A Note to Those in the Path of a Hurricane

A Note to Those in the Path of a Hurricane

As those in Texas are recovering from Hurricane Harvey, I hope and pray that those in the path of Hurricane Irma are safe. Being in the cone of a storm is always an anxious and tense time for everyone. No one talks about the emotional and mental state you go through during the preparations of a storm or how one feels after the storm has passed but I know because I went through Hurricane Andrew. Don’t let anyone tell you that you are overreacting. Whatever you feel is valid, just don’t let it overwhelm you. Those of us in the path of this hurricane will breathe more steadily after the storm when we know we did all we could to prepare. We can’t control what nature puts in our path but we can be at peace about the efforts we put forward to prevent what was within our control. Stay safe everyone.
