I am a bit of a weather nerd. I follow the NOAA weather, the local news weather that I think to be the best, and the K-Mart of weather The Weather Channel. So yeah sometimes I am more guilty of following the weather than the news. I remember Hurricane Katrina too well. It happen not long after Aaron was born. I remember watching news in the middle of the night while nursing the baby and after a while I had to stop watching because I would be sobbing half the day because of postpartum hormones. I followed the stories after a while the whole thing was a complete tragedy.
This time I have been following the storm for weeks hoping it would miss land. It didn’t and poor New Orleans got hit again.. I check in a few times a day hoping the storm has passed and people made the choice to get out of the way. I can’t stop thinking about how horrible it will be for those who lost everything in Katrina to loose it all again. My heart is with everyone in the Gulf Coast States.
