For the past several days, the CSRA was known as the Ice Area. The inclement weather caused loss of power; fallen trees scattered all over the metro area; and power lines and cable lines hanging from frozen trees and drooping with ice.
This wasn’t anyone’s fault. This was an act of God. However, I think the CSRA still was unprepared. I don’t think the media released any helpful information such as which stores were closed. However, the managers of the stores could have gotten water out to the elderly, or hotel owners could have placed those elderly who need oxygen in hotels free of charge – not charge them because they are on fixed incomes.
I believe hotel prices, store prices and gas prices were jacked up. It’s still all about the dollar bill. We must be more helpful and caring instead of seeing who can make the most money.
