I read about Hurricane Winston I think it was, hitting the local area and luckily it wasn’t bad but there were a lot of damaged houses and shops, which was very sad to see as it was winter and very cold.
It’s incredible how a hurricane can cause so much damage, break so many windows, even double glazed windows, which are very strong and these broken windows were on the periphery of the storm, so the wind was not that strong but it seemed to whip up debris and throw it at so many homes, shops, offices and public buildings.
This got me thinking about how the damage is fixed, how many local or national companies get involved in fixing, restoring people’s homes and businesses. I watched so many teams of emergency services get involved; builders, plumbers, electricians, glaziers, everyone just got on with it.
And it was all fixed up in no time, there was large panes of glass being delivered, bricks being delivered, boarding up happening, massive amounts of work to fix the broken windows and walls.
Very impressive to see so many people involved to restore a community back to how it was. It must have cost millions to fix.
Life is interesting, things happen to all of us all the time and we just get on with it, some good some bad but all are life’s rich tapestry. It doesn’t matter whether you are dieting or eating, running or swimming, life just rolls on.
So Hurricane’s come and go but life rolls on.
