Tropical Storm Isaac

Isaac went from a hurricane back to a tropical storm after landfall this morning, but not before dumping a lot of rain on the Gulf Coast, causing a lot of flooding, power outages, and evacuations.

As FC noted this morning, the track takes it up to the drought-stricken Midwest, so there is a silver lining to this storm. But after seeing the pictures from Louisiana, my thoughts are with the people there, and I’m thankful to have gotten away with little more than a huge pile of limbs and palm fronds at the end of the driveway.
