My parents had been warning me about the hurricane since earlier in the week. I was not very scared or worried because I thought everyone was making a big deal about the hurricane. I felt as if, if I could go thru Hurricane Katrina I could go thru anything. Around Wednesday and Thursday you could tell people were actually worried about Irene and taking all necessary precautions to prepare for the storm, and I was starting to get a little scared. Irene was suppose to really affect Virginia, and that's where our tournament was suppose to be.
I was very happy once we got the text about there being no tournament because I don't believe in playing with mother nature. I would rather miss a volleyball tournament then, have a missing player, or anything bad happening.
