Of course you already know from the prior post we were without power for 39 and a half hours and truely believe that if not for the neighbors Dr. sending the fax of his medical needs we would still not have power.
I spoke with the power guys who removed the tree from the lines and they had come from Clayton Ga to help out here in this area because the outtages were so wide spread... the other night of the 10 or so friends in a 20 mile radius only ONE had power. we all live in different areas some in the country some in neighboring towns and counties. YET across the street from us had power as of 7 am Thursday morning.
We were ok, for us the heat is a bear but, when you live in the county like us if you have no power you also have NO WATER and that is ROUGH.
you can't shower to cool off you can't flush toilets you can't add water to the fish pond. It stinks.
I had taken these pics one day last week when we still had the easy set pool with a couple inches of water and Bradley and Lori and I had been playing in the water ... Bradley got bored and decided to play in the yard. (some pics are all wonky as in size and placement but you can click them to make them bigger )
I cracked up when I loaded the pics and the look on his face said it all to me.
Last night I had a pork loin that HAD to be cooked... I had taken all of the food in our freezer to my cousins in town and had stuck the loin in a cooler... anyway when Schlena called I asked her if she wanted to come to supper and so she did... we always have a blast when shes here... and the smoked pork loin and fresh corn was awesome... I love my grill OOPS MICHAELS GRILL that I cook on LOL...
Have a fantabulous weekend and keep all who still dont have power here in thought and prayers as the heat is brutal... but THANK GOD it was not a tornado like so many have suffered through in the recient past.
