This year's hurricane season is supposed to be a "doozy" - or, in other words, "worse than normal." Those are the latest predictions coming from the National Weather Service.
As a Red Cross volunteer, those words are ominous...
As a Red Cross volunteer, those words mean that I should probably start gathering my supplies and equipment out from the basement; blow the dust off; and get it all organized.
As a Red Cross volunteer, those words mean that I may have a busier-than-normal summer and perhaps shouldn't plan too many vacations. Dang it.
I hope they're wrong. I pray they're wrong.
I guess we'll see.
But...in the meantime...I'm getting ready. And if you live in a hurricane-prone area, I hope you're getting ready.
