Irene as Retribution?

So suggests this rather curiously executed You Tube video, featuring someone who must be a failed American Idol contestant.  Note that it highlights the role of the North in the transAtlantic slave trade.

I think this video serves as retribution on several levels.  It also serves as a point of departure to discuss the role of weather in affecting Civil War operations, including the Mud March, the rain on July 4 at Gettysburg, and the storm that resulted in the sinking of the USS Monitor.  What other examples can you think of?
