Dodged the bullet
October 30, 2012 - Heather Ziegler
I, like others, prepared for the worst and breathed a sigh of relief this morning when I awoke and had power. Those poor folks along the coast. They don't know what hit them. You can prepare all you want, but until everything happens, well, you get the picture. A fellow worker said he wouldn't mind a big snow that keeps us in for a day. He said it makes us re-evaluate our priorities. It gives us face time with our families when the cable goes out or the power flickers. He's right. Jobs aside, it often takes a catastrophe for us to realize what is really important, who really matters in our lives. It's still weird to see Halloween decorations covered in snow. As I write this, my sister in Morgantown is telling me that the snow is starting to pile up down there. And imagine two or three feet of snow others are getting in the state. Let's hope this is just the freak storm and not a sign of the winter to come. It's still fall and I have a few photos to remind us of that. By the end of today, all these beautiful sights will be just a memory. Stay safe.
