I'll try, but I'm still a bit shaky. The cats and I came to Corpus Christi on vacation. Every morning we take a walk on the beach. I love to watch the waves roll in. The cats like to dig in the sand. Yesterday morning was different. The ground was shaky, and I heard a roaring noise, like a jet plane was flying over. I searched the sky. No plane. But I knew we were in trouble when I glanced across the water and saw this huge wave, I mean gigantic, stretching as far in both directions as I could see. And it was headed for shore.
Now, I'd heard of tsunamis, but never saw one. And I hope to never see another one. I also knew we had to find shelter. We'd walked a good distance from the hotel. No way could we reach it before the wave came ashore. I had no idea how far inland the water would come. In the meantime, the cats were meowing and prowling around my legs, clearly sensing disaster. I did the only thing that came to mind. Tucked one cat under one arm, the other cat under my other arm and took off in a run, which was more like wading through mud, at the speed I managed.
I was about ready to collapse, when a couple of guys drove up in a truck, waved for me to hop in the back with my cats and a half dozen other people, which I did thankfully. And minutes later we were safe at a shelter in town. I never did find out my rescuers names. But they save my life.
