The Drive to Safety

 For the second time in 15 months, Bil has had to evacuate in advance of a storm.  They aren't in danger of flooding where they live, but they are prone to power failures.  And, I even worry that a tree could fall on their house.

Now here comes Tropical Storm Sandy, with thousands and thousands of people evacuating.

Bil, is safe - I hope - with a relative.  His mother is there too and at the very least they will have company in case anything does happen.

Now I can rest a little easier.

But how many times is this going to happen?  As a long distance caretaker for Bil (my role more like an advocate right now) and my mother in law, who is in her 80's,  and global warming, this seems to be happening more and more.

I am so grateful he doesn't have to be in an evacuation shelter.  I dread the thought of a man with autism having to be in one of those places.

Now let's hope everything stays OK in the tri-state area.
