Hurricane Isaac penetrates New Orleans with more than a tickle, a giggle and a trickle.
One meaning of Isaac is "he will laugh."
So he may.
As it is above, so it shall be below.
Here you see Katrina above and Isaac below.
Hurricanes separated by seven years, to the day on August 29th,
are mirrors of each other.
Hurricane Isaac is pulling media attention from the Republican Convention of 2012, where various people, such as Governor Christie, are praising the man of many states, tax havens, and positions.
Ah, Governor Christie gives forth with a Masonic signal to the faithful, which he appears to be practicing for his speech tonight.
Cartoonists will note the turmoil that Isaac has brought to this political week.
But most of the imagery will be more about hurricane clouds than Republican ones.
The obviously juvenile game to be played more often, I'm afraid, will be a secret one to see how many unfortunate meteorologists and meteorology-wanabes stand in front of their maps filled with penal graphics versus weather patterns. This is necessary for human survival, via comedic relief, of course.
The first winner for 2012 goes to KJRH, Tulsa, Oklahoma weatherman Taft Price, who walked right into the deadly "Hurricane Weather Dong" trap, when he was discussing Tropical Storm Isaac, above. Discovery credit to Patrick.
Taft joins the Hall of Weather Map Shame occupied by these gentlemen.
Our well wishes for safety and health to all in the path of Hurricane Isaac
