A Pretty Name Irene

The week is over. Irene did not visit Florida, just grazed us with a little bit of rain and brushed the shoreline with rough pounding surf.

Evening on the IntracoastalI called my friends in New York and listened to their frustration with closing subways... This is first time they really start understanding what it means when hurricanes hit Florida.

Now New York is in this sense became closer to Florida.

Some people say Hurricanes are the curse.

They are not. Hurricanes are one of the ways the nature does the cleanup. The other being fires. And the other one being flooding.

It becomes the curse because we are in the way. We love living by the beach, and it is dangerous when Hurricanes come. It has always been dangerous. What is different now is that there is no surprise factor.

We know about the Hurricanes when they just start forming close to African shores. We watch them develop, learn their trajectory, calculate strength, prepare, evacuate...

But this time Irene decided to veer north...

And here it was a beautiful sunset on the Intracoastal.

Jon, like the photo of a sunset on the Intracoastal. Maybe Hurricanes are nature's cleanup, but we sure are not missing it
