I would also like to thank all of the workers who provided services for us and made our stay safe in the shelter and those who donated to make our stay more pleasant by providing meals and essential items for those of us displaced by the storm.
I feel very fortunate and thankful for all that was available during this storm and I appreciated the opportunity to stay close to home. Although not under ideal circumstances because of the weather, I was pleased to get to know others in my neighborhood that I had not previously met and we made the best of the situation as a group.
I enjoyed meeting and spending time with my shelter-mates and neighbors but I certainly was glad to leave and return home Saturday morning.
Thanks to everybody who held us in their thoughts and prayers and to all that have done so much to help us.
Linda Sager, Nicholasville
Got a kick out of Dragomir's column
To the editor,
I had to laugh when I read the column Rhonda Dragomir wrote for the last edition. I understand that confession is good for the soul, so here's mine.
When my husband and daughter and I moved to Nicholasville 10 years ago, I was seeking out replacements for all the services I had become accustom to living in Lexington. We had a usual car wash, a usual movie rental place, a usual dry cleaner and so on.
On one rainy day, I had some dry cleaning that I wanted to drop off before I went into work. I was in a hurry and new that just across from Walmart was a cleaner with a drive through.
In my hurriedness and in hopes of avoiding being drenched with the rain, I pulled up to the drive through and waited.
A few seconds later the window opened from the business and I quickly opened my car window and started shoving coats and skirts out to the person waiting there. Once they were all in, she very nicely said "Ma'am, I think you wanted the dry cleaners on the other side of the building. This is a Pizza pick up window." I have to admit, I do feel better for getting that story off my chest.
