Get ready - your life depends on it

September is National Preparedness Month and Sept. 16 is Get Ready Day. Ready for what, you might ask. I know I did. We do not live in California where earthquakes are frequent. We do not live in Arizona where wildfires ravage. We do not live near occurrences of landslides, tsnuamis or volcanoes. We don’t live along the Gulf where hurricanes are a season.

The limb is gone and so is the tree and another large tree that was in the same yard. Every time I drive down Floyd Street and pass where those trees were I get a jolt. It just doesn’t look right.

More exhausting: a soccer player or soccer grandmother?

My younger Macon granddaughter spent the week with me. It was exhausting for both of us. She had to be across the road from Parkview High School at 8 a.m. each morning.
