I thought for sure I would be swimming up to the mountain like a logger this morning. They had been saying, worst case scenario, of course, that a 50 foot swell could come ashore.
It didn't happen.
Then again, I'm like wow, all that destruction, a woman dead an hour away from flying debris, and not even a limb down in my neighborhood......
We saw tornadoes blow through here that were scarier.
Yet, I'm thankful, but I sit back and wonder why all the hype to get everyone going when there really wasn't a significant danger here?! I stocked and stressed, listening to the professionals tell us to take it serious... and for what?! A what if, that's what.
While I'm glad we only had this all day:
I'm disappointed in the local media for all the hype.
I'll continue praying for the US who definitely didn't come out unscathed. My heart and prayers are with the families of those lost. For the damage done and the hard times ahead.
May God give you patience and strength.
