The noise of breaking trees was heart-breaking to hear, not to mention nerve-wracking. I constantly worried that one of the monster pines on our property was going to end up on the house. Trees continued to snap throughout the first night and all day and night the second day.
While we were safe and stayed relatively warm using our gas logs, it was not a fun week. We wore double layers of clothes for days. Cooking was done using the grill and of course, most of the house was dark most of the time.
We spent several days cleaning up debris and trying to survive in the dark. Since we have a well, we had no water while we had no power, so we collected the precipitation dripping from the roof for the first 3 days to use to flush our toilets. We also used up our drinking water supply that is stored for hurricane season, but were very glad to have it!
He was able to hook up a small generator to keep the fridge going, and we moved all of our meat from the freezer to his mother's house once her power came back on. So glad to be back to normal now!
Needless to say, no progress on the trailer, but VERY glad to be back on the grid!
