Dodgeing two storms
In the last month, we dodged two massive storms here in Miami. Katrina's eye went right over us. I stood at my kitchen window on the 24th floor and watched the flare of bright blue/green lights as transformers blew out all over Miami and Ft. Lauderdale. So, Rita side-swipped us as she needled the Florida Straights and headed into the Gulf.
I'm deeply grateful that I didn't have to pull out the hurricane provisions or evacuate our coastal tower, but I'm deeply afraid for our family in Texas. Their homes in Houston are in danger. One brother says he wants to stay and protect his property from looters, another called from the highway as he sits in the parking lot that the highway north has become.
It seems puny to say "God bless them..."
