Still No Power: Another Update

Thank you to everybody for all of your nice comments and your prayers.  We are still without power in all of our areas.  The lines for gas in TN have been up to 3 hours long, because of everybody having to come up here for supplies, etc.  They have managed to get some grocery stores in our areas of Alabama up with generators so people can get some food and supplies.

We went down to our house to check everything out and make sure it was okay yesterday and to get some more clothes.  We are now back in Tennessee with my grandparents, but they are saying it could now take until Wednesday to get power back on.  The main transformers and lines were all destroyed, so they are having to rebuild them.  It has been raining today and supposed to be tomorrow, so that could possibly delay it longer if they don't get to work on them.

I will update again in a few days.  Hope everybody else is doing good.

Thanks for the update... I feel for you!! I lived in FL during a massive Hurricane, and being without power and food and a hot shower was absolutely miserable! Being new there we didn't prepare very well... I don't think you had an opportunity to even prepare...so good luck- I'll keep you and your family and friends in my prayers...
