The truth is, we were lucky. The power is still out for some of our neighbors, but the flooding and damage could have been a whole lot worse. The power companies can’t tell us when service will be back, but the Community Center is open for those needing a shower or something warm to drink. Mr. Z’s has limited power, but they are open. The gas station has no power to the pumps, but their quick mart is open. Still, to the person whose tree fell, or to the child whose play house was crushed, this storm was serious business. To those without power, it could be a cold miserable night.
