WV was hit hard
I got my power back after 4 days but there are still about 100,000 of people without water and/ or electricity around here.
The nursing home where I work is miserable. They have generators but they had to move all the patient's from the front of the building to the back where they can run all the oxygen machines and fans. Some of the workers there have worked for hours on end and the patients are hot and miserable, not to mention having a hard time breathing with the heat.
As for me and my family, we lost everything in the refrigerators and freezers. We had pizza, steaks, corn, baby potatoes, hotdogs and hamburgers on the grill! Our hot tub served as a pool to cool off in. My husband and I didn't argue once since we were forced to work together! He had a full tank of gas so he drove an hour away to get ice and gas in tanks. (the county he drove to was 1 out of 2 counties in the state that didn't get hit).
Thank God for the out of state workers who have been working around the clock to assist in getting power back on.
