A Matter of Perspective

Two old farmers are having a drop of the nourishing nectar* in the pub when the tele starts up with a story about the hurricanes and tornadoes in Florida.

After watching in silence while pictures of devastation flash before them, one turns to the other as the story ends and says: "At least they are getting plenty of rain..."

[Ed: On a more serious note, our prayers are with the people of the Caribbean and South East US as they face yet another violent storm.]

[* i.e. Beer]
