Power returned around 6:oo pm on Wednesday, September 17th. We were without electricity for 75 hours.
My state and particularly my city, endured what is being called the equivalent of a level 1 hurricane on Sunday and not a drop of rain fell. The damage to our area was unbelievable.
We fared well. Some of our neighbors did not. Several houses up the street sustained damage...trees through the roof, on top of cars, down in yards. No one was hurt and that is good.
I have not been to work yet this week. Tomorrow is up in the air. I will know sometime around 6 am tomorrow morning.
Thanks to a good friend, we had a generator. I cooked on a Coleman stove. We lost a minimal amount of food.
I have some issues with the way my city handled things...but I am tired and my heart is heavy. It doesn't seem like complaining is appropriate right now.
I am glad to back my friends...I missed you.
Here are a few shots of our neighborhood to show you what has been going on.
