surfing: Jewish Disaster Preparedness Kit

DC is braced for the biggest hurricane in decades on the heels of a bizarre earthquake, and we’re all scurrying around like crazy, stocking up on water, batteries and canned goods.

Are you ready? Let our Jewish disaster preparedness kit help you get everything in order.

Please stay safe and dry this weekend!

DC is Going to EGOT; Got Protection?

EGOT

DC is going for the meteorological equivalent of the EGOT this weekend.

Tracy Jordan thinks we should go for the floods

Earthquake
Hurricanes
Floods
Drought

Or EHFD, if you will.

I think we get extra points for doing it all in one month, right?

We hit the drought two weeks ago and the earthquake yesterday. Hurricane Irene will hit this weekend, and the flood warnings have already started.

While I’m terribly proud of us for getting EHFD this month, it does leave us open to plenty of conjecture about why this is happening to DC. (And also makes us the likely first course in a zombie apocalypse, but that’s the least of our worries right now.)

It’s been suggested that the earth shook yesterday because parties in Congress agreed on something, but that’s obviously insane; everyone knows Congress goes home in August. Otherwise, plausible.

The gays have been blamed. Of course. Certainly who you do “dinner and a movie” with should be enough to hold dominion over all meteorological and tectonic forces.

The other possibility is that we thought New York might get EHFD before us.

Still, we’re planning for multiple programs this weekend: some do-goodery, and fun times. Perhaps this isn’t an award we want to win…
