Note about Hurricane Sandy--don't skate in the rain

Rule #1: Never, ever, ever roller skate in a hurricane.

Rule #2: Never, ever, ever roller skate in the rain.

Why?

Roller skating on wet cement is like ice skating without the edges.  Then you'll ruin your bearings.   You may likely get a concussion.

This has been a public service announcement.
