Well, Irene was serious and a lot of damage was done. But it didn’t implicate any symbols of 9/11, as might have been the case if, say, the current World Trade Center site was significantly damaged. Also, we are now still 11 days from the exact anniversary.
My inclination, therefore, is to think that something else is going to happen to mark the 10-year anniversary. It would be in the nature of beginning some longer term motion of some kind. It could be a weather event or a man-made event and doesn’t have to be terrorist or war-related, but it would presumably be something negative.
So I’m not sure we are out of the woods yet. +JAG
