Ten billion dollar disasters so far this year!

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is reporting that Hurricane Irene is the tenth one billion dollar disaster this year.  And we are just at the beginning of the hurricane season!

Despite New Yorkers' grumblings that they actually had to go out and spend money on water and canned goods, it's to be hoped that folks wise up -- as my friend Shelby says, "this year could be the new normal."

And there's more coming, so the investment far outweighs the inconvenience
