Hurricane Florence - "Storm of a Lifetime"
Another hurricane season is here!
Living on the East Coast as I do, I dread hurricane season.
I live in southern Delaware, on the East coast, two miles from the Atlantic Ocean.
A few years ago we just missed Hurricane Sandy by fifty miles. Sandy took an unexpected turn just as she was bearing down on Sussex County, where I live. Phew! Missed that one.
It is known here that we are due for the Big One. Thank God that hasn't happened yet. We are very vulnerable though, all flat coastal land here.
I feel guilty when I admit I was somewhat relieved when I saw that Hurricane Florence was veering away from traveling up the East Coast and slamming the Delaware coast.
Hurricane Florence is predicted to hit the Carolina coast Saturday morning. I hope (I don't pray) that the damage is minimal and there is no loss of life for those in Florence's path.
