Where were you when the lights went out?
When Friday night's violent storm blindsided the area everyone's lives changed in one form or another.
Lights went out. Trees were toppled. Branches everywhere. And the unrelenting heat. Ugh.
For anyone who's lived through this, we don't need to belabor the obvious - this has been rough.
We'll wait for all the analysis once the crisis has passed. For now, the job is to get through these next few days.
The good news, is we've made it this far despite spoiled food, gas tanks nearly empty, and traffic jams.
It's the kind of thing that tests everyone's nerves. When you feel your blood pressure starting to rise and get the urge to scream at that person ahead of you, take a deep breath and THINK. We're all in this together and need to help each other out. Even if it's small act like asking your elderly neighbor if they need some milk or water.
Maybe someone is short of cash because their debit card company is offline. Offer to help out in some way. We guarantee you'll feel a lot better and we're sure whoever gets the help will surely appreciate it.
There's no denying the time since Friday night has been harrowing in the Mid-Ohio Valley. But we'll get through this eventually. It will be easier if we work together.
