Armageddon me a bigger generator! I am so loving the click bait headlines.. Anyway, our area hit the news for sure. Several tornados touched down way way way to close to home. Like right down the street, and our neighbors saw funnel clouds over our houses. I had prepped for two days. Roof, basement and a generator , with 15 gallons of fuel ready. We also have a generator for the pump house next door so 14 homes have running water.
When your neighbors thank yo for being able to poop. Well, let’s just say its a special relationship we all have. HA.
Yesterday we lost power around 6AM and then it came on.. And then all hell broke loose. The tail end of the storm just came in and ripped apart the world. Power out, flooding ish, and general crap. The one good thing is that is was one fast storm. But the effects of the power damage was huge. A bad tornado hit Kilmarnock and tore apart a winery and trashed parts of the town and power poles, so as the power co said. A multi day restoration.
Yesterday around 7PM the power came on, and this morning around 3 AM internet. Our phone, TV and cell are all internet driven, so I had a chance to stay out of the social loop of hell for a day of peace and quiet..ish. Filled up a 12 ft trailer with yard debris and had burgers on the grill.
I hope all of our pals south and north of us did well. It was one fast storm. Thanks for all your kind wishes, and calls. YIKES, a lot of you called. Thats how I woke up at 3Am, with a bunch of missed calls.
PLEASE SHARE YOUR STORM EXPERIENCE. CLICK BAIT STYLE PLEASE.
