Lord, protect us from God

Commenting on the incoming hurricane, the President appealed to Our Savior.
"I told all four governors the people of this country are praying for their safety," Bush said Wednesday. "We pray that the storm passes as quickly as possible without any loss of life or loss of property."
No loss of life is, perhaps, an achievable goal given enough preparation. But no loss of property? Didn't God send the hurricane to begin with? Doesn't it seem part of His plan to tear off a few roofs at least?

This "pray & it's OK" idea seems oddly familiar. I remember some talk a while back that seemed wildly, even weirdly optimistic in the face of available evidence ... what was that about ... some Middle East venture, I think.
