28 / The Summer of Disruption
Yasmine woke me up around midnight. ‘Quickly, get onto the website, two tickets have appeared for a Tuesday flight out of Tampa to Toronto. Book one before they go!’

I groggily opened my computer and tried to buy the ticket. My credit card was maxed out. No time to top up funds. I pulled my other credit card and tried again. It went through. We had a ticket out of Tampa.

The next bit of good news came the next morning with the triumphant return of her passport.

Now we just needed a hurricane to behave itself.
