Here Comes the Storm

leave a comment »

At dusk in Houston, we’re starting to see cloud cover from Gustav. I still haven’t gotten around to filling the Blue Bug‘s tank, but I don’t expect to regret my procrastination. Yes, we’ll be “wise” enough to keep an eye on the storm reports through the evening as it takes aim at New Orleans, but blame that more on the void in any other good TV than on any local weather threat. Even if the remnants veer westward, as some projections send it, we’ll be on the clean side of things and at most see a little leftover wind, hardly enough to make me worry about taking in the lawn furniture. Watch me yawn.

Thank the Gods for Gustav

What luck! Usually you just can’t script these things so perfectly, can you?

     GEORGE:   Whew!!  Now I have a good excuse
not to show up at the convention!

JOHN: Whew!! Now he has a good excuse
not to show up at the convention!

(Equally scripted: The GOP craves political redemption from Gustav without having the truth be acknowledged that that’s what they want. Heck of a job, Georgie.)
