Forty-five years ago this year, my area was devasted when Hurricane Agnes dumped a huge amount of rain in the region causing the Susquehanna River to rise over its banks. I was too young to remember it especially being safely housed at my grandparents’ house a few miles from the flooding. We were in town for my other grandmother’s funeral so we didn’t have to deal with the aftermath. It’s something that greatly impacted my area.
Now I live blocks from that same river and we’ve had to evacuate several times in that last 20 years and waited with trepidation when nearby towns flooded and water started coming under the levee that protects our town. But I’ve never had to go through what the people in Texas are going through. My heart goes out to them. It’s hard watching them dealing with it now and knowing what they will have to deal with in the future.
Along with keeping those affected thoughts and prayers and helping where you can, take this time to put together and emergency pack for your pet. We like to think that we’ll have enough time to get things together, but the truth is, you won’t
Thanks for taking the time to check out my featured post picks from our last Linky Party.
