The power of a hurricane never ceases to amaze me. After Wilma in 2005 in the Keys, I will never underestimate a hurricane again. During the storm I was on the balconey in the Officer's Dining Room and a gust of wind almost took me over the railing and would have if I hadn't grabbed another officer standing next to me. Driving home from work after the storm we had to dodge large boats left on US 1.
My dad, I miss him every day.

The comments always amaze me...
Even in the face of such stark images of destruction and human tragedy, some must always seek to fingerpoint, insult, ridicule, and spew ignorance laced with venom.
That is perhaps the greatest tragedy of all, that rather than empathy and devotion to the human condition, there are so many who choose hatred, subversion, ill-will, and repugnance.
This nation will never fall to the devices of nature or external enemies, should it stumble, it will be at the snares of the ignorance and callousness of its own people.

Tell me not, Sweet, I am unkind,

To war and arms I fly. - Lovelace
