Letter: The grim reality of dangerous storms

Gloucester Daily Times

---- — To the editor:

There comes a time when we have to realize one is just not ready for storms, yet these storms will not disappear.

When one storm hits, another seems to take its place, at no end, like the ones we’ve seen this past winter. But just keep in mind and consider yourself lucky that there is no way to predict these storms that can destroy anything in their path, and that while we’ve had a lot of damage, we have not been hit with these types of storms here.

There is no real way to defend ourselves — other than to grin and bear it and move on.
