Hurricane Ophelia and Robbie Robertson

AI generated story: "Tropical Storm Ophelia formed on Friday afternoon [September 22, 2023] and quickly strengthened close to hurricane strength1. The storm is set to drench the East Coast this weekend, bringing heavy rain in addition to strong gusty winds, rough surf, and coastal flooding1. Tropical storm warnings are in effect from Cape Fear, N.C., to the Delaware-Maryland border on the Delmarva Peninsula, with storm surge warnings blanketing a similar area1.

The National Hurricane Center reported that tropical storm conditions have the possibility of developing over portions of the U.S. southeast and mid-Atlantic coasts2. The storm will bring danger of life-threatening storm surge, high surf, and rip currents to the mid-Atlantic3. More than 7 million people are under tropical storm warnings as of Friday afternoon3.

Please stay safe and follow the instructions of local authorities."

One of my favorites, Ophelia by The Band. If I had a middle age crush, it was Robbie Robertson.  He died in August, 2023. Robbie Robertson, guitarist and songwriter of The Band, dead at 80 - YouTube

"Ophelia" is a song written by Robbie Robertson that was first released by The Band on their 1975 album Northern Lights – Southern Cross. It was the lead single from the album. It has also appeared on several of the group's live and compilation albums, and has been covered by such artists as Vince Gill and My Morning Jacket.The video was directly taken from the film "The Last Waltz" directed by Martin Scorzese. Good vision!
