I posted this on Ravelry, so forgive the cross-post.
DH and I were talking about how we sometimes miss hurricanes if we don't have one in a while.
I think it's because, growing up poor, hurricanes were a time to get the whole family together. Usually there was only one member of the extended family who had a nice enough house that everyone would be safe in.
We would all get together, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and usually spend the night or a few days, depending on if the electricity was out.
We would all hunker down in the living room on a mattress, because there was usually only one hurricane lamp and it stayed in the living room. We'd listen to the radio and watch channel four news until the power went out. If we were lucky, we'd get a few days off of school.
Does anyone else have sort of nice hurricane memories?
