Sunday 160 - Calm Down Irene, Please


Under the comfort and warmth 
of calm blue Pacific Northwest skies 
he counted his blessings 
and hoped those same skies 
would soon appear 
on the eastern seaboard.

I share the very same sentiments MM... I have been thinking and praying for all in the path of Irene and hope that the forcasted storm surge isn't as bad as what has been predicted. We in QLD know only too well what those along the Eastern Seaboard are being faced with. A very thoughtful 160. Stay safe everyone!

That was kind, Monkey Man. You might leave scathing and honest comments on my blog, but you really are a nice guy on the inside! :)

Good thoughts. And fingers crossed for everyone on the east side this week.

I'm lucky to live in a place that rarely has bad weather. I can't imagine the stress this causes people, or that they get used to it.

We have comfortable accommodations, if anyone needs a guest room...

My subject this week is the same as yours--Irene. Florida missed it this time--I'm so grateful! I'm also glad that it had diminished as much as it had before landfall was made. Take care out there people!

Thanks for the sentiment, MM. Irene will pass over about seven miles to our east (close enough as dammit, as the Brits might say) within the next couple of hours, but it looks like she's running out of steam. The winds are down to 58 mph, and she still has a bit of ground to cover to get to us. We'll be very wet, but I think we'll be fine otherwise.

Oh, I miss Portland!! You guys have had your share of unpleasant weather this summer, but nothing like what the East coast is getting. Nice of you to want to share your sunshine :)

Mine is here

I agree.

I watched it unfold on fourteen different channels and could only think of being at sea during a couple of them thirty five years ago and how this one, the worst part of it is going to be getting the republicans in government to get off some relief cash.

Well-spelled, brother Peep!
