We made it through, and here at LittlePond, relatively unscathed.

The wind was awful, the worst I've seen, but we had NO trees down, just a few small pine boughs. Up the road towards town, two trees were down on power lines, one a huge oak. A neighbor the other way had a tree down at the highway, but not on the lines or road.

In town, WOW. It hit the city hard. Almost a dozen pine trees twisted and snapped at the local playground/park, and trees down all over the city, some on houses. No deaths, that I've heard, praise the Lord.

We lost power around 10pm last night, and just got it back at 10:30 tonight, so 24 full hours without. Our freezer stuff is still frozen, so no losses there. I cooked up the eggs and sausage in fridge this morning on the grill outside, and I had water for washing up (sponge baths). We used pond water to flush the toilets.

There is no bread and little meat to be found anywhere in our county. Ice is a foreign concept. The local Harvey's Supermarket is packed, as it has power, but Walmart is closed without it. Wendy's has been around the building and into Harvey's parking lot ALL DAY.

There are about 3 other restaurants and a few stores open as of 6pm today, but there are still traffic lights out in town and many still without power.

Pray for those still in the dark, those with damages and deaths, and those dealing with this mess now (in NC/VA as I speak).
