Scary Things #6
This one is about a hurricane.
At this time we had two daughters, Dana (3) and a 2 month old Lisa. I'd flown from L.A. to Maryland to meet my husband who was now stationed in Little Creek, VA.
Together, we drove down to Virginia while at the same time a hurricane was coming from the other direction. Hubby found a motel for us on Hampton Roads (which later we learned was the possible path of the hurricane.) He left to report into the base.
He didn't come back. (Later I learned because of the hurricane he was ordered to stay.)
Oh, my. I had no food for us to eat. I don't really remember all the details of that night, here is what I do remember.
The rain and wind got worse and worse.
I learned we, along with one maid and the manager, were the only ones in this motel. I had to get us something to eat. (I had formula and bottles for the baby but that was all.) The maid, who of course I didn't know) stayed with my little ones while I headed for a grocery store. I could hardly walk in the wind. I bought a can of soup and a box of crackers and made my way back.
The manager loaned me a pot, two bowls, spoons, and a one burner stove. I made Dana and I soup, and used the pot after to heat up the bottles I needed.
The maid stayed with us in our room, she was scared too, all through that wild night.
Hubby was able to come and get us the next morning.
That's all I remember about that time.
