"That you may ruminate"

…On Hanna.

Posted by Steve on September 6, 2008

It’s hard for me to believe that the minor annoyance that blew through here this morning was the same storm that killed over 500 people in Haiti. That’s especially true since the deaths in Haiti were primarily due to flooding, and asides from some rain yesterday afternoon and early last night, there was no noticeable precipitation here. Some gusty wind, but no flood-inducing rain. I guess that’s the difference between a Tropical Storm that’s actually in the tropics and a Tropical Storm that’s in a temperate zone.

Anyway, the last Hurricane Hanna there’ll ever be (the name’s a lock for retirement… and why only one H?) had minimal impact here in Hampton Roads.
