This one brought out flashbacks to 1989 Hugo which came directly at us. Ian came directly at us in SCarolina, too. There wasn't as much devastation as FL, but I was triggered with the nightmares of Hugo the day after coming home from burying my maternal Grandpa "Pap".
I was filled with all the grief, dread & fear of the unknown about hurricanes all over again.
This past 4 days have been very difficult.
It will take some time to edit the minimal damages & changes to my memory this time. I am battling those earlier known emotions with how much easier this Ian was to navigate....even though I was waiting for the worst.
