As I speak to more people and go about my daily life I see more and more devastation resulting from the storms last Saturday. My family and I were very fortunate in that the two systems pretty much went up either side of us. It was scary enough as it was.
If I learned one lesson it would have been that even though the odds are slim, it pays to be attentive to emergency procedures and be aware of what your responsibilities are during this type of disaster. The people at the Lowes store in Sanford would have been far worse off had store employees not known what to do and where to go. The destruction was almost beyond belief.
