The birth of Hurricane Emily

It stormed the night of July 16th, 1992. The road on our block flooded….flooded so bad, the neighbors actually called someplace to come blow open the drains. It was during that storm that my youngest decided to make her appearance…and in a hurry! After almost being born on the toilet, a ride on the ambulance with a paramedic that never delivered a baby before, a race to the delivery room (and a lot of hee hee hee hoo-ing), this beautiful 10 lb bundle who was so intent on arriving during the storm, was born at 02:43 am on July 17th, 1992 (a mere 15 minutes after I arrived there). Storm or no storm, she wanted out and NOW! A year later, they named a hurricane after her. Happy Birthday Emily.
