365 Day Blog Challenge - Day 192

Ever been in a hurricane?

I was born and raised in Southwest Louisiana. So, yes! 

I remember bits and pieces of them growing up, but the 2 that will forever stick out in my mind was 2005. 

August 23rd, 2005
Hurricane Katrina made landfall in the New Orlean's area. It was a category 5 and it was very bad. 

September 18th, 2005
Hurricane Rita made landfall on the border of Texas and Louisana. This was also a category 5 hurricane and it was bad as well. 

My mom and I evacuated to Baton Rouge and stayed with my cousin for about 11 days during Rita. My dad stayed back and hung out at work to make sure the plant was okay after it hit. 

Hurricane's are not any fun. They are scary and dangerous and every season, I pray for my family and friends if they are in their paths. I pray for all those effected by these horrible storms.
