    Last week, I had hard time on snow blizzard. I learned how is dangerous and I am nothing with nature disaster. If I don't want this happen a lot, I should take action of Earth climate crisis because it can bring nature disaster more.

      Hi Seungyeob,

      I'm sorry to hear that you had a difficult time during the ice storm. It was a reality check for me as well. We lost power and had several trees fall near our home. It is difficult to ignore climate change when it's happening in real-time where we live. Events like this make me realize how important it is to act sooner rather than later. The more we neglect the issue, the more dangerous it becomes.

      Thank you for sharing!
