As I write this, Hurricane Dorian is bearing down on North Carolina. It occurred to me earlier today as I was shopping for survival supplies that people in NC don't need meteorologists to forecast the weather -- just flip flops and a grocery store. One inch of snow: your toes are cold and there's no bread or milk. Category 5 hurricane: your toes are wet and there's no beer or wine.
