Possible impact of the snow storm?

The other day I drove my wife into work. 

My car was stuck because our neighborhood had yet to be plowed.

A Prius does not like the snow!

My wife's car has four wheel drive.

As we left at 6:30 in the morning I noticed all the people out walking. 

I figured they were all trying to make it to their jobs.

I had never seen that many people out that early before.

Then it occurred to me. 

How many folks will be forced out into the streets as a result of this storm?

Who will not be able to pay next month's rent?

There are so many people who live paycheck to paycheck.

I am assuming that a lot a folks could not afford to miss a few days of work.

Just yesterday someone said there are people who can't even afford to miss a few hours of work, that's how close they live to the edge.

I have never even stopped to consider the consequences of a storm like the one we just saw.

I only focus on the impact it has on me.

I guess I have been living in my own little protected world for far too long.

I pray for those who are struggling.
