"It is the unhappy fate of the scientist today that he must play the role of Cassandra in the body politic, sending his fellow men to bed with nightmares in the hope to be heard in time."

Actually, last October had almost as bad storms where I used to live, and Mt Rainier Nat'l Park staff is still cleaning up the destruction, where ~15-20 in of rain fell in ~ two days.

Best,
