15. The real heart breaker with these damned storms is....

that those who can't afford to relocate and those who are too sick or disabled to do so will suffer the most. Keep in mind many will likely be without power for an extended time and perhaps without phone service and/or fresh water.

A very large number of people who live in the low country of NC and SC are in high risk zones for flooding, and many are poor and live in mobile homes or houses with weak construction. I've worked with these folks in years past and they are tough and resilient, but no one can fight a storm this size.

Therefore, lets keep those folks with no voice or political power in our thoughts every day and perhaps support them with appropriate contributions when the time arrives.

Best of luck, Grits and please stay in touch.........
