Well we’re expecting company her name is Hurricane Florence, and she is quickly picking up speed. They are saying that she may be worse than Hurricane Hugo. We are currently under a State of Emergency, government officials are telling us not to panic and to remain calm. However, panicking is what Southerners do best…
STATE OF EMERGENCY= FULL ON PANIC MODE!!!
Okay, so at 8:30 Monday morning Jennifer and I were on the move. We stopped to get gas.
We arrived at Wal-Mart around 8:50am and we saw our friend at the bakery. We spoke to her for a few minutes and then whispered “Do y’all have water?” As if everyone coming in through the doors, weren’t after the same thing…WATER!
Then Jennifer, began looking at the fruit and eyeing the pineapples saying something about how she’s eating clean. I’m looking at her and talking to her with my eyes “GET TO THE WATER!”
We were met with nearly empty shelves of water, but we were able to get the water we needed. We then proceeded to find a few other items, and this is what we found….
It truly feels like the calm before the storm. There were no batteries. So I went looking for candles while Jennifer waited in the check-out line. I go to the Wal-Mart at least two to three times a week. So I know where everything is. However, I had no idea where the candles were I stood in the aisle for a few minutes. I was in panic mode. Then I noticed that the dishtowels were on sale. So naturally I grabbed a few.
Then I went back to help Jennifer, check out. It really hit me how real this situation is. She said ” I found some lighters, where are the candles?” I looked at her and I said “I don’t know, but I found these dishtowels on sale.”
Since we’re under a State of Emergency; schools are closed, so they can be turned into shelters and people are battening down the hatches. I pray that everyone finds a safe place to hold up during this hurricane. Please keep us in your prayers.
