How am I? Pretty good for a Monday morning.
Eleven years ago, today, I was wide awake, getting ready for work. The wind outside made the most awful howl.
Before my first cup of coffee, the power went off.
Hurricane Katrina arrived–earlier than expected. The wind blew all day. Trees bent, limbs, sticks, and trash blew across front lawns. There wasn’t much rain.
My boss called, “Don’t come in to work today. We won’t be open.” Who would be foolish enough to be out on a day like this, I thought.
Reports, from New Orleans, and Mississippi were unbelievable. Katrina split the difference, made landfall on the Mississippi, Louisiana state line.
So, considering what happened eleven years ago–I’m pretty good for a Monday.
