Disaster response

Being prepared can mean being ready to respond. Heading to Augusta GA tomorrow to serve with Samaritans Purse teams helping in the aftermath of the epic ice storm that hit last week. Have chainsaw. Will travel. BobW

A sincere pat on the back for helping others. So many need it and yet all too often don't get it until too late. Can't fix the world but we, like you, can try. On the news last night was a woman found dead of exposure. Found in the bushes behind a supermart locally. She had been evicted a few days earlier from her apartment. Hard to imagine what her life was like leading to that.
For her and others, that is just as devastating as Katrina. Sobering stuff. And again, Good For YOU.

Thanks for being a Good Neighbor.
I hope and pray that none may kill me, Nor I kill any, with woundings grim. But if ever any should think to kill me, I pray thee, God, let me kill him first

Well done. Be safe - your own life is just as important as the ones you help.

Thanks for the well wishes and kind words! Arrived home a few days ago. Safe n sound with all fingers & toes intact. I've seen ice storm damage before but the Augusta area was clobbered. Dozens and dozens of volunteers are still working long hours serving the folks in Augusta. Just might return. BobW
