The rain was pouring down
Kia lost their carport
Flooding in the Kmart parking lot
One of the many fences blown down
Another car port blown down
The Baby-R-Us sign and Office Depot sign blew away and the electric pole was pulled out of the ground some.
I think one of the toughest parts of the storm was all the emotions that came up. Thankfully my husband took excellent care of myself and my co-worker Sarah who stayed with us. He made us some great meals via our little piggy grill. We even had eggs one morning and barbque ribs one dinner.
But it was such an empty feeling waiting for the storm to hit and having no idea when it may hit us since we did not have any power. Then there was the feeling of anxiety as we waited to find out about the power, every time I called I was told that 75% of people would have it by Tuesday and 90% by Thursday which is a very very vague answer! It was also difficult because our cell phone signal was so in and out all of the time which made it difficult to talk with family and keep them updated. My poor dad was so worried for us. The storm also made us realize we have so few friends here and we need to work on that.
I am thankful that things have finally gotten back into place and we are back into the routine at our jobs. If you could please continue to pray for all of those who lost their home during the storm it would be much appreciated!
I'm also thankful that we could roast marshmallows while the power was out!
