As of today, they are still saying that most of Springfield will not have power restored until sometime this Saturday.
I am sure that I will be in with that lot, if not later, just because of the huge number of downed trees and branches on my street alone. (I took pictures and will get them posted once we have power again.)
Add to that the fact that the power line that connects my house to the utility pole was knocked down by a falling branch. It looks to be intact so it should just be a simple matter of reconnecting it. And I did call the electric company yesterday to have them note that for when they come down our street.
Fortunately, F's brother "M", who lives about a mile and a half from us got his power back last night, so we are staying with them (Teddy-ji too!). It wasn't the most ideal situation, but, it was a relief to have warmth and light.
Unless things change tomorrow or over the weekend, you may not hear from me again until next week when I'm back at work. Take care and keep those prayers a'coming!
