The Brain, Memory, Emotions, and Hurricanes

I've been in the mood to tell about my very first day of school. 

Yes it was a very long time ago, but if you recall, the memory is connected to emotions, and I had some VERY strong emotions that day.

The Brain, Memory, Emotions, and Hurricanes. Here's a story about my very first day of school, and how the brain is closely related to emotions.

My mother was a teacher, my dad was the Phys Ed director in my town, and my older sister went to school. I had to stay home with the babysitter while everyone else in my family went to school. Needless to say, I wanted to go to school just like everyone else in my world. 

I kept asking when I could go to school. My mother showed me on the calendar how many days had to go by before I could finally go. I counted, and counted, and finally, the day came.

School was cancelled because of Hurricane Donna.

"But you promised." I was inconsolable. I remember my mother bringing me out to the front porch, trying to convince me that they wouldn't let children go to school when the weather was that bad. 

I must have gone to school the next day, but I really don't remember!

It was the intense emotion that I remember to this day.  Yet another lesson on the brain and emotions.  And another hurricane story.
 
Here are couple of videos about Hurricane Donna, if you're interested!
 

Hurricane Donna Newsreel:

This is pretty old, but interesting! Apparently Hurricane Donna caused a lot of damage because it hit so many different places and kept going! The newsreel does end rather abruptly... technology has improved a lot since then!
 

Track of Hurricane Donna:

This shows why Hurricane Donna caused so much damage: it hit Puerto Rico and several islands, the keys and up the coast of Florida, then the entire coast of the US through New England (where I lived.) Luckily, Hurricanes don't always follow that path!

Do you remember your first day of school?
