You do what you can to avoid the worst; take precautions and put in your efforts.
You worry about your family, your property. At the end of it, as the winds pick up and the effects start to show up on TV, you watch.
Maybe it won’t be as bad as they expect. You say.
Maybe it will turn. You hope.
The talking heads on news channel thrive on destruction and change.
Eventually as the destruction starts to loop on the TV, you turn in for the night.
The worst always happens once its deep night.
In the morning, you’ll get on the net to check out how bad it was.
There are loses and things saved. There are things that will need patching.
Eventually it all goes back to normal; the world finds a way to cope with changes,
Strong and able to absorb the worst, at least for now, little will seem different.
Life goes on.
Election day 2010.
