For the people of North Carolina and South Carolina, Hurricane Florence was an epic disaster that is still going on. But for those who were feverishly preparing in nearby states because they were warned to expect torrential rains and high winds in the days following landfall, they were shocked – and some expressed feeling silly – when the much-touted weather event did not occur. It’s a strange feeling when you prepare for a disaster and nothing happens.
First, let me be perfectly clear: no one wants a disaster to occur. We prep because we want to keep our families safe and we want to protect our property. But this is about how we feel when Mother Nature cries wolf and those around us say, “I told you so.”
