Knowing what it's like to clean up fallen trees (ours was Hurricane Isabel) it's a really big job. That's great that folks came out to help her. Anyone who talks to her, let her know we all still care very much and are patiently waiting to see her back here.

Elf, unless she's found a place to recharge, her cell phone is almost dead.

Yea, that's what I was thinking too. I was going to wait until later tonight...hoping she had found a place. Heck, it might be faster for her to ship her phone to one of us, we re-charge it, and send it back to her!!!!

Our local news just reported that 35,000 people in Western KY are still without power. Hopefully this little warm snap we've had will help them get the power on.

Whether it's warm or cold, it just takes time. When we saw the power company trucks on OUR street we knew it was just a matter of hours! We watched them all over the neighborhood and THEN they were there!!!!

This is why we still keep an old-fashioned phone on hand. If we lose power, all we have to do is hook it into the phone jack...it requires no electricity.
