I learned something about myself last night. Despite my egoistic ideas about my bravery and fortitude, I’ve discovered that when truly frightened I will scream like a little girl.
When jolted awake from a deep sleep by crashing branches onto the roof over my head, my brain assumed disaster on a grand scale, and my body screamed and panicked. Yes, that’s my bedroom window.
Apparently my adrenal system is quite healthy as well.
So much for keeping a cool head in an emergency. It wasn’t even an emergency. With good design & good luck, the roof held and all is well.
