A hurricane is a drink concocted from fruit punch and gasoline (lots of rum). They’re popular in New Orleans and quite delicious, and for some reason I decided to pour one into an ice cube tray.
Only good can come from these 1 inch x 1 inch frozen alcohol cubes. No longer will you get to the end of your drink and be bummed to see ice cubes, because hurricane ice cubes keep the good times rolling.
Now that ice cubes for the New Orleans drink are taken care of, we can move on to Fernet and Ginger Ale ice cubes for San Francisco…
Democrat Point: Long Island, New York (Hurricane Igor 2010)
The swell from Hurricane Igor has been around for the past few days here on the the shores of Long Island. The high winds and strong currents made for a long Sunday of paddling and missed waves. Democrat Point (pictured above) handled the size well but the drift didn’t make it worth the work of getting out. The 2010 hurricane season has lived up to the hype so far. Keep an eye out for good clean waves tomorrow (Monday 9/20) morning.
As Long Island and the whole North East prepare for the first hurricane of the season, I’m headed to land locked Kansas City. Perfect timing. Hurricane Bill is going to pass by Long Island this Saturday and Sunday, with Sunday being the day.
Warm water and head high surf will be gifted to North East surfers. Bummed to miss it, but I’ll be enjoying BBQ and the Kansas City Royals in America’s heartland, that’s just how it goes sometimes. Last weekend on LI there was absolutely no surf and it was the only heat wave of the summer.
However, Bunger Surf Shop (Babylon, NY) is holding it’s 21st annual surf contest, and it should shape up to be epic surf conditions. So get yourself to Gilgo beach this Sunday, as this is going to be Long Island at its best.
