Much like the countless other evacuees scattered across the country, the pair patiently waited until they could go home. During that period, they visited a restaurant one afternoon, before returning to their car. However, 21-year-old Ashleigh then noticed a letter wedged under one of the front windshield wipers.
Unsurprisingly, Ashleigh was curious as to the contents of the note, albeit with a hint of cynicism. Indeed, she initially believed that the message would be about how she had parked the vehicle. As the Myrtle Beach resident started reading it, though, that negative mindset quickly changed.
“[I] saw your license plate is from South Carolina,” the note read. “[I’m] not sure if you evacuated from the storm, but just know Florida is praying for you and your state. When we had [Hurricane] Irma, we evacuated to Alabama and received a similar letter on our car, because [of] our Florida license plate.”
