Hi everyone, I'm up at Micky D's again its been 4 nights and its getting better. Everyone is volunteering and we have water, batteries and lots of help from all the church groups. They say we still will be without electricity for 3 weeks. My hot water ran out so I broke down and went to my daughter's yesterday for a few hours. It was nice to have TV, relax on the back porch and enjoy the peace and quiet. This first picture is of my neighbors house without the roof.
This is Janice across the street from me and my driveway and street blocked by a tree thats 5 feet around. Good news my friend Karass found my mailbox today and the mail. Good thing I had a bill in there and the county didn't care when they brought in the bulldozer to clean the street. I did lose my new flower pot that goes around the mailbox post and all the pretty flowers but thats such a small loss compared to what these other people lost and it was such an old neighborhood you just wonder how many of these people had insurance.
This pic is from my back yard where I had 5 old oak trees at least 30-40 feet tall God was looking after me when they went down on my back porch and shed but never touched the house. I've had Josh & Karass my old neighbors over everyday since the tornado cutting trees, limbs, hauling stuff off to the garbage, raking, they have been such a blessing to me. My mother is fine in Athens, I haven't been to see her but I have called. My daughter had no damage except a tree knocked down. I save my cell phone for calls from the insurance company and other stuff for mom. As soon as I have electricity I'll be able to start making cards just for the stress relief. I'm suppose to get a rental car Tuesday then I can drive to Athens to see her. I thank each and everyone of you for your prayers and thank God each time I think about it for my many blessings. I have seen so much Pay it Forward in the past few days I'm delighted to say God was with all of us and is with us all just for the asking. Please know I'm thinking about all of you. Love, Jeanine
