Hurricane warning

But I hear Irene’s been downgraded a category. Still, I got most of my shopping done mid-afternoon, then because I’d forgotten a couple of things I was just in the supermarket panic crowd with huge Soviet-era lines. Enjoyed the walk there and back: majestic cumulus clouds over the town’s parish church as Irene starts to make herself known here. For the first time, tomorrow at midnight, Philly’s transit will shut down, bracing for the storm.

Best joke about it so far (from Charles Krauthammer): an earthquake and a hurricane this week? What say we let the Israelites go?
