I went out to assess the power situation this morning. It is pretty ugly. The downed tree is gone, so the middle of my road is open, but the intersection?
The last two pictures are the middle portion of the road. One destroyed street lamp and a broken utility pole. That's where the tree was across the road. You can see the cut logs below the pole.
Nope. They just keep coming. But I do admit the traffic flow is very light.
And, I think the trucks have finally given up.
Needless to say the lack of any kind of utility workers in our area is not exactly comforting. We are low priority because there are only about 10 houses on my road. But I may also say that it is quite possible that damage further along the grid needs to be repaired before they can do anything for us.
Not knowing what's actually going on is a bit frustrating.
But I shall soldier on. And as long as the fire department is my friend, the Boys and I will make do.
WaWa is open at the other end of the road and I can get there so we are not trapped.
This too shall pass......
UPDATE: Trucks from Ameren a Missouri power company have been working on the road for a good part of the day. The guy I talked to and thanked said the mess at the end of the road wasn't as bad as it looked. He wasn't sure power would be on by tonight, but he was upbeat about our getting back online soon.
Turning generator on in about a half hour.
