Anyone who has turned on cable news recently has heard a variety of scenarios for the upcoming Rapture that will start May 21. http://www.lodinews.com/news/article_62daf601-90d1-59b6-8a84-56108acc6d45.html" target="_blank">We even wrote a story about it back in April when billboards started popping up around town announcing that it is coming.
My Twitter and Facebook feeds have been filled with references, and comedians/news outlets are having field days talking about the correct way to observe the end of the world.
So here is what I will be doing. Sports reporter Joelle Milholm and I plan to head to the http://www.lodinews.com/features/article_3838b1d0-07af-509d-a99d-1c702a2567be.html" target="_blank">West Coast Beer Fest on Saturday to find some new beers that we can enjoy as the world ends over the next five months.
On Sunday (on the assumption I will not be one of the 144,000 to be raptured on the first round), I plan to head to http://www.ironstonevineyards.com/" target="_blank">Ironstone Vineyards for some wine tasting, and then to the http://www.frogtown.org/" target="_blank">Calaveras County Fair to watch frog jumping.
Now I want to hear from you. What are plans? Are you using the end of the world as an excuse to throw a party? Are you hiding in your bunker with a year supply of food? Are you celebrating a major life milestone that happened to be scheduled on the same day?
Comment or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and maybe I'll post some of the best answers this weekend or Monday.
Hope everyone has a good weekend, Rapture or no Rapture.
