I'll either be blogging heavily about an odd mix of items over the next two days because I'm bored, or very little because the power will be out (or because I'm enraptured by the storm.) I live-blogged the last hurricane threat we had -- in 2003 -- and included in that post an hurricane-appropriate hymn and a short litany from historic Universalist sources.
Join in the rapture by listening to the is-this-what-the-future-was-to-be http://youarelistening.to/irene and looking at images, like the one following, from NASA. (Click the picture for the source page.) It's now my computer's desktop image.
