As I was heading to the airport last week for my flight to DC to visit some law school friends, I heard abut the prospect of a historic storm as a hurricane was on track to converge with a nor'easter near the Mid-Atlantic. I paid the news no mind. How many times have we suffered through coverage of storms that end up being no more than a blip on the radar screen? And so I passed on the opportunity to change my return flight and head back to Florida early in order to avoid getting stranded in DC. Besides my skepticism about the storm, we had lots of fun things planned, and I didn't want to miss them.

The devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Sandy is incomprehensible. My heart goes out to the millions of people affected by what in fact did turn out to be a storm of epic proportions. I feel incredibly fortunate not only to have been relatively unaffected by the storm but to have ridden it out with some of my dearest friends. Once again I am reminded that life is short and that I need to make the most of every day. I'm going to give it the old college try.
