Flooding in Marion, South Carolina GERALD HERBERT / AP
To the on the job non stop television and weather crews covering the storm and keeping us updated, We thank you! Some have picked about The Weather Channel making some of the reports worse than then were, and none of us want or need that untruth. Sadly, there is enough happening in the Carolinas that is truthful and sad enough. It doesn't need to be amplified! But, listen up, if we did not have those dedicated weather personnel to give us information a lot more lives would be lost indeed!
My last statement reminded me of my grandparents talking about Hurricane Hazel. Think about that one! No television, because I don know when they got theirs' but I do believe it was well after that hurricane. Imagine to just being at home and with no warning at all, a hurricane with high winds and rains begins. I, personally can not imagine! You can see how very blessed we all are to have the notification, early warnings that are available to us now..
To the electrical power company crews that are out non-stop repairing and restoring our power, we thank you! Some have come in from many states away to help! We thank you!
To the Department of Transportation, We thank you for keeping us safe on the highways. So many are affected in weather like this. I'm amazed as many are as to how much they are affected! You prevent loss of life for sure.
To All First Responders, Police Officers, Traffic Officers, Firemen, Emergency Medical, etc: You who are constantly on duty, but even more busy when a natural disaster happens we thank you!
If you have any snacks, water or anything else that is a surplus to you, please donate to a homeless shelter near you.
Check the condition of roads/highways near you for safety. There are links that can help you find out their condition. Never, under any circumstances travel around barricades. It truly could mean life or death.
I hope these Bible Verses will comfort.
