❄️ Dangerous Weather Brings Kindness Opportunities 🚙
--by mindyjourney, posted Jan 21, 2023
With temps in the double minus digits, wind chills of -48 fahrenheit and blowing snow squalls, it’s life threatening here in the Hills.
We braved the roads and nasty conditions for an overnight in Rapid City, hoping to beat the storm, so MisterM could keep an appointment that had already been rescheduled once due to inclement weather.
Woke up to a dead car battery, so a kind traveler (stranded at the hotel due to interstate closing) gave us a jump.
Then, as we were leaving, a young man asked the desk clerk if they had jumper cables - they didn’t.
“We do!” I responded.
When MisterM returned from bringing our vehicle around to the hotel door, I told him the situation.
He offered, saying, “Well, I needed a jump this morning and now it’s my turn to repay the favor.”
Kindness is like that sometimes. You give what you receive, almost instantaneously!
❄️ A lot of folks are being negatively impacted with harsh holiday travel conditions. Bless all with a safe journey 🙏.
