Just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse,weather wise…it actually DOES! Last week was a terrible one for the staff of our fair radio station. First off,VP/Exec. Producer Claudia May and the rest of the majority of the United Kingdom gets hit with an unexpected snow blizzard that crippled the vast majority of the country with some sections getting over 20 inches of snow. Claudia and her family were literally STUCK at home and was unable to leave their home for days! THEN,our other VP/Exec. Producer Holly Frye Orman who lives in Centerville,Tennessee,dealing with heavy flooding issues ran out of water…AGAIN! Yes this was not the first time that the city ran out of water,it happened a couple of months ago but Holly and her city were devastated by this. I mean,imagine being without one of the most basic things that we take for granted,WATER! Holly and the rest of Centerville suffered thru this for DAYS!! Needless to say her and her family was greatly affected. Then after all of this,my city Philadelphia,Pa. gets hit with a “bomb cyclone”!…..BOMB CYCLONE?!?!? Well try to picture 5 inches of snow,60-90 mph winds and over 700,000 people without power for 3+ days,THAT’S what a bomb cyclone is and I was caught right in the middle! Yes,the ordeal took about 5 hours but within those hours,we were without,electricity AND heat! Not a fun time in the Robinson household. Thankfully all 3 of us have things under control…For now!(p.s.-I’ve just been informed that The Philly area is supposed to get 6-8 more inches of snow..yippee)
