Well, so far it's a bit of an anti-climax. We went to sleep as usualy last night. I told hubby I hope we won't wake up in the middle of the night to the sound of sirens. He said not to wake him up if I hear the sirens - only if I see the flash of a nuclear explosion
I hope no one is offended by this bit of black humor - it sure made me laugh last night
On a more serious note, I believe we'll see some fireworks within the next 24 hours and then the Scud attacks risk will get higher. As long as Saddam feels it's not too bad, he won't be tempted to fire his missiles at us (at least I hope so). There is a lot of tension in Israel today. We were instructed to carry on with the daily routines but to take the chemical warfare protection kits (gas masks + atropin shots etc.) with us everywhere we go. Hubby took his with him to work. My mom and sister live right at the middle of the most dangerous spot (where most scuds hit last time), so they have already evacuated their home and went to stay with friends outside the danger zone.
I too hope this will end soon, but I'm afraid it will take at the very least several more weeks
