Changes of Season

Justin Katz

For the record, I didn't intend to scale back quite so drastically or quite so quickly, but in a variety of respects (mostly having to do with various responsibilities), summer ended early. It didn't help that it took me until last night to get through the long-awaited novel A Dance with Dragons, by George R.R. Martin.

But hey, if Drudge can run a hurricane path graphic and the accompanying headline for days on end, surely we can get away with light posting. According to the Weather Channel's interactive map, we're right at the border of the point at which hurricane Irene fades from a major threat to a dramatic storm.

Just to be safe, though, be sure to get out to the store and buy some milk. Nothing wards off extreme weather quite so effectively as a large distribution of dairy in refrigerators across the state.

I knew it! I always suspected that the dairy farmers and bakers were behind all this stormy weather!

Possible Projo headline?

"Family of Four Dies in Storm; No Milk and Bread to Blame." or "Ebola Outbreak Thwarted; Wheat Bread and Milk Combination Found to be Cure.....Obviously!"

This is about the only thing in RI that can make you smile these days.

I havenoticed that "just in time delivery" seems to work againstus when demand surges. I also noticed Job Lot's radio ad indicates that they are "not raising prices" on Hurricane supplies. A tacit implication that everyone else is.

I've got over 1/2 million oysters in the water and two boats on now dry land. Two workers who are expecting work next week. I heard today that this storm is the size of Texas. And Rick Perry is now leading in the polls. Coincidence? Good luck everybody. Be safe this weekend. Phil

Folks should have some marijuana on hand during the storm, incase of a sudden pancreatitis attack.

A crack pipe also helps.
(works best when you have cocaine in your system already)
