The Wake Up Call Part .3

Continued From Part .2

…I was suddenly awakened by a loud banging noise against the side of house, the wind had really picked up steam and I had to go to work in a couple hours.

As I laid there I couldn’t believe how loud the wind was getting , the gusts were impressive and my mind raced to the night before when we were awakened by the mysterious loud boom.

I was beginning to think I wasn’t going to get much rest in 2012 , only 2 days into it and I was already experiencing sleep deprivation, which I don’t like at all , there was more banging noises outside and I decided to just get up.

When I got to the door I open it and looked out over the deck and could hardly believe how hard the wind was blowing. The giant pine trees on our property were bending and moving in the wind likes blades of grass, the sound was almost deafening.

The lights flickered a bit and I started to worry about loosing power. I turned on my laptop and got on the internet to look at the weather forecast and the satellite images to see what had hit us.

It was the typical pattern coming out the pacific , ofter referred to as the Pineapple express, although this river of wind and moisture stretched for over 4  thousand miles , I had never seen anything like it.

As I looked at the satellite images I had a feeling in my gut that said we were goign to get hammered. I made some coffee and headed out the door to batten down the hatches , and make sure everything was secure.

As I made my rounds around the property the wind had reached a point that was approaching hurricane speeds, and  I knew that we were in for some sort of unprecedented event, I could just feel it.

Everything felt strange , unreal, I didn’t feel like I was inside my body , the last  48 hours were perhaps the strangest most exhilarating moments in my life and things looked like they were just getting started.

As the morning wore on, the winds increased to 80 mph with gusts topping 100 mph and Hanna and Henry were both becoming increasingly nervous and frightened.
