In the past 10 years, when were you truly scared? I'm not talking horror movies, but in real life. When did your heart race, or felt you or others were in imminent danger?
Lots of times in my long life. But if I'm limited to the last 10 years, it would be:
Never. Not for myself, anyway. One incident was when a car plunged off the seawall into a river below our condo. I wrote about it here and posted pics. The car lights at 4 AM were still visible below the water. I raced outside, fearing the driver or passengers might be trapped inside. I was just about to jump in when the police arrived and restrained me. Turns out the driver had gotten out and was hiding.
My husband's 2 strokes were pretty scary, as was his near heart attack (some of his doctors contend it really was an actual heart attack). Fearing for your loved-one's life can be very scary in those medical emergency situations.
Other than those, I don't think anything very scary in 10 years. Oh, maybe hurricane Irma. But we judged we'd be OK and ignored the evacuation orders. Of course you wonder if you judged wrong while riding it out. But Irma wasn't much here, more an adventure than anything. It was later, with the 5 or so days without electricity, that were the real problem.
