"Good Day Irene" [Published 08/29/11]
It must be stressed that this is a local (Alexandria, VA) cartoon. While other cities and states, may have suffered more damage from Hurricane Irene, in Alexandria she was little more than any drizzly day. Never-the-less, we prepared for the worst including stocking up on food, water, batteries. And, stood in lines to get sandbags. A more disruptive natural phenomenon had taken place a few weeks earlier when a 5.9 earthquake shook the area.
