News of the Day


It is a crazy news week. 

There are three hurricanes we are dealing with in the Atlantic Basin: Irma, Jose, Katia. And this is in the wake of Harvey. Irma is a monster storm taking aim at many of the Caribbean islands that Chris and I have visited during the past couple of years. 

Irma is headed to Florida and it is going make a mess of September and is disrupting the lives of millions more people across the Caribbean and in the souther United States. 

But wait, there's more!

Don't forget Texas and Louisiana! Things are still miserable there. 

I heard the story of a woman who lost her pet donkey, I linked it here, and coupled with the total loss of her house, it is a gut-wrenching story. 

Fire in LA
But wait--there is fire!

Despite all of the rain falling on the south and east, the west is dry and burning. It is appalling and I could not even find mention of it on the front page of the New York Times. NBC is carrying the stories of the fires burning out of control in the west. 

Of course, this is just the beginning--but the news is all over the place. China-US relations, missiles in Korea, Brexit is back, and of course Congress is back in session and so the drama is just beginning there.

Stay tuned--it promises to be an interesting week or two ahead.
