As someone pointed out to me today, I need to change the most recent blog entry to reflect that, instead of burning down, Denver (and much of the Front Range) is currently washing away on a tide of 'monsoon' rains.
We have highways washed out, bridges washed away, roads undermined, town-wide evacuations up north, and a few deaths.
Other than that, I have lived much life since my last entry but don't have time today to go into details.posted by AnneZook on 09.13.13 at 02:12 PM
Happy and a Healthy New Year!
The Jewish calendar is lunar, with leap months: we are probably going to get one soon, because this is the earliest I ever remember the holidays coming. Hanukah's going to overlap with Thanksgiving, for crying out loud....posted by: Jonathan Dresner on 09.14.13 at 08:45 PM [permalink]
Stay safe, by the way. I hadn't been paying that much attention to the flooding, but yikes.
Fires, floods... You just need a tornado and an earthquake and you've got the whole set! Or a plague, if you want to go classical.posted by: Jonathan Dresner on 09.14.13 at 08:58 PM [permalink]
I'm not sure I ever remember Hanukah overlapping with Thanksgiving? At least--not in recent years. That really does make it feel like the holidays are coming early.
The floods were mostly north of us but they were pretty severe. Hope it's not a foretaste of the kind of winter we can expect.... I was amused (in a grim sort of way) to have the nightly news finally cave in and admit that global warming is, yes, being impacted by human activity and that the problem is becoming serious very quickly.
Stupid rightwingers--insisting that if you just keep *saying* something isn't true, you can remake reality. I'm happy that the truth is finally being accepted but if there hadn't been so much push-back in the last 30 years, maybe we'd have made some progress toward correcting the problem.posted by: Anne on 09.28.13 at 09:11 AM [permalink]
