Katie got some help
 
Katie called me late yesterday afternoon. The mayor of their tiny town knew Buck, who was on the city council, and knowing Katie was a recent widow, brought 20 volunteers who spent 8 hours cleaning up the mess in her yard. It would have cost her thousands of dollars to hire that done.
She is very grateful, but this whole thing has been terribly traumatic for her.

She said to tell you all she is OK. Her cell phone is in need of a charge, however, so you may not be able to reach her.

Thank goodness Katie got some help. I can't wait until she is able to join us again. I'm continuing to pray, and am thankful for the prayers that have been answered so far.

I am so glad to hear this, though very concerned that she is still without power. I too miss her and would feel much better if she was "back here" safe and sound. Mega prayers coming your way Katie.

Thanks for the update. I have missed Katie around here and every day I wonder if she has power, if anyone is helping her, etc. KY is having a warm spell for the next several days and I hope this means the power companies can work faster to get the electric back on.

That's great. Nice to see there's still people out there that look out for others.

This is Buck still watching over her. I am so happy she got some help.
