We made it through, but it was scary! The winds were awful. We lost power early yesterday morning. It was so bad my Walmart and the one here closed. We had water, but the city's backup generator failed yesterday afternoon. We got water back around 9 this morning.

Still no power. The situation is that a lot of people lost power, but we're the only ones on our block, because a prcan tree in the neighbor's yard took ours out. Because everyone aroubd us has power, they'll be concentrating on areas with a bigger outage range.

We did have had our first hot food since Sunday. We waited at Huddle House, first for a table, about 20 minutes, then longer than that for food. That place was BUSY.

Then we went by Wal-Mart for more non-perishable food. They're open, but the shelves are bare. No bread, no saltines, not a lot of canned meat, no frozen, of course.

After we left there, we still needed ice, so I suggested we drive to Lumber City and see if we have phone service there. We did, so I called my uncle to check on him. No power, but he's okay and was about to head out in search of ice as well. We got our ice and came home and filled our coolers. Our freezer stuff is still frozen, not sure for how long. We had already moved the perishables from the refrigerator to a cooler, and boy, did those ice blocks from Hello Fresh come in handy. Still frozen solid.

And J, my genius, got us a power converter and battery so we can have internet and I don't go insane. Now if I can keep this phone charged...
