Sunday Post #5
So many of my family and friends have lost their homes, cars, and their pets. This is like a nightmare that I keep hoping to wake from. I feel so hopeless that I can’t get to them because the roads between where I live and where they are have been washed out and blocked by trees. I’m hoping to find a safe alternative route to take once the water starts to recede, but that could be a while away.
They don’t even live on the coast and are seeing this much damage. I think we were so concerned about wind damage since that what we usually get that we didn’t even think about flooding because it hasn’t flooded this bad there since Hurricane Hugo. I’m blessed because we don’t have any flooding in our yard as of yet. We have a neighbor’s tree fall, but thankfully it fell in their yard and avoided hitting any houses, cars, and power lines.
Some of my other neighbors have mini ponds in their yards and one of our parks is completely flooded. Our emergency crews have been great at quickly getting the power restored to those without and moving all of the fallen trees as they are notified about them.
Y’all this hurricane has taught me to never get comfortable or try to downplay storms. Always expect the unexpected when it comes to Mother Nature and these natural disasters. We’ve also agreed that the next major storm that comes through, we will be evacuating as one big family and going outside of the Carolinas. This way we aren’t separated and everyone is safe.
Please pray for the Carolinas. If you would like to help here is a wish list of supplies that will be needed for cleanup. Please consider purchasing something off this list.

Nothing! I’ve been too stressed to finish anything.
The Breakup Plan | This week I received a copy of this from Honey Magnolia PR. This is a best friends to enemies romance which has me very intrigued because it’s usually enemies ending up best friends. I’m curious to see how this story will play out. A full review of this is coming soon.
