Repairs take time, so be patient and be helpful

By Victoria Pike
Miss Vicky's Pampered Angus Ranch

Good Sunday morning all. We have survived the storm and power is being restored as fast as humanly possible. We have trees to clear and buildings to repair but we need to take time to be thankful it wasn't ice and snow with frigid temperatures to follow. Some seem to have forgotten this. It's March. It could have been so much worse.

I'm just a bit upset with a few that have decided to take to social media to complain about things not returning to normal once the winds died down. We are all human and can only do so much with the manpower we have. Help is arriving and electricity is being restored. Remember this didn't just happen to Adair County. It's going to take time.

Instead of complaining, get up and go out and help your friends and neighbors who might need help. Check on the elderly to see if they need food and water. Make a grocery run for them. Get a cooler and some ice for someone to store essential food in until their power is back. Lend a generator if you have one. Above all, don't sit on social media sites scanning to see where you can made negative "UGLY" comments about what hasn't been done or by who. I don't tolerate UGLY well.

It's a beautiful day now get out there and do good and stop trying to analyze every comment word by word. Please say a prayer for those out there trying there best to get things repaired and cleaned up. Have a nice day from the crew of the Pampered Angus. ---Vicky, Zippy, and Minnie
