The cracking,popping,banging and exploding lasted for days. Trees fell on houses. The house we were in every 5 min. a big limb would bang on the roof then slide down on the ground or in the driveway. The driveway every morning had to be cleared of branches just to get out of it. Everywhere you looked looked like nuclear freeze.There was a curfew and you couldnt be out after dark or youd be ticketed. Everyone lined up for miles at any gas station that was opened and waited hours to get gas. Then on the third or forth night (half the time I could remember the day) there was this really erie thick mist and you could hardly see in front of your face. My family is now on day 10 without power and we are spending every last dime we have just to stay warm and eat. Ill be so grateful when all this is over and we can go back to normal.
I am praying for you. Hope your family is ok and gets thru this all right.

My county did not get hit really hard, but I know what a time others in the state are having. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

I just want to use this space to say thank you to all the utility crews especially ones from out of state. I know you are working long hours away from your family. Thanks to all the Gaurdsmen who have been going door to door checking on people. This has been a difficult time but could have been alot worse. We live in a wonderful place (western ky) where neighbors help neighbors. I know several people who still dont have power and wont have for several weeks. A lady I work with said her water in her toilet froze. Everyone I know has been affected by this from food spoiling to the huge amount of limb debris and damage caused. We are a strong community and can pull through this!! I am lucky to live in such a wonderful place where people care about each other.
