The Illusory Fish, 2001.
Oleg A. Korolev
I drifted off to sleep yesterday, hearing the continuous steady fall of rain outside, thinking about people coping with Hurricane Irene in America.
Richie and I talked about how hurricanes happen, how and where they occur, how they build up such extreme speeds.
Must be very scary to get caught up in, when I lived in Trinidad, I remember that the island often experienced high winds as well as heavy storms due to hurricanes starting in the Gulf of Mexico.
Our house was on a hill, so I recall seeing roofs flying off houses, and my mother being worried if my father was safe at work.
Sometimes phone lines would be down, and power would be off, but usually we only experienced the slip stream of the hurricane and never luckily the full impact of a hurricane.
Very worrying wondering how the bloggers I know in the USA is doing, I hope every one of them is safe.
Our weather has been awful, no summer in summer time, which is a shame for us, but must been badly for the farmers.
Temperature changes have been affecting us all; in Africa it has resulted in drought and famine.
In America they have been experiencing a lot of extreme weather in the last years, and now they have been sheltering from Hurricane Irene.
