Greetings from Gladstone! I arrived with both my best horses on the East Coast of America just in time to experience our first hurricane. But as I sit here waiting for the last drizzles of Hurricane Irene to subside, I realize that I have seen the likes of her all over the world even though she is normally referred to as a rainstorm with some wind. A bit anti-climatical, this hurricane thing. Lets be thankful for that!
