Out of the Blue

Reports of evacuations in New Orleans due to Tropical Storm Isaac certainly bring back scary memories, especially with the predictions it may be a hurricane when it finds land some time tomorrow. I was surprised to realize by way of the news about this that Wednesday is the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, as it seems more recent than that. Here's hoping that all the time that's passed has been used to better protect that area from the possible ravages of the storm.

I don't totally agree on flooding being avoidable. A bad enough storm or too much precipitation on the wrong hilly area can create a flood almost anywhere.

Floods are also really scary and dangerous in person. I've seen way too many flash floods here in Pittsburgh. People regularly die in them.

But knowing that weather is the one thing humans will never control, there's some solace in that.
