The Heroes of Snowed In Atlanta 2014
Has anyone given a shout out of thanks to Eric Erickson of WSB radio, who stayed on the air for hours and hours and kept us informed through the night? We finally had to spend the night in our van (husband is a quadriplegic so we couldn’t walk up our hill) after 14 hours of traffic. We turned off the radio so we could try to sleep around 3 am, so I don’t know how long Eric was broadcasting. I appreciate his company all afternoon and night.
Cheers to everyone that “did their job” that provided comfort to those in an incredibly stressful situation this week. A lot of folks worked overtime, many in unpleasant conditions and putting themselves in danger. Many others stepped up and volunteered in ways that just filled needs as they saw them. As heads begin to cool and temperatures thaw, I hope many will take the opportunity to see the beauty of humanity in this event, not just the problems of managing a crisis.
