This was the sight we saw all through town. We were blessed to not have suffered any structural damage to our home. We did not lose any large limbs from our trees.
The most frustrating part was being without power for a whole week. Our power was not restored until Saturday at 10 am. Our utility company was not properly prepared for a storm of this magnitude. Trees have not been trimmed off of power lines. There were no answers when you called for an update on the power restoration. It seemed that there was not a proper plan for restoration. Crews were in our neighborhood on six separate occasions and our power was not restored. Instead of repairing all the lines in one neighborhood and moving onto the next they were hopping all over town. This seemed to be mismanagement of both time and resources. Our neighbors power was restored two days before ours.
The last couple of days have been clean up days here. Once power was restored, I had the Mt. Everest laundry pile to tackle. Cleaning and restocking both of our refrigerators and freezers, and vacuuming. Dry mopping and sweeping just don't work as well when you have two dogs-one very furry husky.
Thankfully, the days without power were not too hot and humid. Wednesday was the only day with higher humidity and it was tough without even a fan. The house held in the heat for a long time but thankfully it cooled down on the next day.
I am glad that things are back to normal here.
