Have a nice vacation, they said.
Get some rest. Relax and unwind, they said.
Let me tell you something: earthquakes are not relaxing.
Neither, for that matter, are approaching hurricanes. A shot from this morning as we fled the Delaware shore:
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to work on winning my cats' forgiveness and batten down the hatches before the weather gets serious.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
