It was scary for a while but Sandy came and went, and we survived.
I knew it was going to be a bad day. I felt it in the air. It upset me that my mom and my dad left that morning anyway. It frustrated me that they cannot feel the impending danger that I felt. I was so happy when my mom finally got home that when she stooped down to kiss me I knocked her over and sat on top of her and whined. She is usually off limits to rough play, but I couldn’t help it. She needs to know that there is danger and it is better to be inside. She was so surprised she just laughed and kissed me.
I felt so relieved when my dad finally came home. I knocked him over and sat on him too. The good thing about Sandy was my mom and my dad got the afternoon off I get to spend time with them. We just watched movies all afternoon. The wind and rain were so strong going out to pee was not fun, but I had to do it.
That night my mom and my dad got bored so we took a ride in the car just to see how Main Street Beacon was. It was deserted! And Beacon Falls was so full it was impressive.
We thought we were going to lose power, but we didn’t. Long Dock Park is underwater, but nobody was harmed. My mom and my dad went back to work today.
We are blessed.
Life Lesson: Count your blessings.
