Sending all of you wishes for a happy July 4th! I wish I could add a photo and write more, but with no Internet connection and no MiFi, I am severely limited in what I can do. Currently, I'm limited to my iPad, and even that is slow and has spotty connections. The joys of storm damage!
There are still many without electricity, so I do feel fortunate to have power. The utilities have failed entirely at communications, but the linemen from Virginia and other states, as far away as Florida, have helped immeasurably. They are to be commended. They are working long hours in brutal heat to help us. There's an out-of-state truck parked at the end of my road now. I have no idea why, but so be it.
I just spent the last two hours at stores restocking Mom's refrigerator and freezer. Her power returned last night...yea!
I appreciate all your kind messages. I hope I'll be back soon.
