In 2015, the arrival of September meant so much more than fall, pumpkins, and the beginning of school. Finally, after months of pregnancy, I was full-term. Any day, we would welcome the arrival of our second-born. We finished prepping the bassinet and folding the diapers. We finalized babysitting plans for Brookie. I typed up my birth plan.

Will we lose all our possessions? Will our cars be damaged from flooding? If a surge occurs, will we lose our friends? Our family? Our loves ones? Should we evacuate?
