Although Tornado “Zeta ” was not a surprise, the meteorologists saw it coming and warned for days, yet, it hit Georgia with fury last night and into early morning. Many homes destroyed, car windows shattered and power outages!
🌳 Yesterday, when we were alerted, (thank God for a country that is organized and comparably prepared for such) I poo-pooed, the news and teased”they are always looking for ways to get a holiday , why close the schools for chrissake, I said to my friend ,” haven’t we wasted enough time in 2020?”. I had to ask God to forgive that statement, cos when I got out this morning (I had to secure my wig with a hat, I don’t have the willpower to to chase a flying wig in this record blowing windstorm🤪)
And when I came out of my building, a huge tree had fallen right next to my delicate car!🚗 , and I gave Glory to God right there! I am still paying notes on my car, and if that tree 🌳 had fallen on it?”diminished value ” right away, so I was glad for that break!
3rdly, because of a month end project , I had to be at work early, clean up will take half a day to cut and remove tree, I surveyed the tiny space to maneuver car, and decided to take a chance, hoping branch doesn’t break my windows.
As I said earlier , its only goodness of God, as I was able to squeeze – heart in throat- through narrow pass.
I am usually a fearless driver, due to fact I was raised in Africa where people drive in a “survivalof fittestapproach” , but today, I was holding tight steering wheel like a newbie 😃 on the radio,newscaster announce there “are accidents on freeway,” so I took sides, which were covered with tree branches, stumps and other debris! Five minutes to my destination, I saw police trucks blocked the road! We had to find other alternative.🙆🏾♀️🤷🏽♀️
I made it in however, eventually, and of course, I learned valuable lessons on trusting other experts judgements , and, it does not hurt to heed warnings. How will teenagers younger adults ,or seniors have managed if pros like myself was struggling 😅
