Hi, my friends! No, I haven't been avoiding you! We've been without power for 10 days now, since the storm (dericho?) hit West Virginia two Fridays ago. I'm on the library computer now, so not much time to post. But I have lots of observations to blog about as soon as my power and internet go back up.
In the meantime, please PRAY for these specific things:
Pray for people who still might not have water--I think there are some.
Pray for the electric workers/tree cutters as they replace/repair downed power lines and trees. The heat has been almost unbearable--upper 90s. Finally getting a bit cooler, thank the Lord.
Pray that as the power goes up, there won't be fires in the lines. Also that it will stay up, so food won't go bad in refrigerators as we re-stock.
Thank you all so much. This has been such a trial, but West Virginians are true mountaineers, and we're surviving together. I just don't want to think about my 20+ loads of laundry that need to get done once we have hot water! Thank the Lord, we've had water all along (city water). But those on wells don't have water until the electric is on for the pumps.
Who knew when my last post was about the CO fires, we'd be experiencing our own natural disaster that very week? But God has protected everyone in miraculous ways. There's a house we pass by that had a huge tree fall on both sides of it, but nothing hit the house. We lost a couple trees, but nothing hit the house. Also was able to get everyone inside before the storm hit. We really had NO WARNING.
Many thanks for your prayers! Will blog as soon as I can!
