So much has happened in the last few weeks…
The Mid-Atlantic States have been jolted by a 5.8 earthquake,
The entire Eastern Seaboard has been pelted by wind, rain and storm surge of Hurricane Irene,
Our nation is still reeling from the effects of the hottest July on record,
A wide-spread, devastating drought lingers in the mid-South,
Which in itself has contributed to fires that have consumed vast swaths of land and hundreds of homes.
