Spitting in Hannah's eye

All is silent, save the sirens of the occasional emergency vehicle. My roommates are both off gallivanting, Violet and I are holding down the fort. The map suggests we will get another pass of rain and wind when Hannah's eye passes us by.
All in all it's been fairly mild here. Hopefully it will stay that way.

beged kefet

So, I start TAing Hebrew tomorrow. One of the things I'll cover in section is the Beged Kefet letters, the letters that take dageshes. I vaguely remembered that Beged Kefet meant something in Hebrew.
After looking these words up I think "cloth hand" might be an accurate translation... Glove perhaps?

An improved version of the previous map

An alternative history in geographic form

I guess after becoming hooked on Strange Maps I thought I'd create a strange map of my own.

Where I drove

I thought it might be cool to post a map of my great migration from North Dakota back to Philadelphia.
Also, here is my last two weeks in map form, though the second leg of the trip was done via the air.

And Moore said something stupid about the hurricane too

Lutherpunk reminds me that trivializing people's lives during disaster is a sad non-partisan thing.

Focus on the Family slips up?

So, considering that rain of biblical proportions is disrupting the REPUBLICAN National Convention maybe some conservative Christians should stop tempting and toying with God!
Just a thought.
