News says "maybe a hundred trees throughout 3 counties down due to storm"... "winds to 30 to 35 mph"... Are you kidding me??????? There is over 100 trees down, no, I mean 3 to 4 story, 200 year old trees knocked over, with roots the size of pick-up trucks still attached knocked over like dominoes, just within 3 blocks of my home. Some on houses, many on cars. Many in yards of elderly. Where is the assistance here???? We have been out of power since the storm. My next door neighbor is 86 years old and not a single "city or county employee" has checked on him. His
"montoring service for life alert hasn't even checked on him". No phones, land line nor cell. It is a disaster here.... but no one outside our community cares. Where is our governer? Where is Obama with his "fly over"? We are just taking care of ourselves, all by ourselves. We have done all that we can with only gas powered tools. Neighbors have helped neighbores, guess that is all we can expect from the outside world.
