NC man stays with house and pets, says it was “pretty dumb”



Tom Balance decided to send his wife to Atlanta while staying with his cat and three dogs at their house in North Carolina. After a sleepless night, he talked again to Fox News and said his decision was “pretty dumb.”

Natural disasters of this magnitude create an urgency in most to leave. However, there will always be those who want to ride out the storm. If you’re one of those people, listen to this man. Property is important but it can be replaced.

When asked to describe what was going through his mind while the storm ranged around him. “What have I done? What kind of stupid thing have I done to put myself in such jeopardy when my wife told me to come with her?”

That pretty much sums it up.
