This is It?

Isabel must have done all her ass-kicking somewhere else, ’cause round these parts, it’s done tuckered out. Our windows are wide open at the moment so we can listen to the lively wind, but there’s no rain. Haven’t lost power yet, though some parts of Maryland apparently have. Still, it feels — aw, man, there it goes! Earlier today I was poo-pooing the weather and this huge wind kicked up. It just happened again as I was typing this. Ah, maybe that’s the trick!

Bring it on, Isabel. What you got? This isn’t a natural disaster, it’s a natural footnote. Come on!

Hmm, I guess it only works went I’m unconsciously disparaging the weather.
