Mother Nature Is a Bitch.

I've just been looking at some of the coverage of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. (Wikipedia has a lot of information, including a link to this helicopter footage of the Mississippi Gulf area, for which there are absolutely no words, other than perhaps "Holy fuck.")

Seeing things like this really puts into perspective how utterly trivial my own nearly-nonexistent problems are, I gotta tell ya. It also, quite irrationally, makes me want to take everything I own and care about and clutch it protectively to my chest. Not to mention making me really, really glad to live in New Mexico, where the weather stays relatively tame and boring.

If you feel so moved, you can donate to the hurricane relief fund at the Red Cross webpage. I'm just off to do that now.
