With the polar vortex turning the entire Midwest colder than Antarctica, I worry about the many missing people out there who may be wandering around the country homeless.
I know homeless people tend to be pretty self-reliant and lot of major cities have taken all sorts of initiatives to protect their homeless communities, but it is never going to be entirely enough. I mean, where I’m at, the wind chill is like -30 or so and I’m afraid to even take Kinsey out to pee, never mind try to spend the night outside.
I’ve already read of one case of a missing man apparently dying of hypothermia.
I wanted to mention a really good Facebook group, Missing and Homeless, which is specialized for missing and vulnerable people who are believed to possibly be somewhere among the homeless community.
Stay warm tonight, everybody.
