This Is A Test Of Rapid Writer

I wanted to give rapid writer a chance to see if it was any different than WP. So far I don't see any difference. But I must proceed. Here in L A it is sleeting. The arctic blast has moved as far south as the Northwest Coast and Panhandle of Florida. Here in Lower Alabama we hardly ever get this many days of freezing weather as we have experienced this year.

Went out earlier today to buy fire logs and was told there are none left in this area. Crazy thing is I did not know about the sleet and snow until noon today. I wish I had my WA community here locally, then someone would have warned me of the approaching winter storm Leon. I was online at WA yesterday and at long last today I checked my emails from Facebook and saw a post about road closings in LA.

It was too late, by that time the fire logs were gone leaving no alternative for heat if we lose electricity. Which is very possible as we live in the woods on a lake so if tree limbs fall we will be out of heat, hot water, and refrigerator until Thursday when it's expected to warm up. So you Yanks are laughing, or not, but we Southerners do not have salt or equipment for de-icing as it so seldom happens here, thank God.

The people in ATL are sitting in cars on interstates, running out of gas, no food, no toilets and its taking 3.5 hours just to drive 10 miles. The school kids there were not kept home today and realizing they probably would be stuck on the side of the road all night, the public school officials are keeping them overnight at school. Imagine the little kids who want Mommy or Daddy. I feel for them! Mommy and Daddy might be freezing on the roadways. And the educators cannot get home for their families. It's just a huge mess. Kind of like New Yorkers having to deal with hurricanes. They were not prepared either...just like us now!

Same problems in Birminham, Charleston with the interstates becoming parking lots. My own daughter was in a car accident on black ice here in LA. Three 30 year olds going home from a NA (narcotics anonymous) meeting. She, thank God, only has a fractured rib! No one told me until Friday...if you have visited my website you know why. There are two links in this article to my site where I blog about domestic abuse/violence.

Turn the weather channel on and view the problem live or go online. At any rate, this was test of , no not the emergency broadcast center, but a test of rapid writer. Now to see if I can make a link. Hey...it worked! I say kudos to rapid writer. A new member of WA put this idea in my head when he mentioned using rapid writer. I just had to check it out for myself.
