Of all the things, this is one of the least notable things, but I'm still trying to wrap my head around "This is a tough hurricane, one of the wettest we've seen from the standpoint of water."

Don't worry, though: Sir Paul McCartney's new album has a song about climate change on it, so at least ... uh, at least we'll be able to listen to shitty music as the environment turns ever more deadly. From the standpoint of water.
