Today the clouds moved quickly. We had a strong, cool breeze. The clouds were dark and different looking. As the day progressed the wind picked up. In 3 and a half years of living here we have witnessed one tropical storm...Tropical Storm Debby. And here were starting to experience our second one already. I am glad the storm has turned towards the west a little bit more but I am still scared. I am still worried. I have not let my guard down. I will not let my guard down. I have my emergency kit ready to go. I have amazing neighbors who have a generator for their fridge I can put my food in if needed. I have gas in my truck and clean clothes I could pack. But what I don't have....is my husband. He left yesterday to evacuate the planes from the base and will be gone until the storm subsides. The storm has even forced the RNC to cancel day 1 and day 2...which is actually good because riots have already started. All of the schools are cancelled tomorrow. Little Miss' therapy office is closed tomorrow.
I just want to feel safe. Safe from the storm. Safe from harm. Safe from worry. I really dread deployment more now than ever before.
