They’d warned us it was happening.  We’d seen it too.  We just didn’t know when it would actually happen.  What we did know was that we’d had a string of natural disasters in quick succession, one after the other.  We’d exhausted almost all of our resources in the aftermath of those.  Now we were just watching and waiting for the big one.  I could feel the tension in my bones; whatever was about to happen, it wouldn’t be pretty.  It would destroy everything.
