Deja vu?

Image 2012, Karla Dorman

The plots are all over the place,
spaghettied across the Gulf
from Florida to Texas.  A few of

the models try to bring him to
my backyard, well inland ---
need rain, but not all of it at 

once.  Been trending West
(go West, young man?) with
each run.  Right now, he has

his eye on New Orleans.  Irony:
him riding the warm waters
into Galveston.  Isaac:  writing

new chapters in frustration
for the meteorologists trying
to predict which path he'll take.

Very clever !!!

"Spaghettied" so creative. Perfect!

Here again, you have used brevity, simplicity, and selective images to
paint an unforgettable picture.

Touch of humor the cherry on top!!

That's why they used to call these storms with female names. But with our gender bending society, calling it Isaac doesn't mean it's going to behave like a boy. I too, have noticed the westward shift with each new forecast. Perhaps Galveston should wake up before the flooding occurs again before people can get out. Whatever the case. I think East Texas is in for some rain and so is my brother in Elkhart, Indiana, complaining all summer about both the lack of rain and lower water levels in the lake.

Stay high and dry until the wind blows.

And gas is already responding: $3.59. REALLY?? UGH!! I am praying for those in the path of Isaac; they don't NEED any more calamity! Haven't they already been through ENOUGH with Katrina, Ike, and Rita????

Sad, heartbreaking slap of reality, powerfully penned! Very well done, Karla!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :(
