California has survived many disasters: the San Francisco earthquake, the Loma Prieta quake, mudslides too numerous to mention, droughts, Med-fly invasions, budget crises, and Schwarzenegger. Now comes news of another existential threat bearing down on the Left Coast: Superstorms.
Scientists fear that the state may be due for a massive winter storm that could flood a quarter of the state's homes, cost 300-400 billion dollars, and ultimately cause more damage than the most powerful of earthquakes. Scientific models suggest that the storm could last for forty days and inundate the Golden State with more than ten feet (yes, feet!) of water.
The Solipsist has begun pairing off the cats and disguising them as other animals so as to ensure them spots on the Ark.
