Hurricane Gustav, September 2008
It's June 1st, the first day of hurricane season. You see, hurricane season never ends here really. We hear about the storms of the year before all through the winter and spring, then it starts back up again. The storms are bad enough, but it's all the "evacuation, shelter, sand bag, batteries, bottled water, generator, etc etc" talk that wears me down. And the heat when the power goes out. And having to clean up the yard. Last year the day after the storm, our friends were outside cleaning up leaves! The power wasn't even back on yet. There's no way I was going to work my butt off outside, only to have to go inside of a sweltering hot house. I guess I allow myself to think about these things instead of the pure destruction that a storm can cause and the havoc it brings to people's lives. Way too scary. So I bitch about power and having to eat cold ravioli and PB&J and being bored out of my mind, and sound ungrateful for the good luck we've had. Sigh. Here we go again, until November 30th...
