This reminds me a lot of Katrina. The way you describe how you felt & how it affected you... In the waning moments of the storm, basically at the point where I knew she'd done her worst & was on her way north, I felt like a god. I felt invincible. I went outside shortly after the water receded & the storm was actually still going on & at some point it occurred to me that this wasn't quite over but then I noticed a LOT of people had reacted as I did by the water going away & had also gone outside. We were all like, "YES-! HAHAHAHAHA-! Take THAT, you bitch-! WE'RE STILL HERE-!"

It was very strange. But I think it is true, as you describe about yourself in your post, that I would not be in the situation I am in today without Katrina. She changed everything.
