In addition to the county helping, The Southern Baptist Convention Disaster Relief people have been here for days with chain saws, a big John Deere tractor and lots of helpers to give a lending hand.
I very much want to thank my local police department who kept our town safe through this disaster there was no looting. And an even bigger thank you to my electric company Coastal Electric Cooperative who had our electricity on by Sunday at 5pm. Our friend who lives 40 miles inland and has a different electric company didn't get his back on until Tuesday evening.
Our internet and tv came on the same time as our electricity and our landline was back on by midday Monday. What a fantastic job! Water took a bit longer as there was a broken water main.
What's left for us is the backyard. Mostly cleanup, but there are two BIG trees that are criss-crossed in midair and they have to come down.
|The criss-cross trees, probably about 60 feet high, they will have to come down|
|Fell on the deck, hit the window, but didn't break it|
|I'm amazed how this tree was torn up, but the statue wasn't|
