I'm always forever Thankful to all the men & women who are fighting and who have fought for our country. I now have some new Hero's to add to that list, its the workers for our Electric Companies. This may sound silly but when you have been without power for days, some for weeks, having power restored as good as winning the lotto!
Thanks guys! ♥

Just our Electric Company (Craighead Electric) alone had 6,000 poles down not to mention lines down everywhere too.
We had to cut path from our door to our shop. Then Chuck & my brother had to use chainsaws to clear the driveway and our road to get into town. Everyone was without power, our home town and every town around.We could not get any gas for 24 hours and then we had to wait in lines for a very long time. Everything was at a stand still. As I walked around looking at all the devastation everything was total silence except for falling limbs, I have never heard anything so quite.
(Road to my drive)
My lowest point was the first day, no power, no phone, thinking 6 weeks with no power, no work, I lost at least 5 trees in my yard (more on our land) and all the other trees were topless, none went undamaged....and then it happened....cell phone towers went down ! Yep that was my lowest point. Chuck was out clearing roads, hooking up Generators and my cell phone is OUT. I know of all the things to do with out this might seem crazy but this was my life line to all my friends and family. My only communication for the next 24 hours was I could send a text but it took about 1 hour, when I was able to receive a phone call I was so excited just their someone's voice.
Part of the yard
My Bradford pear, it split into 9 years ago, then came back out and got so big and full. Again spilt into.
Road to my drive,note the power lines Chuck had to prop up on a stick! This was day 2.
The frozen pasture, you could hardly walk through it.
Now I'm going to go hug my dryer and TV. ;)
