You gotta' love FaceTime! Have you ever tried it? It is amazing. Today our daughter who lives in South Carolina FaceTimed us to show us the damage from the storm they got hit with. She took her iPad outside and showed us the inch of ice on the porch and vehicles. Then she showed us the downed trees and limbs all over her yard. We heard another tree fall while we were viewing the damage. It was a sight! I mean we never expect them to get that sort of weather in her part of the country.
The same storm is hitting the East Coast hard. My brother drives tractor trailers and he called me to tell me he was hurrying to get home before the storm hit. They were telling everyone it was going to be hazardous on the roadway. I called him a few hours later to verify that he was safe at home. He said he parked his truck and went into the office and the weather was not doing anything yet. He did his paperwork up and came out to find the road was white with snow already. It hit that fast.
The storms are doing a lot of damage and I worry about those who are elderly or handicapped with no power.
- Are you prepared for the storms if they were to hit your hometown?
- Do you have alternative heat and ways to cook?
