Must see: Comparison photo of typhoon "Haiyan” to "Katrina"



http://knowmore.washingtonpost.com/2013/11/07/oh-no-haiyan-the-super-typhoon-about-to-hit-the-philippines-is-even-bigger-than-katrina/

It really shows the intensity of Haiyan.

My heart's with all the folks being hit by this.

A group of 4 raccoons tried to get my neighbor's cat.

I stepped outside about 20 minutes ago and saw my neighbor's outdoor cat surrounded by 4 raccoons in the middle of the street. The cat is very large, but all 4 raccoons were larger than he was. They were about a foot from the cat on all 4 sides and the cat was puffed up and ready to fight.

I started walking toward them while clapping my hands to make a lot of noise. One by one, they scattered away. I stood out there for several minutes to make sure the cat was okay, then came back inside for a flashlight and broom. I scanned the area and there was no sign of them. I stayed outside another 10 minutes.

I didn't know this until I just looked it up, but raccoons will eat cats if they are hungry enough. My heart is still racing, but I'm so glad I was able to scare them off. I hope they don't come back.
