Rock You Like a Hurricane?

After half a week of civilian alerts, weather maps projecting a swirling hurricane sitting right on top of this place, and this morning's paper predicting intense, lashing rains all day today, here's what happened: it rained yesterday. Probably got a few inches. It's cool and breezy this morning, with the sun straining to burn through the clouds.

Memo to New Orleans city planners: Try pulling the city back from the coast about 500 miles, and throwing up a mountain range along the outskirts. See if that works.
