Watch and read enough weather reports, and you start to feel like the bad weather is happening right outside.
I blame Obama.
Ironically, there was a news story that says that, indeed, voters blame the incumbent for natural disasters!
We're just monkeys, I tell you.
O.K. Ready to watch those exciting last 3 games of the World Series.
So, I'm thinking. Thank goodness we don't have hurricanes around here. Or tornadoes.
Then -- I read something that said the closest parallel to Sandy was the Columbus Day storm in Oregon in 1962. A typhoon mixing with a winter storm.
I was having an overnight birthday party that night -- it was really cool. The rain pounded the windows until water was leaking through all the cracks. The power was off. Neat stuff when you're 10 years old.
Linda lived in Crescent City. She said they were pounded by three years worth of natural disasters -- floods, earthquake tsunami's and the Columbus Day storm.
"It was Obama's fault."
"He was just a baby!"
Not that Walden was in any danger, but when the Bulletin's headline is: "Walden Ad Lists Accomplishments" you have to wonder if that is editorial or news.
Still have some research to do on voting.
I tend to consolidate the Oregonian, Bulletin and Source recommendations, filter it through my political leanings, and make my best guess.
Straight Democratic. I'm talking more about measures and judges, etc.
I used to count on me Mum about those things, because she was heavily involved in the League of Women Voters and they were usually spot on in their recommendations. Maybe I can find that online.
Going to vote in the next few days, make sure it gets in in plenty of time.
