Ik e managed to put us in the dark way up here

Postby msbadger » Mon Sep 15, 2008 12:54 pm

What a stubborn storm...not complaining we had no hardships being without power for 15hours...just bought a lot of ice and cleaned up woods a little....all we lost were 6 timber maples...tops sheared off ...a couple of beech and iron wood.....Sad that all apples... pear and acorns ect... are on ground when bow season starts Oct 18th [>:]...Oh well this may change things up a bit ....have to fix 3 stands and our hay garage folded up and bent up and blew away....20ft x12ft....have to see if it's fixable before we get our hay....[&o]...Oh well could be down south and my best wishes go out to them and the train victims and families....our son lost trees and main power to his work shop...it has it's own service but the line is still on and still on the ground with a tree on it.....we called at 7am.....he never lost power but it's his house service keeping the pole from snaping...hope they fix it soon.......
