Hurricane Recovery

"Sea," cried King Canute, "I command you to come no further! Waves, stop your rolling!. Surf, stop your pounding! Do not dare touch my feet!" 

When a storm floods a muskrat's burrow the wise semi-aquatic rodent looks to rebuild his den on drier ground. When a human's home is inundated by a hurricane he look into ways to move the ocean.

Such is the difference between man and the lesser animals. Animals realize they are animals and adapt. Man thinks he is a god and with hubris behaves like a stupid brute.
