Weather watch

Quiet Labor day weekend, mostly soaking in whatever warmth there is left in the waning months of August. The leaves will soon give up their bright greens slowly losing their sprightly resilience and in a couple of months will fall away to the earth. The cold will set in and the long dreary winter slog will start. While Hurricane Gustav is barreling down the Caribbean and heading for the Louisiana shores, a hitherto unheard of storm, Palin seems to be pounding us down from Alaska. While the former will only have short term consequences, the latter could dig in deeper with unknown results. I sincerely hope both storms just blow away peacefully with zero national damage.

I really like the comparison between Gustav and Palin!! Wonder why Obama did not choose Hillary as his running mate though..
