An Ascent into the Light!

Just minutes shy of 32 hours without power....our electricity came back on!!! Woohoo! ha Never in my life have I been so thankful for the one item we truly take for granted over any other! Do you know what it is like to wash your face in the dark? to go to the bathroom without light? to have to travel out to find something to eat? It's not fun!


Mom and I had gone for a drive, bought a portable dvd player (which of course needed charged, they don't actually have batteries), had dinner at the Grub Co...all to kill time...and when we got home were saddened to see that we still didn't have power. We sat around for awhile playing with Toby and discussing our upcoming trip to Gatlinburg. Mom had to let her dog, Midge, out to go potty one last time and I still had my laptop in the car, so we both were standing outside talking since it was lighter outside than in! We saw the REMC drive by and that was all we needed to get excited!! haha About 10-15 minutes later, we were headed back in the house and the lights came on! This made for some very happy people to say the least.


So once again I have power...the days really seemed to drag on with nothing to do but sit and stare into the darkness! The golf course is still closed due to the trees being down all over the course. I believe we'll be open for League tonight, but no official word yet, I know there is still a mess to clean up back on hole #4.


Here's a few pictures of some of the damage to the house and mom's work...

  1. Yea for electricity! I can imagine just how excited you were. Too bad about the damage, but by what Mom and Dad said about the wind, it could have been worse.
