Satellite photo of Hurricane Ivan, 2004

While I do love living near the ocean, one of the biggest blessings of our upcoming move is that we will no longer have to endure "hurricane season". For the first time in my life, I won't hang on every word of the weather man's lips. I won't check every fifteen minutes. How wonderful this will be!

In 2004, our city was devastated by Hurricane Ivan. I was six months pregnant with my first child. The next year, 2005, we were hit by another hurricane (both category 3). My daughter was six months old.

Here are some pictures of what Ivan did to our city. I will not miss these behemoths!
