Crazy Michael

storm

Hurricane Michael was supposed to hit Florida, go up a couple of states and then zoom back off into the ocean. However, Michael decided to stay a strong tropical storm and come right up over us here in Virginia. We are okay, but our small town could not handle all that rain and the damaging winds that blew through. There are really no words that I could give you to describe the horrible scene.

The company my mom works for closed early so all the employees could get home safely. However, that didn’t happen because as they were leaving the parking lot getting ready to go onto the main road, it was flooded going both ways.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected by this storm. Watching the devastation in Florida on the news left me heartbroken for all of those people.
