The waves are angry
Today the family went to Pensacola Beach to check out the incoming storm. Having lived in landlocked midwest all my life, I have never seen any kind of tropical storm in my life. I really wanted to see what the sea would look like, and I was impressed. I know this sounds weird, but I would love to see the waves with a hurricane approaching. I don't want the destruction of a hurricane, but I would like to see what it does to the water. I kept taking pictures because I was so mesmerized. I also saw my first jellyfish ever. I have seen tornadoes, blizzards, ice storms, and even a tiny dust storm. I am starting to feel like a Floridian. I want to go back during the weekend to see how large the waves are then which makes me feel like a tourist. I can't help it. This stuff fascinates me. I know that the storms cause massive problems and damage which is horrible, but I guess the scientist in me loves to see it develop and watch it move. I like to look outside when the tornado sirens go off to see the rotation. What can I say? I am a science nerd.
