My new peeve is people who pray for hurricanes

    I can't understand why someone would hope for a hurricane in order to get more work.  I hear it often.  Landscapers, roofers, construction worker, etc.  The economy is not good here in Florida and people are desperate for jobs.  Wishing for destruction is not very nice.  People suffer, property gets damaged, lights go out.

    Praying for destruction so one can gain from repairs is appalling.

    However, there are two related issues re hurricanes.  Sometimes something has to be destroyed in order for healthy renewal to occur, but that's rather vague for this topic--more pertinent, people in some of the islands sometimes pray for large storms/small hurricanes because without them they have no source of fresh water.  It's interesting to think it all through...

      That would be the time to remind them of the possible irony of losing their business to hurricane damage.
