Really Stormy Weather


by Maggie Sefton





My hometown area of Northern Virginia was hit today (I'm writing this post on Mondayj July 8th) by a rainstorm deluge and flash flooding in that entire area including Washington, D.C.  If you watched any of the news channels you saw how high the water came up in just a matter of 3-4 hours.  Several main roads were completely impassable.  People in Fairfax County, VA which is where I regularly fly into at Dulles Airport were stranded in their cars when the water suddenly rose.  Quiet little creeks became raging rivers.  Over 3 inches of rain in just an hour.  

This was totally shocking to me because that exact area of Fairfax County is the location where my two daughters who live in the area reside. Thank goodness they were in areas that stayed dry and safe from the flooding.  Also my dearest friends from childhood live   in nearby areas, and they were also safe from the flooding----just some water in the basements.     Needless to say, I have been on the telephone a lot today trying and finally succeeding in reaching my family and friends.

This just reminds all of us how powerrul Mother Nature is.  Stay safe, Everyone.

Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the Vampires Lord on his Email: Richvampirekindom@gmail.com
