This Space for Rent

Oh, no, not again

A few weeks ago, I watched with dismay as hurricana Katrina, which started as a smallish category one hurricane, cleared the Florida peninsula and blew up, with amazing speed, into a BHFH (which, distressingly, revealed that, yes, the B*sh Junta doesn't care about anyone who doesn't have a summer house in Kennebunkport.) Well, in the last couple of days, tropical storm hurricane Rita has been threading the needle between the Florida keys and Cuba, and today it started to blow up in the same terrifying way: At midnight, it was a strong tropical storm; this morning, it was a category one hurricane, and it just blew up into a category two hurricane as it started sweeping past the keys.

I expect that the Vogon construction ships will be arriving any day now.
