Brrrr! Cold Temps
It really didn't seem that far, maybe 40 feet at the most. Recently, we were at a shopping mall but to access a restaurant that we were interested in, we had to go outside. I was in my power chair and could zoom quickly so I skipped putting my hat and mittens back on. “I should be fine”, I told myself. “I've done this many times and it's really not that far.” Within ... more...

Storm Shelter Sign
Around this time last year, I experienced staying at a shelter for the very first time. Something that I honestly never thought I would have to experience. You see, prior to moving to Florida three years ago, I lived in Brooklyn, New York.
