I feel the need to blog about this damn hurricane that is now beginning to show it's ugly face on the coast. Hopefully, we're far enough inland to avoid the "catastrophic damage" the news has been predicting. We are however under a tornado watch until Monday night. Are we safe from the hurricane? yes and no. Though our area has not been asked to evacuate, many homes are boarded up, grocery stores and gas stations are empty, the freeways are gridlocked, and the icecream truck just drove down my street! WTH? Ok, now THAT was surreal.
There is just something so somber about all of this. It's as though we're watching a really bad trainwreck in slow motion...a 36 hour trainwreck, and there's nothing you can do about it until the damage has been done and you can go in and repair it. We'll probably be without power and water for a day or two (quite possibly longer), but we have the things we need. (At least, I think we do. We've never been through a hurricane before.)
I'm fed up with the anticipation of it all.
Hell hath no fury like mother nature.
Katrina, bring it on...Bitch.
