Thought for the Day

Ladies, when your loving husband, your soulmate, the love of your life and father to your children, a man who spent almost a decade each in Scouts and the Army sleeping outdoors in places around the world in unspeakable weather, who slept comfortably though a severe thunderstorm last year in the very tent you are sleeping in, looks outside at the weather at 4 AM and says "We'll be OK", it doesn't mean:

He's immature
He's reckless
He doesn't care
He's a jerk

It means that he's seen worse weather, believes that the equipment and conditions on hand are favorable, and doesn't believe that it is necessary to abandone everything you brought to camp and head for the hills.

It also means that he loves you enough to not panic at the first drop of rain, flash of lightning, or rumble of thunder.
