The news said a storm was coming. One like we hadn't seen in a decade. People in the South were grumbling, "We get these storms all the damn time and nobody cares". There's no explaining why some things make the news and other things don't. Maybe the reasons are just too ugly. Only thing I know is Irene got real angry right over Vermont. Brooks all at once turned into angry wide rushing rivers running straight through the middle of towns, washing away roads and homes and lives. The news is over - meanwhile mold grows up on the rubble.
