Calm Before The Storm

It’s supposed to be a sunny, hot, day today and I hope to get to the beach for a last hurrah.  Sunday we’ll have a most unwelcome guest in Hurricane Irene and I am hoping that the hype and anticipation are worse than the event.  I need to secure what I can and make sure we have enough batteries and water in case power is knocked out for a few days, but outside of that, there is nothing we can do but wait.

I’m grateful to live in a time when storms can be predicted fairly well in advance, but only the aftermath will tell the truth. I’m remembering Hurricane Andrew‘s devastation on Homestead, Florida in 1992, and while Irene is as large a mass, I don’t think the winds are as strong.  Hurricane Katrina, was so incredibly devastating, but more because of weak levees and the criminal action (or non-action) in the aftermath.  Flooding is the direst warning at this point, so we’ll see what happens.
