Sorry for dropping out without a peep ladies, but of my goodness sometimes life throws you some curves.
Friday night we were hit with the storm of the century, out of nowhere!!! It was called a Delrechee. Which is a bended wind storm that hits fast and without a lot of warning. Dear husband was outside when it came through and it grabbed his truck door and bent it completely backward. Took it right out of his hand! It took out power to 1.2 million people! We we out of power for 4 days. And when we are our of power, we are out of water as we are on a well system and have an electric pump.
Then we are having record heat. It hasn't been under 100 degrees in over a week. With no a/c there have been 14 deaths in our area because of the heat.
I have spent the last two days in the hospital with my migraines. It took a team 11 hours to finally tame the migraine that started on July 3rd. I think the stress of having no power at work and the heat inside the building bordering at 100 degrees that did me in. I am home now with lots of meds and orders not to return to work until the air is working again.
Please pray for those in our region, and there are still thousands that are still without electricity and are trying to live in this awful, dreadful heat. And I feel so sorry for the linemen for AEP who are working 16-24 hour shifts trying to restore power. Those guys are exhausted. I can't imagine working outside in this heat.
I'm too tired and medicine headed tonight... maybe I'll feel more like writing tomorrow.
