Ida: At least 1 dead, more than a million customers without power in Louisiana
Dire predictions. Weather Channel in near orgasmic frenzy that Ida may devastate the coast of Louisiana. Of course Al Roker had to be there to witness the devastation.
Then uh oh. Ida downgraded to tropical storm. Lots of rain. Power outages. Yes, some damage. I watched a few minutes of the Weather Channel this morning and they had footage of a hospital losing part of its roof!!! Awful you say? Well it would have been had the roof been blown off. But it was the tar roofing material that blew off. Not the actual roof. Just the materials. It was doubly painful to listen to the Weather Channel anchor say No one was hurt. You know they and Al Roker want the storms to be awful or else they wouldn’t be there. It’s like driving by a bad car accident and slowing down to see if there are dead bodies.
Al Roker’s last Instagram post was about the power going out in their hotel. Wow. That is breaking news. Power goes out in storm. 🤦🏻♀️
Otherwise a dull Monday in my neck of the woods. I’m waiting on Carraway maintenance to help me with a dishwasher problem. I’ve got to follow up with Cablevision and get to Bedford at some point to hand off a lockbox I bought for the builder to use.
Meanwhile, back to my coffee. Have a great Monday.
