Brief Hiatus

The illustration above is from the US National Weather Service.  It depicts the 2005 storm season, which was the worst in living memory.  Below, is the result of Katrina.  The time has come, the walrus said, to begin battening hatches, bringing in supplies, testing emergency equipment, and researching shelter and evacuation routes.  Please withhold comments about last-minute-lin.

For anyone who might take Irene lightly, please Google hurricanes Camile, Andrew, and Katrina.  A bit of preparation could have saved many lives and much property.  Lord willing and the creeks don't rise, the empress blogspot will return.  If not, the Elysian Fields are said to be lovely this time of year.

May your gods be with you.
