Pressure Drop

As the winds rise and the barometer falls, I have concluded that Toots and the Maytals' "Pressure Drop" makes perfect pre-storm listening.
I say a pressure drop, oh pressure
Oh yeah, pressure drop a drop on you
I say a pressure drop, oh pressure
Oh yeah, pressure drop a drop on you 
(The song can barely be said to have lyrics — mostly the phrase "pressure drop" is repeated several score times — but the few more verbose passages indicate its actually words of warning to a wayward lady: "I say when it drops, oh you gonna feel it / Know that you were doing wrong." But at present, I'll disregard that vague narrative and will continue thinking of it as our meteorological theme song of the moment.)

    Weyull (yes, its pronouncesd "wayullll")

    Found you again...and just in time!!

    Who knew, Toots and the Maytals, meteorologists! Sure beats listening to Brian Norcross!

    From the home of the Hurricanes... To the Big Easy I sure hope Isaac is as easy on y'all as can be...

    I left you a phone message on your home phone. After doing so I realized: You guys are 40!! Geez, I thought I was getting older.

    When you get some chill time, while the power is out, send me some pics of your wife, your kids and your cats... And your house, if it's intact !!

    By the way, I'm sure you know by now, you are an uncle! Sam is a Dad at 23! Yeeow!!

    As Rabbi Robert Zimmerman said: "The answer my friend is blowing in the wind, the answer is blowing in the wind.

    Wishing you guys all the best.
