Last words on Earl

Reaction on Cape Cod to the overhyped and underwhelming Hurricane/Tropical Storm Earl, according to The Associated Press and the Boston Globe:

Red Cross worker Harry Watlin: "Everybody was ready for something big to happen. But when it came, most of us hardly even noticed."

Peter Judge, spokesman for the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency: "It wasn't even a really bad rainstorm."

Norm Frazee, resort company employee: "That was just normal 'winter' weather. We get winds like that almost every day in the winter."

Shelley McThomas, visitor from Kansas City, Mo.: "Earl petered out. I'm disappointed with Earl, like so many men in my life."

Missing from the above list of quotes, of course, is any weather forecaster saying "We got it wrong."
