    It was my first hurricane. Well, it wasn't technically speaking, a hurricane, but we kids didn't care.

    I was 4 1/2, and it was the greatest fun thing in my whole short life to be hunkered down in a neighbor's basement for days with all the neighborhood kids. Nothing to do but play games and have fun.

    I'm sure our parents had a different view, but we kids had a great time. We lived on a cul-de-sac street, so all the families were very close, and most of them had kids the age of myself and my older brother.

    Incidentally, my brother's birthday is Oct. 12, so the storm hit on his big day.

    Please proceed, governor
