Yesterday I was reveling in my quiet time at home while the kids were at school, trying to get some work done.. I put in a few good hours then decided to take my tweet break and see what my Twitter buddies were up to. Little did I realize my new Twitter buddy, Rick Sanchez from CNN, was live tweeting Hurricane Ike from Morgan Point Texas. Here is the tweet I received:
RICK SANCHEZ: "going on the air in just 14 minutes, in morgan’s point. think i may be right in it.
bay already up ten feet.
So I turned on the TV, wanting to see if it was for real and to see how people are doing in Texas (I have friends there). And what do you know – there was Rick – holding onto his hat and checking Twitter from his computer. From his report, people were prepared and holding up fine.
My next tweet back to him was:
TECHMAMA: "What laptop are you using that you can have it out in the rainy, windy weather while you are covering the hurricane?
Seriously, I could use that type of laptop so I could do some work while my three boys are playing on the front lawn, which many times feels like a Hurricane!
Kinda fun getting news updates on Twitter (or Facebook for the matter)..
