I haven’t ventured out since the snow hit us Monday night/Tuesday morning, but I’ve been thinking about checking on going in to work today.
Then I saw on the news where a Chevy Avalanche went over the edge on a bridge near Miami, Oklahoma with 6 or 8 people in it.
This picture is from the News on 6. (KOTV in Tulsa.)
Right now you can watch it here:
There are/were divers in the water, rescuing the victims as well as other rescue workers who’ve put their lives on the line to rescue these people. They had to take equipment down the embankment to be able to get to the people who were in the truck. Snow clogged their way and made getting to the bottom very difficult.
Getting the rescuers back out looks as if it’s even harder. I’m not sure how they got the victims out, but none of it could be easy.
So while I’m praying for the people who were in the Avalanche and the people working on the rescue, I’m thinking I might stay right where I am today. Snug as a bug in my recliner.
I’m not nearly as far north as Miami and we didn’t get as much snow . . . but I do have a few bridges to cross to get to work.
Guess I’d better call someone and see how the roads are. Someone might need me to do something at the office.
How about you? Are you working or staying safe and warm at home?
