Damp Squib

Hurricanes are a fact of late-summer life even at the inland locale where I live. Mostly, they’re just annoying, much like earthquakes in Los Angeles. Occasionally they’re a much bigger deal. Hanna turned out to be nothing much. We got a boatload of rain and what sounded in the morning like just a little bit of wind. The rain was welcome, as we’ve been in a drought thanks largely to the lack of tropical storm activity the past couple of years.
