Yes, Americans of the east, please do not use this hurricane as an opportunity to catch some big surf. There was actually a warning on one of the weather channels urging peeps not to try and catch a wave in these weather conditions. I kid you not.
But then, in America. anything is possible – as long as it is bigger and better.
Doing the channel flick – quite exciting to see which TV presenter is bolder and more balls to the wall – who can stand the rain, who is wearing the coolest storm gear and who will be washed out to sea first, as they teeter off some fragile-looking pier.
