Succinctly Yours: Irene

Succinctly Yours is a weekly meme by grandma. Of this meme she says:

How low can you go?

Use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words. It doesn’t have to be exactly 140, just not more. This one is 140 characters.

She loaded the car with their bags and cast one last long look behind. Waves already pounded the beach. She prayed their home would survive.

Note: This post is scheduled because I may not have power tomorrow. Or this week. It is inspired by both the picture and the rain presently pounding the streets outside. The picture seems particularly appropriate. Or maybe I just can’t help but see Irene everywhere just now. Be safe everyone!
