|Harley and Teri at Mendenhall Glacier|
When Harley and I returned from vacation, Beverly, Stephen’s mom and I were to fly to Las Vegas to celebrate Kelly and Stephen saying their I do’s, very romantic and exciting stuff.
Two days later Beverly and I took the red eye home with Jet Blue, each seat had a television. We watched as Katrina now a Category 5 storm neared the coast, listening to the weather reports all night long, my stomach was in knots, I saw the devastation of Hurricane Andrew in 1992 another Category 5 hurricane. At one point in our trip the pilot told us that a few hundred miles to our south the storm was close to hitting the coast. As I look back five years later I still can not believe what happened, we were so close yet so far removed.
As we celebrated the promise and the commitment, we prayed for those who lived and died with Katrina.
