It’s Tuesday and there are people without power. The only upside is the temperature is in the fifties. We lucked out, the power blinked during the storm but stayed on. This just reinforces the belief that we as a people are pushing our luck and sometime down the road we’re going to get our collective butt kicked by Mother Nature. We believe we can conquer anything in the world. The world has been around longer than we have and can always come up with something to rattle our collective cage. The news people looked at the storm as close to the apocalypse. Not even close. This was just a hiccup. We can hope we’re not around when the big spew comes. If it’s due to our mismanagement of the environment it’s our fault and we should hope our descendants forgive us for screwing up. If it’s going to come let’s hope it’s quick and doesn’t linger.
