Wheel in the sky

As I write this, Hurricane Gustav is taking a bead on the gulf coast. It has been downgraded to a Category 3 hurricane at the moment, but it’s expected to gain strength once it gets north of Cuba. Where it’s going to make landfall in the US is still guesswork, but it’s not looking good for the city of New Orleans. Again.

In the Pacific Northwest, it’s a chilly morning, with autumn hanging in the air. It’s cloudy and cold, colder than it should be (I think). Still, while the weather is less than what I might hope for, at least there’s a better-than-average chance it won’t knock down my house and kill me.

I’m hoping that, when the day comes up and I get a chance to look outside, that I’ll feel like getting out on the water. But mostly I’m hoping for the people that make their homes in southern Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana, that their day is better somehow than it appears it will be at the moment.
