Waiting out Hurricane Irma

Birmingham, Alabama is a beautiful town. The architecture and old buildings constructed in the early and mid 1900’s are amazing to look at. It’s an old steel industry town with railroads, smoke stacks, old bottling companies, factories and lots of history.

I don’t really know much about it and honestly never thought I would find myself here — but here I am. Although the people are friendly and kind, and I want to find a way to enjoy this visit I really can’t. I’m really only here because of Hurricane Irma. I’m currently waiting for her to pass through my world and praying that she leaves the most important parts of my life intact and safe from her wrath.

I need my family and my friends and my neighbors to survive Irma. I can’t imagine it any other way.
