We are quite fortunate here with trees down, power out and no fatalities. I have been without power since Saturday at 4:30 p.m. It is not the lack of air or electricity that is getting to me but the unnatural quiet. And the sound of generators humming throughout neighborhood. I am glad JJ is not here to experience this. I have water so I am able to shower.
I worked yesterday so I saw how many trees were uprooted and on houses and power lines. It was so sad. We have been under a curfew each night. Each night, I have eaten beanie weenies in a can while reading by candlelight. I am not complaining because I have a roof over my head that isn't leaking or provides a clear view of the stars.
We were very blessed in the Roanoke Valley.
