As you've probably heard Hurricane Matthew made his way through North Carolina yesterday. We had tons and tons of rain, high winds, flooding and the prerequisite power outages that goes along with such storms.
Although we live over 2 hours inland, we felt it here as well and let me tell ya'll cash, is. king. Some stores were open however their credit/debit card systems were down. They were only taking cash or checks. Well Friday afternoon, after work, I went to the ATM and got extra cash out. Best move. I like to pay with cash for the most part anyways but it really comes in handy during times like these.
So my lesson is this-try to keep some cash on you at all times. You never know when you will actually NEED it!!
