9/11 v. hurricane

My sister is afraid of flying and afraid of storms. We’re in the path of Ike, though it is a category 2, it is a slow moving hurricane with winds of tropical storm level (50 mph) across 275 miles. That means over 24 hours of high winds.

She decided to fly home today, instead of staying for the hurricane.

And she was afraid to fly because it was 9/11. But she was sure it was more likely that we would be hit by the hurricane than that she would be hijacked by terrorists. And she was right.

She arrived home safe and sound.
