How does one prepare for a storm? Besides hunkering down with groceries, flashlights, and plenty of water, we are advised to stay inside, listen to weather advisories, and not drive.
I planned to do the opposite on Monday morning. I would spend the day outside, seeking meaning from those who enjoy standing at the edge of seawalls during major storms, deep in thought. Perhaps they could explain what draws them to the edge of catastrophe. I also planned to speak with those whose lives would change during the day. Some who had power in the morning and would later be sitting in darkness. Or replaying the moment a tree crashed into their house.
