O'Malley declares storm emergency

By Aaron C. Davis

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has declared a state of emergency in preparation for Hurricane Earl’s expected brush along the state’s coast Friday.

O’Malley is warning residents and tourists to take precautions, including not attempting to drive to or from Ocean City during the storm, should forecasts for high winds and rain remain in effect.

The emergency declaration activates the state’s National Guard to provide assistance if necessary. It also allows the governor to suspend state statutes and regulations if needed to protect public safety.

Meanwhile, former governor Robert Ehrlich prepared for the hurricane by purchasing extra hairspray.

Whenever I think of Martin O'Malley I get storm warnings and heat waves! I hope he is getting a chance to take advantage of the Colm before the storm!

Meanwhile back in the barnyard, "former governor Robert Ehrlich prepared for the hurricane by purchasing extra hairspray." This is not entirely true, what he actually does is doff his "heavy weather toupee", the one made of steel wool. He also double checks the locks to make sure Kendel is securely locked up in the "potting" shed.
