Trying to be the best me, I can be
We just got power back after 7 1/2 days without it. Ice Storm last Saturday knocked out 80% of the grid for our electric co-op. (Southside Electric Co-operative). One county over the devastation is incredible. 18 poles down on one road due to a big tree falling over. Some folks may not have power for another 2 weeks!!!! Slipped on the ice that morning and crushed my new phone as well. Thankfully I have a wood stove for backup. Had plenty of wood and cooked lots of hot dogs and beans on the stove. Hardest part was there was so little to do especially at night. Seriously thinking about a integrated generator now. Just hate spending the money.
