Some people say that living on the beach is a pleasure. This is true, but only when you are visiting the beach. Anyone who owns a beach house knows that though the view and area may be welcoming the weather can be unpredictable and fierce. My family has experienced this first hand as we have last through at least three different hurricanes. The most recent one was the worst. To begin with the hurricane itself didn’t seem like it was going to hit us too bad, so my father prepared the beach house in a usual manner. He turned off all the power including the A/C and humidifier and then placed sandbags around the windows and doors to ensure no flooding would occur. It wasn’t until a few hours before the hurricane hit that we realized the hurricane had shifted and was headed right towards our beach house. My mother and father were quite distraught because they worried that the weather would actually take out the house. The hurricane quickly passed and my father again ventured out to the beach house to check up on everything, however, before even reaching the beach house he had hit a difficult situation. The entire streets had been shut down as many power lines and electric companies had been hit so there wasn’t a way to get past the fallen cables. My father quickly called our neighbor to see if he could check on the house. It turns out we were lucky and when our neighbor turned on our power just to check and the A/C started up right away. He then told us how jealous he was because his house was without power and the thick humid air was causing his home to get very uncomfortable. My father told him he’s more than welcome to stay at the beach house and use our A/C and humidifier until his power came on.
