We got derechoed!
First -- everyone is OK. But what a mess!
Four large trees were taken out and blocked the bridge so we couldn't get off the property.
Two days later another large tree was felled at the gate and ...we couldn't get off the property.
Company was coming and the refrigerator was full... the freezer is ALWAYS full. We lost power for four days as the temperature climbed to 104. No lights, no water, no AC, no TV, no phone just the faint sounds of cats panting.
Much of West Virginia went another 5 days without power and some still don't have any. There are still parts of Shirley without phone service and we have been driving over the downed phone line.
We are still in recovery mode, but we will be back up to speed, soon.
