Sadly (and pathetically) enough, that is true. Some guy saw some Duke workers near his home, and he held a toy gun on them and said they were NOT going to leave until his power was restored! He said he was only joking, but it was taken seriously by the police. People need to seriously get a grip and start thinking about all the blessings they have. They are being inconvenienced, yes. But it's not "death, doom, and destruction". If they'd open their minds and consider what happened in Texas, they'd be a bit more humbled and realize how lucky they are.

Default wind storm around Dayton

I know around Dayton there is still power out in a few places. My brother in Brookville got their power back today but i know it hit that town pretty bad. It knocked down the Library signs, tore off roofs, and uprooted a lot of trees. We live 8 miles away and we were very fortunate that we were only without power for 11 hours. (We live next to a nursing home)I have 4 children and none of them where at home when the wind started. We thought it wasn't going to last very long so we let them go with some friends and my youngest son was at a skatepark when it started getting bad. We were all scared, all i could do was text him to make sure that he was safe. I was glad when they were all home and safe. We went out Monday and handed out hot dogs,chips and water to the people in Brookville to try and help out a little. It is sad to see so many elder people have no one to help out in a time like this. I hope everyone is ok and that not a lot of damage has been done. I have learned a valuable lesson from this. I thank god everyday for what we have , and if I'm able to make a difference in someone's life i will jump at the chance to help out anyway i can.
I hope everyone has a good night
God Bless
