I overheard these words a couple of weeks ago while waiting for a burger at a normally crowded burger joint.
The cashier said this to a cook. Wondering where the overflow crowds were. The crowds were hungry, I’m sure, but they were also hunkering down for the biggest windstorm to hit the area in over a decade. Later that night, over 1.4 million households in the greater Seattle area (what a fucking oxymoron that is) would find themselves powerless (without power), some for over 2 weeks! That storm showed us a few things:
Firstly, don’t underestimate Mother Nature.
Secondly, it showed how unprepared we were for it.
OK, that being said, I must admit that I deleted the 2 pages that followed this from last night.
Why, you ask?
Simply, I ranted and whined about things that at the time seemed relevent, but a day later, not so much, no.
Anyhoo, I just wanted to let you know that I haven’t forgotten any of you, I’m just trying to fill a bad hand.
Soon, if and when I decide what to do if and when I grow up, I’ll fill you in on all of the gory details.
Until then, please have a healthy and prosperous New Year
