So much chaos and uncertainty in the USA right now *sigh*

I have been following the news of the massive flooding occurring in the Midwest right now since Indiana is a place we may be relocating to. Many people are displaced and have had their homes ravaged by the flooding and storms. Wisconsin, Indiana and Iowa are in a state of emergency as a result of the flooding and the video footage is just heartbreaking to see, houses are just being swept away by raging waters.

In the east people are experiencing a heat wave as temperatures reach triple digits and earthquakes are devastating many in places such as Nevada, California and Greece. I was left thinking “Holy cow, what is going on with the weather” after learning of all the chaos.

Add the weather stress to the economic stress of fast rising gas prices, home foreclosures, layoffs and financial uncertainty and you can pretty much guarantee you know someone who is having a tough time right now. All this craziness is sad and it makes for a hard time for many, thinking about it makes me sick to my stomach and it is surreal.

  • You just plod on. One step at a time. One day at a time. Be steady. Be strong. And don’t listen to the ‘Naysayers’. Just keep on keeping on. The news WILL get better. Things WILL look up. Just put one foot in front of the other ’til we get there.

  • I live in Wisconsin. Thankfully I’m located about 100 miles north of all the destruction. Its so sad to watch the news…I don’t even turn it in anymore. I keep thinking and hoping that there will be an answer to all of these problems.

  • I know! I am afraid to turn on the news. I lay awake thinking about some of this same stuff, but there is nothing I can do to stop it, so I’ve stopped watching the news. I try really hard to concentrate on my little world and what I see with my own eyes. That’s the best I can do for now.
