Growing Up In Jamaica

Growing up in Jamaica it is safe to say my life has been anything but normal. I have seen and done the impossible but one thing stands out above the rest and it was the time I took a shower in a category 4 hurricane. In 2004 when Hurricane Ivan hit Jamaica, I was a 6 year old in first grade. It was absolutely disastrous, causing many fatalities and even left some people homeless and sick. While it was catastrophic it was also a win for us as kids because we didn’t have to go to school for a while. As the hurricane raved on, the ‘eye’ which describes the center of the hurricane made the rain a little calmer but the situation was still dangerous. It is always recommended that whenever we have a hurricane watch we should stay inside at all times.
