A couple years ago, the people I was with and I had a hurricane go through our area. The two of us have hurricanes seldom plus no one can ever absolutely be prepared for the devastation, regardless of what category it is in. The two of us had the heavy winds plus a lot of rain. It came far enough inland that most people was surprised when the people I was with and I got all of the winds. The storm even spawned a couple tornadoes plus one went right past our home. My fiance was in total shock. The two of us live on top of a mountain plus yet a tornado came right up between the mountains plus took out half of our orchard. It also took out our electricity. This was absolutely taxing for us. The two of us have a well plus without electricity, the people I was with and I don’t have water. Without electricity, the people I was with and I didn’t have cooling system. After the storm, the humidity was so high that I was unable to breathe. I have asthma plus I need to have the cooling system if I am going to continue breathing. My fiance quickly got the generator running, but it can only run so long without fuel. The two of us drove to the gas station, hoping to get some fuel for the generator, so the people I was with and I could run the cooling system. The gas station was also being affected by power outage. I got to rest in the car, with the cooling system, while the people I was with and I went twenty miles out of neighborhood to find a gas station. The two of us were able to get the fuel for the generator plus go home to get our cooling system running, plus me out of the car.
