Gadgets that work
I was home alone last Friday afternoon when I heard a loud man's voice blaring away over and over. At first, I thought someone had broken in the house but the voice sounded so authoritative, I figured it had to be something else. It was this device--the MIDLAND WR300 Weather Radio-- that Glenn had purchased a while back letting me know about a tornado warning. I kind of laughed about the device when he bought it but I must say, it came in handy. It gave the exact time the tornado might hit and what towns it might come through. I was able to get on the phone and warn a friend coming into town to watch the weather and pull into a shelter or safer area than the car, if it got too bad. After seeing in the news that two people--one an infant-- had died during this tornado, I wished that they had been using this device. It might have saved their lives--although the news story said they were in the hallway, perhaps the best place they could find.
