It jumped across county lines and hit homes along St Andrews Church Road. Why would I care sitting in my home here in the DC area?? Because when my husband was stationed at Fort Bragg, we LIVED IN SANFORD, NC!!! That Lowe’s is the store where we purchased our guest bathroom fixtures and sinks and faucet. It is where we purchased our paint and supplies. It was familiar to me in so many ways. Watching the video and seeing the destruction of I was called my ‘stomping ground’ is very sobering. I remember when we reported to Bragg….
We arrived at Bragg in September. We checked in to a weekly hotel place on Bragg Boulevard, needing 2 of their rooms because of our 4 children. We then contacted our realtor and began a 4 day marathon of house hunting. We were all over the map surrounding Fort Bragg. My husband really wanted to be out away from post so we could breath a bit of ‘civilian’ air when of duty. He also loved the idea of being out in the county so we could burn stuff in our yard in bonfires and spread out. While visiting a ranch style home, south of Sanford, in the county, I looked down the street and found this. It was For Sale By Owner, so not listed in the sites we had looked at. We rang the doorbell, met the sweet Christian family living there and I felt like I had walked into my home.
