Tropical Storm Bill

Thoughts as of this morning:


Yesterday, the media were doing an excellent job of hyping the system in the Gulf, and it looks like a lot of people bought into it. Now imagine my (lack of) surprise this morning when I woke up and there were the faintest hints of blue sky overhead, when from the way people were acting yesterday, the world was scheduled to end by noon.

Called the office emergency hotline just to be sure, and lo and behold, the offices are open. So, I’m at the office (don’t tell them I’m typing this up). The roads were clear, though. It was funny.

The more level-headed are saying that whatever we get (if anything) will move in this afternoon.

Maybe I’ll get some excitement after all, but I kind of doubt it.

Bark at me
