The morning after

Three things:

  1. There's been no power here since late last night, and as expected, a few trees are down, and the streets are covered in a carpet of pine needles. Other than that, I'm happy to say that all is well.
  2. I'd like to request that people stop saying that we dodged a bullet. I know it's a figure of speech but it's not applicable here because the subject (we) did not have the action on the direct object (bullet). The fact is that the bullet wobbled eastward.
  3. As seems to be an all too familiar thing as of late, my prayers and thoughts are with our neighbors to the east of Houston, and all over Louisiana.
