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. Seriously, I have experienced all bad weather Germany has to offer and never ever was there ever something that could endanger my life. Or maybe that's because I would never move next to a river or a mountain. Only thing that pisses me off is when my cellar floods. I even have sandbags prepared in case the next "storm of the century" is announced. And that is just to prevent flooding, not a matter of survival. But then, I also live about 50m above the water level. Those 50m make all the difference, apparently.

Not to be rude, buddy, but the "storms" you get in Germany are peanuts compared to the ones that tear up the US. I lived in Holland for 30 years, and now live in the Midwest; what we call a mild storm here would have people in Holland cowering in shelters...
