From a coworker who doesn't know me all that well (meaning we don't hang out and chat much because she's insanely busy and rarely in the front office), regarding Hurricane Katrina: "When I first heard the name I thought 'how weird, because Katrina is such an uncommon name, and so what are the chances that I'd know someone with the same name as this incredibly destructive hurricane'... and then I thought 'well, it is somehow fitting, because you're definitely a force of nature to be reckoned with.'"

... I ... uh?

I'd actually been eyeing the "Reflections of a Sentient Tornado" (credit for phrase goes to [livejournal.com profile] kahnman) link text on my LJ and thinking it might just be time to change that.
(Which doesn't mean I haven't been glued to Google News. I have. Crying, too. Damn, real life sucks sometimes.)

“We expect this to be the second most costly disaster in the history of the American Red Cross -- second only to 9/11. This will probably cost more than $100 million.”

How can this be LESS expensive than 9/11?? Much larger area affected, etc and all? I don't get it.
