MOST RECENT

It was the summer of 1992, I was about to be a freshman in high school. Hurricane Andrew was not even supposed to be a direct hit, it took a turn. Although the eye of the storm hit like 30 miles from my home, it was the most frightening storm I lived through. Meteorologist, Brian Norcrosse was our knight in shining armor through the whole thing. I’ll never forget. #hurricaneandrew

A couple more, we didn’t get the flooding like the more recent hurricanes, but we got the most devastating winds. #hurricaneandrew

Are you Hurricane ready? Diesel and gas fuel storage tanks are large enough to store gas or diesel for days so u can get through the storm. One of the worst things that happens (before AND after) a hurricane is that it is hard to get fuel- before the storm people panic and buy up all the gas, while after the storm it’s simply too hard to get gas delivered to most gas stations in the affected areas. As a hurricane Andrew survivor (I went through the eye of the storm as a kindergartener at home) I learned the hard way to Be hurricane smart & hurricane ready #hurricanesmart #hurricaneready #florence #hurricanes #hurricaneflorence #hurricaneandrewsurvivor #isurvivedhurricaneandrew #hurricaneandrew #hurricane #theweatherchannel #nationalhurricanecenter #fuel #gas #diesel #homedepot #gasngo #stormy #florida #miami #pinecrest

There’s a story behind every forgotten piece. Ripples in the sand, pushed by fluid, in turn pushed by greater forces. Wind, currents, tide, gravity, storms are made. Time moves land around, the dome house reminding us where it once was.

My beloved Wrightsville Beach not even two weeks ago. I’m just grateful Flo looks like it will weaken some no matter where it hits, though devastation will still be felt by many. I’ve lived through a 5 (Andrew, 1992), and you think you know what something like a 4/5 will be if you’ve been through some hurricanes, but you don’t. I’ll never forget the sound of that wind. Ever. It screamed. 💔

To my friends in the Carolinas please be safe 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏 #hurricaneflorence looks a lot like #hurricaneandrew

You know your family has survived the worst kind of hurricane when your mother cross-stitches elaborate hurricane tracking maps. The pups and I evacuated, but my heart is in NC. Be safe, kids. Things are replaceable. People are not. #hurricaneseason #bewaremothernature #home #safety #besafe #momshouse #crossstitch #craftymom #hurricane #northcarolina #nc #hurricaneandrewsurvivor #hurricaneandrew

#takingitbacktuesday What looks like a thug is actually a post Hurricane Andrew pic. With a Cat 4 Florence on the way, I think of Katrina and Andrew and how wild things got afterwards. I remember during Andrew in Miami seeing 11 year olds with SKS's in front of business and homes with huge signs stating "YOU LOOT WE SHOOT". In those days I would actually follow the hurricanes path and hit beaches along the way for great surfing and boogie boarding! Anyhow, here's to a clean set of McLean's on a new Probe for #tbt #mcleanwirewheels #daytons #roadsterwirewheels #fordprobe #hurricaneandrew #hurricanekatrina #hurricaneflorence #miami #florida #mississippi #louisiana #neworleans #northcarolina #southcarolina #virginia #richmond #hurricaneprep #bodyinc #tropicalstormgaston #youlootweshoot #surfing #gypsy #nikeairraids #brickphone

My first volunteer event with @redhatinc! I really needed his today. As #hurricaneflorence approaches, these repressed feelings and memories from #hurricaneandrew are creeping in. I am still haunted by walking through the destruction of that. It fills me with fear and anxiety to face it again. But today, I was able to put that aside for some time and focus on improving literacy for the kids in North Carolina. It’s just proof that doing good for others lifts you up in return.

Y’all better get ready for Aunt Flo.🌪 .
.
Hurricanes can turn at any minute. .
.
I didn’t prepare for Katrina bc I thought she was hitting a whole other county which was an hour drive from my home. 😒 .
.
Well lil heffer dipped just hours before landfall and skirted super close to my house.😱 .
.
I watched out my unprotected windows as transformers blew up, my gate got torn down, and blue, purple, and green lightning flashed through all the windows. ⚡️
.
She was just a Cat 1 when she hit Florida and a 4 it 5 when she hit the gulf coast. .
.
I don’t play about no hurricanes. .
.
Definitely don’t be the person who tries to ride it out then have to be on the news crying. 🙅🏽‍♀️ .
.
Better safe than sorry. .
Be safe out there.

Ugh!!! A year has gone by, but we will never forget #Irma . This was the first time in my 40 years that I actually left my home & headed somewhere, anywhere but FL during a hurricane. This comparison of Andrew to Irma is really eye-opening!! That pretty much freaked me out. My husband & I packed up his truck w/whatever we could. Grabbed our dog and headed north. We went to stay with family in Georgia....and the b!t*h followed us!!! 😣 We were spared on the East coast. Sadly, our FL Keys didn't fare so well🙁 We headed back to FL & actually drove through what was left of Irma. That was quite the adventure!! Driving through a hurricane✔ Dodging debris & fallen trees on 95✔ Surviving Irma✔ Stopping to fill up our gas tank w/the cans of gas we brought with us✔ Having to pee on the side of the road✔😂😕 Everything was closed. People were stranded b/c they ran out of gas. 🙁 Came home to no power (for 3 days), but the only thing we lost was our shed. Oh, well. Praying that this season we don't get ANY hurricanes!!🙏 Florence looks iffy. And there are 3 more out there. Ugh!!!
