Hurricane Andrew Anniversary
      #48859 - Tue Aug 23 2005 08:08 PM

13 years ago, tonight, I remember going to sleep to, at that time, a virtual unknown. With all the windows tightly covered, the house was dark and bleak. An ominous tension was most certainly noticeable as my parents tucked me into bed.

I was woken up early the next morning by what is still perhaps the most awesome and frightening experience of my young life.

Andrew made landfall at approximately 5:00 am on August 24, tomorrow. As you all know, it was the costliest hurricane in recorded history. So this week carries a duality for me… we shall be remembering one storm, and preparing for another, albeit one infinitely non comparable to the absolute horror experienced both during and after Andrew. I will write up a few paragraphs depicting my experience when I have time tomorrow.

EDIT: Mods, you can just change the image to a url if need be. I wanted the image for dramatic purposes, but do whatever you need to.
