Well, that was stressful. I'm still not sure how I managed to get through the day yesterday. Although I don't require a lot of sleep, I do need more than the two hours worth Sunday night which followed the three of Saturday. I should probably thank the folks at Red Bull for the needed energy to make it to the lunch hour, and the cafe around the corner for the espresso to get me through the rest of Monday. At this point (Monday afternoon), I'm having trouble stringing together sentences, so this will be brief.
After following the storm all night and morning, I tore myself away from the TV and computer but carried my xm portable to work where I listened to the live streams from CNN, MSNBC, and Fox. I'm actually glad I couldn't see what was going on. The audio descriptions were frightening enough. I nearly lost it when I heard the reports that downtown Mobile was flooded.
I am happy to report that my family made it through the storm without damage. Mom claims that her stress level has been downgraded to a Category 2. Three times now in the last year they've had to board up the windows. Let's hope it's the last.
