After the Storm

For the second time in less than four years, I sit in a dark house after a devastating storm.  My hometown has sustained a heavy blow.  We're still here, though.  Not only is the Waffle restaurant open, so is McDonald's, the Mexican place and Zaxby's, among others...

My little transistor radio still works.  Flashlights provide enough light.  My grill just cooked all the meat in my fridge, and I ate it.  (I probably didn't need to, but it was a good excuse.)

Tomorrow will be another day.  May God bless and comfort those who've suffered losses, today.  I know it sounds a bit cliche, but, no matter how dark it seems, the sun will rise again.

 *EDIT*  Power is already back on!  Those power company guys deserve the praise they're given.  Seeing the damage, it didn't seem possible.
