Ice Storm 2009
We are in a state of emergency here, I am online for the first time since monday and am on a generator now…had to turn off my refrigerator cooling time to do even this memo. It’s a nightmare here. FEMA is coming in…national guard I can’t detail it all, we just got water back after three days, still no power, not even at the hospital, trees are all splintered as far as the eye can see and we are not to get above freezing until Saturday. When it starts to melt, there is so much on trees, flooding will be a problem, water lines will burst, fires from people using bad heat sources to keep from freezing.
Pray for all of us, especially those in real need. No gas here for generators, having to try to go get gas long distance, only cash locally, which many don’t have on hand. 1-2 hour waits for fuel off one pump run by generator…crazy.
I’ve been hosting 15 for food and gas logs we have, down to 10 tonight. It’s cold and the days are very long. We have been melting snow some days for water to do dishes…note, the yield is not so good! 😀
Every tree is splintered and broken as far as the eye can see, let’s see, I’m counting about 18 very badly damaged in my yard alone…and we have about 22.
Note to family and friends, mom’s flight still went out of Evansville today…she is in the air, supposed to arrive there on Friday. Our land lines are working as of tonight, finally! Water and phones are very intermittant.
