Stormy weather

Yesterday, I enjoyed a lazy Saturday at home, waiting and waiting for the remnants of what was Hurricane Hannah to come and drench us. The waterworks didn’t get going until late in the afternoon, and although it was quite a bit of rain, the winds were not even close to what I’d expected.

Now comes word that Hurricane Ike, a massive Category 4 storm, is ripping through the Caribbean. It devastated Haiti, and is now taking aim at Cuba and the Florida Keys. Where it heads after that is yet to be determined, but it looks like Texas may be in its path. And, of course, it could possibly swing back and nail the New Orleans area again. Disconcerting, to say the least.
