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.

It always amazes me to read what kind of scary weather you got there in the States. And honestly, I have no idea how you can die in a storm.
It varies widely across the country. You have to remember how large the US is. Here in the central part of the country the only real issues are tornados and flooding. Tornados are totally random. You can live in "tornado alley" and never see, let alone get hit by, a tornado for years. Flooding is pretty avoidable, don't live in a flood plain. But for people on the coasts...totally different.

Here in NYC, natural disasters aren't really a major threat, but clear blue skies in September still freak me out.
