I finally got power back today. After throwing away a freezer full of meat and almost everything in the refrigerator. I sat down and watched the news.(I know some will wonder why I didn't put my meat outside to save it. Well around here people let their dogs run wild. Im not taking a chance on food that dogs already picked through.) but anyway...

I was watching the news and it was loaded with stories about people helping storm victims(Police, National gaurd, FEMA, Fire depts ect). Not that I needed help but it struck me the wrong way, all these people patting theirselves on the back because they are doing such a wonderful thing. I went without power for almost five days, and never seen anyone going around offering help. Im sure there were news announcements on where help was available, but seeing how I had no power, I couldn't listen to the news.
The only heros of this storm is the power company and their contractors and the state road crew for plowing the roads.

Umm no my husband has been gone for a week because of that storm with the national guard...do have a cell phone?? If u needed help then u should have called 911...the national guard went to where they were told to go they just didn't take it upon themselves to just jump in and visit everyone in Nicholas County. I do believe 72 people without housing at all and peoples houses collapsing was a little more important than no electricity to keep your meat frozen...next time use a cooler!!

I just found out that I will be without power for another week. The lines were so damaged that they plan to replace them. Playing Pioneer woman is getting old.
Thankful

I will be without power another week too but I am just glad I still have a home to restore it to! It might be an inconvenience but that's all it is!

Sorry you could not find a State policeman to save your life! but I'm so glad someone came to your aid, hopefully a fireman or even a neighbor found you in time and did assist in saving your save ! Some times our State policeman are busy with other calls that it is virtually impossible to service every citizen who calls for help. But any way, I for one am truly glad that you made it through your close call. Just remember, Your State policemen can't save everyone's life, although they do try, so give them thanks and credit for those they do help.

Ms or Mr Crybaby! You could have at least put you frozen food out in the snow and Ice and let the animals eat it, then you could have patted your self on the back and told yourself "what a great person I am" might have changed your attitude toward the (Police, National gaurd, FEMA, Fire depts ect).
great job

I saw lots of National Guard helping many people. Thanks to evryone who was out helping others. Thanks to Summersville Baptist Church for serving as a shelter and the many volunteers from the church. Thanks to the many individuals who went out of the way to help a neighbor.

.Amen!Amen!Some people didnt worry about trying to save anything because"It will get replaced by the Government" like in July. Where some people didnt qualify for getting any supplemental help.People that work, and try to provide for their families, while others dont have a care in the world. Its sad very sad!
