The hurricane destroyed the house I grew up in. I watched it unfold, on the news, half-heartedly because after my parents moved us away, I forgot about most of the people who lived there, but something happened clicked in my heart when I saw the demolished buildings on my old street.

A massive amount of wind and rain that comes from the sea causing damage and loss of life when they reach land. Usually along the coast of the US due to the location of birth of these naturally forming monsters.

katrina killed so many people, and we really did nothing about it. walmart actually had the best response to the disaster–there with food, clean water, and shelter for the people affected. and it’s the most hated company in america. fema’s a joke…it’s like a metaphor for the entire government right now. good intentions, terrible execution. i really hope things change come november.

This is something that we don’t get in South Africa really. Only during rituals the black snake in the sky will appear to warn peoples of their sins. She is the mother snake

And the hurricane swept me away like dorothy with her red shoes. Here my journey begins and I do not know where it will end or if it will end. Will I find home? Or will I be a vagabond carried by the storm for all eternity? Will I end in the eye of the hurricane or amidst it’s furious strength and power?

I live in fear of a hurricane. I just bought a bucket from the bulk store containing 275 freeze-dried meals. If my house blows down I can still have chicken cacciatore. As long as I can find a way to boil water. And a pot to boil it in. I’m waiting for my husband to buy me a crank radio.

a blaast of air sends us bristling about the plains without direction but driven by the natural results of billions of years of evolution and change. when we land we arise again. We are as a field of poppies.

this is the story of the hurricane the man the authorities came to blame. and they called her katrina and the authoriies abandoned responsibility. See the authorities don’t have much say in forces of nature, though they might hav

katrina. That was a big one. Lots of people died. Really sucks to have been living there. I prefer the high lands. Also, rebuild your refineries already, I’d like my oil cheap again. ktxbye!

Blasting furiously against the structures of humanity. Wet-wash, fighting sea soldier, pushing towards the shores. Harshness at its extreme.
Turmoil and passionate drive.

the winds blew like a train along the rails at a speed no one could possibly imagine. I felt as if I were to be sucked up into another world of which I did not understand, much like the one I live in today.
I felt the crushing blow of a wind laced with particles that felt as if I were being shot with a shotgun and as I hurridly closed my eyes I could almost see the destruction around me though the darkness.

It was as if I was a hurricane blasting through the lives of everyone I encountered. Ever since I put the bottle down my life has changed dramatically!

Blow winds…Shakespeare had you on. My goodness, look at it! Have you ever seen something so…wild! Welling and blowing and dark and boisterous. Dangerous. I love it. There’s something about a huge storm that makes me feel alive. That makes me thrive. That…turns me on. It’s terrifying…and that’s more than half the fun.

Storm, wind, rain. Fun. Flying cars. Death. destruction. Flordia. St. Louis. People dying. Animals being shot. Hurricaine Katrina.
