While Lily is very beautiful and impressive to those of us who follow hurricanes yr. after yr., I am very disturbed by the significant damage and probable loss of life Lily will cause today.
A few weeks ago someone on the board compared hurricanes to nascar racing. You want the speed, the intensity and the crashes, but then, you hold your breath hoping no one has died.
I watched individuals in the LA area being interviewed today on television. Some were even smiling, having never personally experiencing a hurricane passing over them, let alone a stage 4 hurricane. I was shocked and stunned to hear some of these individuals stating that they had decided to stay at home and were not going to evacuate. For those who refused to evacuate and take the direct hit from this storm, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
If they don't believe in a higher entity now, they will when Lily hits.
