Another June 1, Another Fun One

Mrs. Melpomene and I awoke this morning at 6 a.m. to the on rush of winds and rain connected to our June 1 storm, Barry. For June, we are living on the east coast of Florida in a little beach house with our two cats. It's shades of the past.

We bought our house in Lakeview in 2003 on our anniversary. We moved in, no joke, in the middle of a Tropical Storm, Bill, a month later.

After Katrina, I moved to Virginia Beach, VA about a few days before Hurricane Ophelia came bearing down, before veering off.

It seems every time we pull out that clear packing tape and a few boxes, there is a serious storm offshore. Maybe we need to move to Denver, and away from all this coastal lunacy.

1 word for you: blizzard.

Not the DQ kind, either.

At least you're not Jim Cantore, the anode to any hurricane's diode. If you see him in the area, RUN fast and far.

I, too, have a black cloud following me - to wit - three historic floods in Easton since I have lived here, tornado in New Jersey in 2002, the New York Blackout occurred while I was traveling on the NJ Turnpike heading into the city, and I happened to be visiting my mom in Metairie when Katrina came calling. It seems I can't get away from it.
