I planned to go to Ocean City this coming Monday, should I cancel my reservation and postpone the trip to next week because of Irene?
What would you do? DD has been waiting for this trip all summer.

Watching the news tonight it looked and sounded to me that we "might" get some rain on Saturday and by Sunday night it will be up in New England somewhere. If you aren't even going until Monday, why would you cancel?

I'd keep an eye on it but I wouldn't cancel just yet. At any rate - usually what comes behind a storm like this is a lot of high pressure which means you might encounter glorious weather after it rolls out!

Sounds like it will be on its way out by Monday. If you were going Saturday, I'd say yes.

It could also affect the undertow and make the ocean rougher than usual, if you were planning on swimming in it.

Have a good time! If you swim, be sure to stick to guarded beaches. Like HokieFan said, A passing storm can cause some rough surf and undertows.

Yes, the surfers usually love the day after a hurricane.

As far as I'm concerned - you couldn't pick a better time to go!
