The hurricane is on

I'm not in its path, but the hurricane is going to leave me with a buttload of nasty weather. May be quiet the next couple days.

Funny story: I've been playing phone tag this week with an archaeologist in a beachfront town about getting some specimens my lab analyzed back to him. They're fragile, so I was going to hand-deliver them. We finally scheduled for today. He called this morning to confirm, and I cancelled on him, citing my personal rules of thumb: "Never eat anything bigger than your head, never gamble with a man whose first name is a state, and never visit a coastal town on the day of a hurricane."
