Isaac

I have a fabulous post that I finished last night, however, I'll post it in a bit because I'd like to write about this soon-to-be hurricane that's headed our way.  I'd also like to take a moment to remember my good friend Dane, who was killed during Hurricane Jeanne in September 2004.  I will never forget that moment. As I was sitting in the living room of my house, with my family and no power, I received a phone call around 8:00 in the evening from Diana. I answered the phone to Diana's tears, to which she immediately spoke "Dane died..." That was the first time I had experienced someone close to me passing away.  I later found out that Dane went outside briefly during the category three  storm while he was at his friend's house. A giant oak branch had split off and fallen on him, crushing him. Unfortunately, the immediate rescuers didn't understand the concept of crush injuries and Dane passed.
So, not only are we expecting a hurricane, my family in Japan are expecting a double hit from two major hurricanes within the next few days. Patrick and I literally have part of the Santa Rosa sound that backs up underneath our deck, so it's pretty likely that we're going to flood. This should be FUN! I'm spending the day prepping and stocking up, but I will likely add pictures later and also add the other post. <3
