…a gift from the weather gods.
When Hurricane Ike put our lives on hold in September 2008 we celebrated the simplicity. We dined with neighbors, sharing our food and resources. We read, because there was no TV or internet. We went outside, because there was nothing to keep us inside. We cleaned up our yard, because it was messy! It was wonderful. Today, we look back at Hurricane Ike as a gift from the weather gods.
The other night we dropped everything we were doing to sit outside on the curb and watch Zeus battle it out with Odin in the clouds above our neighborhood. The only sounds we heard were the crickets and the occasional passing car. However, the sky put on a show for us that is well worth sharing. Enjoy!
