We have not had power since 5AM on Sunday morning. We broke out the generator and have been doing as well as can be expected with a totally electrice house. We have a forced air insert in the fireplace and have been keeping everything pretty toasty. God blessed us with plenty of frigging wood in the yard around the house, let alone down the drive and pasture.
Got up Mon. and normal 5AM to see what was going on. They activated the danged EOC at 5:30 and for some fricking reason expected ME to be there! I called in and told them that I would be at work when I could get out of my drive, and that I needed to get off the danged phone while the limbs were falling on my house! So I wasn’t in the bestest mood when they called at 10AM wanting me to do damage assement! Limbs were still falling. I am jsut thankful that we had some trimmed a couple of months back. It would have been much worse if we had not had that done.
Tues. Rick finally got the drive cleared enought to pass. He siad he flet like a rat in a trap. He would cut one tree free and two more would fall. The picture above is our driveway.Got more gas. Got wood and stuff in place so the kids could keep the fire going while we were gone. I came to work yesterday, but we had no power here and I was wondering why the heck I was not at home. Our silly building has back up power, but we are not the important folks, so I had to go down a floor to read email and such. At least today we have power and heat and internet. We ahve all those things at home, I just seem to be constantly doing things and not having time to check in here.
I have pictures I need to load on the internet somewhere. I think I will add a page to my web site and post the link here.
I still haven’t gone to the EOC. Figured that sending all my employees was enough. Well, best get back to the real job. At least pretending better to doing it. Hope you all are doing great! Sending hugss and hhhhmmmmmsss to those in need.
