The bad storms and tornado threats are already in the Midwest even in Chicago and many cities in OH and moving eastward....
They are warning that it is going to build and coincide with a warm front from the south so there is potential for a Derecho which is this long wall of a storm that has incredibly high winds and rains.
This is what caused so much widespread damage and more than week of power outages for many in the Washington, DC and Metro area last year.
I'm writing to have people prepare NOW. Check when your medications are due and make sure you have enough for the next days, talk to your Dr. and get them early if needed. Get food, water, and supplies NOW! After that last storm I bought tons of supplies for my mom, doggy and self and keep in the garage so I don't have to scramble.
I also went ahead and booked a hotel room in a place we got to stay last year that takes dogs. We called at 5am after that awful storm and hours later every hotel in the entire area was booked solid..So...we were so grateful and lucky to have A/C and a place to stay for 6 days. Difficult to afford but no other choice as the temps were over 100 at that time!
So this is why I went ahead and booked now as I can easily cancel tomorrow night if needed with no charge.
I'm hoping it isn't as bad as they say it might be but want everyone to prepare the best they can and stay safe!
Hugs to my peeps (( ))
