The Calm Before the Storm

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.

  1. oh honey. I just want to give you a hug right now...I'm not totally sure what to say or how to say it to make you feel better, except....you aren't alone, and you are perfectly justified in how you feel, just keep going- no matter how hard or scary. You've got this.
