It does you no good to ignore your own home (relationship, family, job, etc.) while trying to save someone else’s. Doing both is the trapeze act we all have as part of a community of caring people. But, if the choice must be made, I think it is better to take the chance of damage to our own property than to not care for others in danger.
My frozen winter weather reporter, inspired by SP, is a bow to all our intrepid journalists who go out on frozen days like this to tell us stories we need to hear. Thank you!
