My Hero's ♥

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!

Many people were all electric and were trying to live in their homes with freezing temps so last week when we seen these men pulling up in my parents yard it was like seeing the Calvary coming in to save us. I so badly wanted to go thank them personally or take them some coffee but was told to stand back and not get in their way. The electric company that powers us is Craighead Electric and I can not say enough good things about how quickly they have worked (with much help from workers in other states) to restore our power.I was just reading the latest information on our power company, they had 6,475 damaged or downed poles.Most in my area are restored now or will soon be, we are all so thankful.
Thanks guys! ♥
