The fuss over views and possible health hazards of cell towers seems small and petty when the power is out, the phones are dead and your house is on fire — no phone, no power, zero temperatures. (The view is very grim.)
A short time ago, a man working with a bladed weed whacker died because his partner’s cell had no service. The man went for help, but it was too late — not pretty.
I am a lady a few months short of 90 years old, with bad health and living off the main road. Power out? Too bad! I am not a drain on the government. I have a degree from a nursing college earned many years ago and practiced as a nurse for 40 years. I’ve lived in Rappahannock since 1953 and raised my family here.
I love Rappahannock’s quiet beauty and am no newbie — but, folks, please think of the old and the very young who matter, too.
