Storm Damage

Hello World

I love my connectivity to the world.

But I have lost it for a short time.

We have been hit and hit pretty hard by devastating storms.  More than 500,000 people are without electric service in our state alone.  I can’t even get the news to be able to see what is going on.

But I have a short window to get a blog out!

Priorities you know.

It is one of the hottest days of the year.  We were hit yesterday.   I have seen houses and cars crushed.  I have not heard of anyone being hurt directly by the storms …. yet.

They are saying it will be anywhere from 5 to 7 days to get every one connected.

Nursing homes are without power, but have to have generators for life supporting equipment.  But that puts a lot of the elderly at risk of the heat.

Some people don’t have water because they depend on electric for their pumps.

I have heard sirens on and off since yesterday.

It’s wonderful to see gangs of people helping one another.  The word “gang” having an entirely new meaning.

I don’t want anyone to think I’ve no interest in your wise and funny words.  I do.  I just can’t get to them!

If you believe in prayer please say a prayer for those affected by the storms, and the heat and the lack of water.   Worse things have happened.  But that doesn’t mean this isn’t a difficult time for many.

Some houses are split right down the middle.  Some electrical lines have trapped people in their cars for hours.

Please be safe everyone.

I hope when I get home I have electric.  But I don’t expect it for many days.

I look forward to the HUNDREDS of blogs I will have waiting for me by then!
