a storm with no name
In the week proceeding Isabel, we had warnings galore; take in your furniture, buy lots of water, make sure you have batteries, etc. Isabel came and went and when the remnants of her came through, it was barely but a whisper.
Today, however, is a different story. With no warnings ahead of time, we are experiencing driving rain, flash floods, hurricane-strength winds and tornado warnings. I saw three large tree limbs in the street on my way to work.
So, they can predict hurricanes a week in advance, but they can't predict severe thunderstorms and hurricane-like weather the night before it happens?
So what's the difference between a hurricane and what we are experiencing now? A name.
Storm, I dub thee Jezebel.
Just sounds good, that's why.
