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 a href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00009V2YV?ie=UTF8tag=wwwviolentkicomlinkCode=as2camp=1789creative=9325creativeASIN=B00009V2YV”MIDLAND WR300 Weather Radio–/aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=B00009V2YV” width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”” style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / 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 a href=”http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/weather/04/11/southeast.tornadoes/”in the news that two people/a–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.
