IRMA - THURSDAY MORNING
In years past, I have sat in the safety of my living, and watched the news reports of rescues after a hurricane. My thoughts were always, "Idiots, why didn't they leave!" I get it now. But,I am surrounded by people that have lived here for years and been through hurricane after hurricane here. I am prepared for the storm, and know how to get by after it passes. It's not that I want to "protect my stuff", I don't really have anything that I can't live without.
I feel I, and many of my friends, are being harassed for staying. They are begging us to leave. STOP IT! We know you care for our safety, we have made the decision to stay. So, just sit back and enjoy/or gasp at the reports that we will get to you after the storm has passed. Who know, it might turn north sooner than expected and there won't be much to report.
I will climb down off my soapbox now, and get back to work. Yes, I will work as long as our doors are open. We are a hardware store, and provide much needed supplies to our neighbors. We are open after THE OTHER big box hardware store has locked their doors.
