This is day #6 without power. A neighbor heard from a friend who heard from a friend who's friend works at LG&E that they are going to work on our down power lines today, but you know how unreliable that information can be. We will just have to wait and see if any of the rumors pan out.
I want to give a great big thanks to some of the people who have shown us generosity and kindness so far through this time.
** Our next-door neighbor, Betty, has a gas-powered generator to run her refrigerator and TV. She has allowed us to run an extension cord to her generator which is keeping our fish tanks running and our fish alive. (Right now I am plugged into the wireless router using even more extension cords in order to be on the internet briefly)
** Westport Rd Church of Christ has opened its door and their kitchen to the residents of Woodlawn Park with free hot dinners every night this week. They are planning on continuing to offer meals as long as the power is out and they have food to give away. They also have power strips plugged in to charge your cell phones and free candles for anyone who needs one. I was moved to tears when I experienced first-hand this church reaching out to the neighborhood, many of whom are not members.
** Clint & Ashley Lawrence and Joe Dan & Laura Beavers for inviting us over for dinner and allowing us to use their washer and dryer to do laundry. We have so many generous friends.
