21. So sorry for the victims, for the loss

But regarding armed people refusing to evacuate, what charming and innovative ways they invent to go over the cliff.

In 1998, we endured the first derecho we'd ever heard of. My husband and I collected for years, and had a lot of (to us) valuable things on display and suddenly in harm's way. I grabbed some boxes and newspapers to start wrapping things, and had the insight that the stuff wasn't going to be safe, even if i frantically wrapped it and got it to the basement. With the insight, came resignation. And after another derecho, and other severe weather, I accept that I would be lucky to escape with my life, let alone a few pieces of glass.
