Josephine is getting ripped apart. Not sure she will recover. Ike could be a problem for Florida or even the Gulf.

Of course, predicting a hurricane is a bit easier...than predicting the next big earthquake.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

What do you mean? Hurricane Barack hit Washington a couple of years ago and while it was largely a non-event...the potential for wind damage remains at high levels.

Hurricanes you get swamped with information for weeks at a time, and this year maybe a month at a time. The earthquake usually comes, and goes before you truly realize what has happened. Fires in Ca. are kind of like the hurricanes only they start quickly.

I lived at the top of Twin Peaks during the 89 quake. It was eery as darkness fell over the city, and nearly zero lights came on. Mother Nature is absolutely in charge......LOLOLOL
