tree_talking: (please try to understand)
I have so many thoughts and I will try to get out some of them.

As you may or may not have known, my area in Western MA got pummeled by tornadoes on June 1st. A couple of my coworkers lost significant property...and some people lost everything. Everything.

And so, here is my rant.

Look. Just because it's a heavily damaged property that was damaged by these tornadoes (which we hardly EVER get in this neck of the woods) and it's on a public road, this does NOT mean that you can come on the property to look around and take pictures. It does NOT mean that you can throw your trash around while you do look. It does NOT mean that you can take a nice, leisurely drive through the areas where people are TRYING to work and clean up the devastation.

This was someone's home. They might even POSSIBLY be living there, trying to clean up so they can continue living there. And they might also be having a very difficult time doing so.

IT IS NOT A TOURIST AREA/DESTINATION AND YOU SHOULD NOT TREAT IT AS SUCH.

This was your rant for today. Thank you.

For the record, me and mine are fine and unscathed...my area was missed by just about everything, for which I feel grateful and very, very lucky.
