Some random thoughts about the weather...

Here are some of today's thoughts...

There's a heatwave going on in New England. They showed pictures on TV of a Boston street and there was a guy running along in a tight athletic vest and very short shorts. It is now clear to me why New England is generally cold, it's so that people with bodies like these keep covered up! His legs were of the terrifying sinewy type, and so white, staring at them could cause snowblindness. He looked like a giant curly-haired chicken.

Hurricane Emily is arriving in Texas. Again, they showed people who are arriving for "vacations". What kind of vacation is it to jet in to the path of an oncoming hurricane? I don't care if your last minute deal did cost $89.99, it's totally stupid.

There was flooding in a nearby part of Tennessee this week, 4 inches of rain fell in just 30 minutes. That's a lot. They showed people whose homes had been damaged on the news. One guy was stood outside a really run-down house, moaning about all the stuff inside that had been damaged. Now, I don't want to be too judgmental, but looking at this guy's setup it's hard to believe that anything decent got wrecked. Basically, his house was full of broken crap before the bad weather, now he has a house full of soaking wet crap is all.
