I simply couldn't resist jumping into this challenge. At first, I was all excited because I'd finally get to test the Paper Fifty Three app that I downloaded on my iPad, UNTIL I read that this was a paper/pen kind of challenge.
I often suffer from designer's block when it comes to challenge ideas and I tend to begin with the best of intentions to finish. Designer's block either takes over, or the perfectionism latches on and before I know it, I've forgotten all about my idea in the first place.
Anyways, today I muddled through my idea and created a disaster plan near and dear to my heart...hurricanes. Being from south Louisiana, hurricane season trumps all other seasons. Your life is often defined by the hurricanes you've been through, for instance while everyone remembers Hurricane Katrina, my memory is of Hurricane Andrew, August 1992.
While my family evacuated to safety, my dad stayed behind to guard our property. We returned after several days away from home to have no power for nearly two weeks. If you've ever been to Louisiana, you know we have horrid humidity and if you've ever been fortunate enough to visit in August--it is unbearable. Thankfully, we sustained little damage to our home and even the family business. Many could not say the same, including our next door neighbor who suffered major damage to the second floor of their house.
At any rate, here's my attempt at a hurricane disaster "newspaper."
