Within a few days, that tropical wave had raced in an almost beeline shot across the Atlantic Ocean, quickly becoming a Tropical Depression; then soon after, became Tropical Storm Amanda - the first storm of the 2009 season as she came within a few hundred miles of the Dominican Republic.
Then Amanda exploded and went from a small Tropical Storm to a Category Five hurricane in a matter of thirty-six hours.
Immediately the radio blared forth with yet another news report about the approach of Hurricane Amanda and the mass exodus going on all around me.
Having been raised along the Gulf Coast, hurricanes are nothing new to me. My name is Audrey Thompson and I was born in Cameron, Louisiana on June 27, 1957; the very day that Hurricane Audrey made landfall right on top of us.
Try riding out a hurricane like Andrew when you're nine months pregnant and have two other young children in the house with you.
After my husband and I divorced in June of 2005, I moved to New Orleans to live with my sister Carla for a while with my then fifteen year old daughter Wendy.
I went back to school at LSU and finished my bachelor's and got my masters in architecture.
In 2007, I moved back to Houston with a wonderful job opportunity and in less than a year, bought my own house in the far northwest suburbs and was once again facing down another fucking hurricane: Ike!
I wiped the driving sweat off my face and forehead with the hand towel wrapped around my neck as I stepped up to my Lexus and disengaged the alarm.My husband and I had been divorced for nearly four years, all three of my children were either grown and gone or away visiting their father for the summer and I hadn't gotten a good piece of ass in what seemed like decades. And as if all this weren't enough, Mother Nature seemed to be suffering from a serious case of PMS herself.Even though the sun was shining bright and there wasn't a cloud in the sky at the moment, the breeze was starting to pick up.Amanda quickly regained hurricane strength as she crawled menacingly over the very warm waters of the Gulf and is now packing winds of nearly 140 miles per hour as she is taking dead aim at the upper Texas coast. In fact many of the so-called experts are calling her the Perfect Storm or the Storm of the Century.Okay, but just how many Perfect Storms or Storms of the Century can there be?
