Sides Of The Sea

“There was a magic about the sea. People were drawn to it. People wanted to live by it, swim in it, play in it, look at it. It was a living thing that as unpredictable as a great stage actor: it could be calm and welcoming, opening its arms to embrace its audience one moment, but then could explode with its stormy tempers, flinging people around, wanting them out, attacking coastlines, breaking down islands…” ~Cecelia Ahern

It always amazes me how beautiful the ocean can be at one moment and how angry and aggressive it can turn the next. Nothing more surprising and sad than to realize the destruction from these horrific storms that come out of the water. Really a “Jekyll and Hyde” of characters is hidden within the sea.

By now most people are aware of this huge hurricane name “Matthew” that has and continues to devastate thee Atlantic. From Cuba, Haiti and the Bahamas, now headed for The States. Florida soon to be hit by a Category 3 to 4, many evacuated or in evacuation mode. Truly a scary event and the worst to hit since 2005.

Living on the coastline of South Carolina, our family has been in preparation for the past few days. Buying water, non-perishable foods, filling gas and propane tanks, as well as buying batteries. Today Hubby and Son have worked on getting the hurricane shutters in place and all lawn items have been moved indoors. They will soon be helping a neighbor do the same.

Thankfully we are outside thee evacuation zones that have been set for our area. These zones are due to not just one’s proximity to the ocean, but also the sea level. We are prayerful that by the time it gets to our area on Saturday it will be a “Category 2” or even less. Next will just be to ‘hunker down’ and perhaps some family board games or movie marathons (if we don’t lose power).

So much unpredictability, such is the way of weather and the sea.
