Tornado Alley

Offline AGAIN. Gone to get a generator. Sitting in the BAM parking lot, but not for long. Gotta get some breakfast and shop prices.

Yesterday morning a couple twisters came through and I ran for the closet. What I thought was hail hitting the roof was big limbs. The damage in this area was worse than during the hurricanes last fall.. downed lines, poles snapped, no phone, transformers blown.

CFM checked on the cf trailer and said the wind nearly knocked it off it's stablilizing anchors and lightning apparently hit the panel on the reefer but it still runs.

We had just said, we have to have a generator before hurricane season. Too late. They are talking about days for the power so we're going to get a generator this morning. It was a long long long night last night with no electricity and hot with not A/C.

Hope to see y'all tomorrow if I can at least hook up my modem and router to the generator.

OMG! Yes, get that generator, but also take care of yourself. That's SCARY!
