Power Back On

Our power went on for about 8 hours yesterday, then went off for about 7, then came back on.   Internet started to work this morning so I thought I'd get everyone up to speed.  Much of North Alabama is still without power so we are grateful that we have it.  Most people in the area have left and gone to Atlanta, Nashville or beyond.  They are rolling power around the area so it probably won't be continuous.  Since Decatur has power, lots of folks flocking from all over North Alabama to get gas and food.   Both  are very valuable commodities around these parts right now.  I was able to get 8 gallons of gas yesterday.   Out from Decatur, Lou

Update from Decatur, AL

We are doing ok in Decatur.  Still without power, although a neighbor is going house to house with a generator and letting folks hook up their freezers for a couple of hours.  He said he'll come back to our house tomorrow morning.  1  million folks still without power so we're not alone. 

We had a party at our house tonight, a bunch of folks in the neighborhood had nothing better to do but sit around and talk. We needed to get rid of a lot of meat that thawed, so we turned a bad situation into a block party. Andy would have been proud.

Curfew is in effect due to looters.

Thanks for all of the concern and prayers. Keep the later coming.

Louie OK in Alabama

Louie wanted us to pass on the word that he is OK after all the tornadoes that hit near his home. They will be without power for at least the next 5 days. They are unable to go to work or school due to the effects of the storm.

I'm thankful that Louie, Kim, and the kids are OK. Praise God!

Love you,
Tina :)
