~“Hurricane Sandy, Chicken Legs & Miracles”~

Published: Friday, November 9, 2012 at 11:32 AM.

Having gone through a few hurricanes, I understand they are no laughing matter, but there are always interesting things to be found when storms come.  Jesus walked on water in the midst of a storm, so I was not surprised to experience a miracle in the middle of Hurricane Sandy.

My son is a 15 year-old freshman in high school.  They say we aren’t supposed to say “freshman” anymore, because it leaves out women.  My son and I discuss these sorts of things when we are riding alone in the car.

His high school was having their homecoming dance on the Saturday that Hurricane Sandy came to town.  The weather wasn’t that bad on Saturday evening, so they went ahead with the dance.  I took him and agreed to pick him up around 11 PM.

My son and a friend decided to go to the dance stag and look to meet girls without dates or the girls who got mad at their dates.  Evidently, there is a high probability of this happening.  It made good sense to me; I can be a bit frugal and found this to be an admirable venture on my son’s part.

After waiting in line and eventually picking my son up from the dance, I asked him the normal questions.

“Did you have fun?”

“Were there many girls without dates?”
